Washington: In a world plagued by negative stereotypes about Muslims, US Muslim comedian Mohammad, or "Mo," Amer has offered audience a new perspective, saying that Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) had a great sense of humor, according to media reports.
"He had a great sense of humor," Amer told CBS News on Saturday. "The Prophet said, 'My way is the middle way.'"
Born in Kuwait to Palestinian parents, Amer became the first Arab-American to star in his own nationally televised one-hour stand-up special, "Legally Homeless." The show is inspired by his travels without a passport.
Tackling all hot topics, Amer focuses on breaking stereotypes surrounding Islam and Muslims.
Amer believes a comic's honesty on stage can offer a fresh perspective.
"I'm a comedian. My most important goal is to get people laughing and cracking up," Amer said.
"If you can get them to laugh and have them think at the same time, then you got something", he added.
