A Muslim man, a Baptist minister and a Jewish Rabbi are coming together to Memphis next month for the ‘Laugh in Peace’ comedy tour.


Feeding the poor and needy is an act that draws us closer to Allah. We earn His forgiveness, mercies and blessings through this act of charity.

“Anyone who looks after and works for a widow and a poor person is like a warrior fighting for Allah?s cause, or like a person who fasts during the day and prays all night. (Bukhari)

The trio believe that laughter can start the ripple effect that changes the world, promotes unity and builds bridges, Commercial Appeal reported.

“Laugh in Peace is a cross-cultural show featuring stand-up comedians Gibran Saleem, Rabbi Bob Alper and Reverend Susan Sparks. Saleem is Muslim, Alper is Jewish and Sparks is Baptist,” according to an Eventbrite page for the Laugh in Peace comedy tour.

The three comics “share an inspiring philosophy — that
conversation and laughter between people of different backgrounds can build a
lasting legacy of friendship and peace,” it added.

The event, planned January 8 in Memphis, is hosted by the Memphis Friendship Foundation.

Laughter “is something that breaks down barriers,” said
Steve Stone, executive director of the Memphis Friendship Foundation.

“We just thought it’d be a great evening to get the people of Memphis together of different faith traditions and no faith traditions and have a relaxed, friendly atmosphere,” Stone said. “There’s so much common human experience.”

comedy tour, led by charity ‘Penny Appeal’, has been giving Muslims an
opportunity to speak about experiences with the public.
