2.“Why does social justice comedy work? Because first off it makes you laugh. And when you’re laughing, you enter a state of openness. And in that moment of openness, a social justice comedian can stick in a whole bunch of information, and if they’re really skilled, a rectal exam.” —Negin Farsad

5.“So there’s like a huge PR misstep that happened where Americans think that Muslims don’t denounce terrorism. I don’t know how this happened because literally every Muslim I know does denounce terrorism, so I’m like did we not tweet it enough? Like, how did this happen?” —Negin Farsad

6.“The point of the website is that it denounces terrorism while at the same time recognizing that it’s ridiculous that we have to constantly denounce terrorism.” —Negin Farsad

10.“Well, the way I like to look at it is you get one person to laugh and then a couple people laugh. And then over a lifetime, you might get like a million people chuckling. And those chuckles add up to some measure of a popular shift in perception. And that is social change. But it takes time. And it takes like millions of these chuckles.” —Negin Farsad
