One of the many characters Adel plays
According to this article by Al-Akhbar, MTV are preparing a show similar to Bassem Youssef’s El Bernameg that will be hosted by Comedian Adel Karam. I like Adel and he’s a very talented comedian but I never imagined I’d see him running a show similar to El Bernameg as it’s quite demanding; so I am interested in seeing the outcome specially that Ma Fi Metlo has become a bit boring lately.
The closest thing that we have to El Bernameg right now in Lebanon is Chi.N.N, but I don’t like it and don’t think it’s a good show to be honest.
all of the shows today are boring,they think if they add sex and swears they will become funny,the Lebanese people(not all but most of them)laugh only because they’re a bunch of idiot who protest but keep re-electing the same people who started a civil war and are steeling tax payers money
Adel is somewhat funny,but he can’t do a show like Bassem Youssef because he doesn’t have the talents of hosting(but he has talents in comedy sketches).
the funniest ones are Colbert,Stewart and the new guy John Oliver and I don’t think he can be nearly as funny as those people but he will try as hard as putting some form of sex or offensive language in every line of his show.
but that’s just my opinion
and the type of show that Bassem Youssef hosts is called News parody
I agree with Ed,
I hope he’s wrong though,
and i hope that the show doesn’t end up as a tool for mtv to express it’s political views and a cheap shot at one political side,
for a news parody to succeed it should be neutral as it should reveal and criticize every wrong doing on a political level without discrimination vis a vis the political color…
we can only wait now for the show and hope for the best
