Political Satire Iranian-American Style

Friday, January 14, 2011

Transcript

A new Voice of America TV show has hit a nerve with Iranians inside and outside Iran. It's called "Parazit" (which means static in Persian) and it's a weekly half-hour of political satire often compared to "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart." The show's host Kambiz Hosseini and executive producer Saman Arbabi say millions follow them online and they describe how political satire works when the butt of the jokes is an authoritarian government.

Although their antics are entertaining and a fresh new view in to the politics of iran this show can create controversy and conflict within the country. By creating comedy from talking about sensitive politics in Iran the public can grow to be divided in how they see the government. This is why politicians are concerned and making attempts to ban this program because of the controversy and uprisings it could potentially create against the government.
THis show seems like a great addition to the variety of diverse television shows out there on the air. The fact that the Iranian government would ban it, although understandable in the circumstances, seems a little unnecessary considering all the freedom of speech and press we have here in the United States today. More power to the creators for trying to put something out that is very controversial.

In this article, Political Satire Iranian-American Style, it talks about how a few guys started and Iranian Daily Show called Parazit. This show is so controversial to the Iranian government that it has been outlawed all over Iran and can only be seen on illegal satellite and online on youtube. SInce this show has aired, it has become very popular and now has over 17 million views on facebook.
Although they did not want the show to become political it did. The reporter compares them to The Daily Show, with Jon Stewert because they take news and make it where people understand but in a comedic way. They do skits to make people see there point of view, like when the Iranian government said that they couldn't speak on the radio unless they spoke arabic they did a skit where they only spoke two Arabic words to get into a club then went to heaven and then god fond out that they didn't speak Arabic and kicked them out.

the reason this show is so successful is because finally someone is delivering the news with humor, passion, and in a frank way vs. the Ketaabi way most other Iranian Journalist present their show.

Nima from San Francisco

Parazit gives Iranian hope, laughter and 30 minutes of bliss. For a totalitarian regime that suppress freedom of being must be very excruciating to see what people really think about them. I would not sleep good had I known people are coming to bring me down.
Thanks Saman and Kambiz.

love you both guys! because you are men of action. if every single Iranian in any part of the world start acting, doing whatever he can do from the very point he is in like these two genius guys, we will be successful in freeing Iran.

The show is really great ... these guys are shattering the sacred figure created out of leaders in Iran who don't have any respect for people in their own country, nor anywhere else in the world.

Wow ,it was very good, Thank you very much Saman and Kambiz. We watch parazit every week, you are the best.

Mina from Canada

I'm addicted to parazit. They're simply the best. By the end of the week when we're all drained and outraged by the stupid shows Islamic Republic puts up, it only takes a bit of my time to watch Parazit on facebook and then I feel like ice cold water has been poured on me after I caught on fire. They speak the truth and state what we think. Without them mocking the Iranian Sate Media each week it feels like an unaccomplished mission. It may be a comedy show, but quite frankly, it's a WAR!!!

Jan. 16 2011 10:16 PM
nazkhatoun from LA

Thanks NPR! Saman and Kambiz thanks for your awesome program! Good job guys! Keep it on...

Sara from California

They are smart.. Sometimes I think that the only fun happy happening in my whole week is watching Parazit on Fridays...

Jan. 16 2011 09:47 PM
Behzad from Iran

I just want to point one of the interviewer's questions regarding credibility of show while being employee of US government, as far as i am familiar with VOA policy, no VOA program needs to support US policy and can be produced and broadcasted as long as it is not against US profits.

Jan. 16 2011 09:44 PM

Pleseeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeessssssssseeeeeeeeeeee reflect this news:
According to WikiLeaks, the Revolutionary Guard's Chief of Staff, Mohammed Ali Jafari, slapped Ahmadinejad across the face right in the middle of the meeting, shouting, "You are wrong! It is you who created this mess! And now you say give more freedom to the press?"

Green soldier from Iran

Kambiz and Saman are the true voice of Iranian youths. throw whatever you hear from Iran's regime to trashcan. These two guys are the real image of Iranians. It feels sad to see the world only knows Iran through this despotic regime. I hope soon after freedom they perform in their country Great Persia.

Jan. 16 2011 12:26 PM
Eric Hamell from Philadelphia

The interviewer stated that "we don't have mass murderers in American politics." Oh, really? Have you forgotten that George W. Bush signed over a hundred death warrants as governor of Texas?

Parazit is the best view of the huge contradiction in Iran. Big gap between pacifist Iranian people with fascist regime of Iran.
