Man calls police on comic of Middle Eastern descent to report joke

A Florida man called police to report a comedian of Middle Eastern descent whom he believed had told a joke that showed support for terrorism.

Standup comic Ahmed Ahmed, who is of Egyptian descent, poked fun at negative stereotypes of Muslims during a set at Off The Hook Comedy Club in Naples, Florida, on Saturday night.

"Clap if you're from the Middle East," Ahmed said, according to a clip posted on the club's Facebook page.

After a smattering of cheers, Ahmed slyly responded: "All right. We got a handful of us in in here, nice. But, hey ,it only takes one of us ... to tell a joke."

At least one member of the audience didn't get the punchline.

The man called the Collier County Sheriff's Department and told a deputy that Ahmed was organizing people of Middle Eastern descent to possibly commit terrorism.

1. Here is a funny interview with Ahmed Ahmed where he discusses the incident:

Ahmed Ahmedís performance at a comedy club Florida prompted a man who attended to call 911 the next day to complain about a certain joke the comedian was telling on stage. Ahmed Ahmed now joins The Roe Conn Show with Anna Davlantes to give his side of the story.
