Mideast Minute
Mideast Minute is the first satirical news show on Comedy Central. The show satirizes America's foreign propaganda. Pardis Parker plays host Jamsheed al-Jamsheedi. Speaking to Saudi Gazette, Parker said the show specifically pokes fun at the absurdity of America's foreign propaganda. "Where it sometimes feels like they're trying to convince us that a circle's a square. We poke fun at America's foreign propaganda, trying to convince Middle Easterners that everything's OK in the Middle East," Parker said.
Talking about his role in the show, he said: "It's a show I did several years ago as a web series. Comedy Central liked the concept, and our hope is it finds a larger audience. It's a fairly specific joke we're telling each week, and a bit different than what you'd find elsewhere. Not sure there's anything similar out there."
Parker previously appeared on CBS, ABC, CBC, Showcase, the Family Channel, Comedy Central, and many others.
Episodes hit Comedy Central's Snapchat Discover channel on Thursday, cc.com on Friday, and Comedy Central's YouTube channel on Saturday.
