Bassem Youssef's New Book for Kids: The Magical Reality of Nadia

Jonas PR

Bassem Youssef was a heart surgeon in his home country of Egypt before becoming the host of AlBernameg, the first political satire show in the Middle East. AlBernameg eventually became the most watched show across the region with 30 million viewers every week and Youssef was dubbed ‘The Jon Stewart of the Middle East.’ Youssef has appeared on The Daily Show, The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and was featured in Time 100, the magazine’s list of the world’s most influential people.

We got the chance to talk with Bassem Youssef this week.  He's got a new book out for kids called "The Magical Reality of Nadia".
