This is the conundrum of the present regimes in the Arab world. They still want to control youth; they want to be in control as they did in the 1950s and '60s. But that doesn't work anymore. Now with just a Wi-Fi link, you can understand what's happening in the world.

这是阿拉伯世界现行政权的难题。他们仍然想控制年轻人;他们想像上世纪五六十年代那样掌控一切。但这已经不管用了。现在只要一个Wi-Fi连接,你就可以了解世界上发生了什么。

My show in Egypt was called, 'The Show,' or, 'Al Bernameg' in Arabic. Basically, it was a political satire show. It started on Internet by three, four-minute episodes, and then it evolved into a live show in a theater, which was something that was unprecedented in the Arab world.

我在埃及的节目叫‘节目’,或者阿拉伯语的‘阿尔-伯纳梅’。基本上,这是一场政治讽刺节目。它从网络上开始,三、四分钟的剧集,然后演变成戏剧中的现场演出,这在阿拉伯世界是前所未有的。

When we overthrew Mubarak, we did this in 18 days. And because we were very naive and very unexperienced in revolutions, we thought that that was it. It is very difficult to imagine that you can actually get rid of a dictatorship that has been there for 60 years only in 18 days. So we were very naive.

当我们推翻穆巴拉克时,我们在18天内就做到了。因为我们很幼稚,也没有革命的经验,所以我们认为就是这样。很难想象你真的能在18天内摆脱一个已经存在了60年的独裁政权。所以我们很天真。

Egyptian comedy has a very, very old tradition. Our theater and our movies are just, like, amazing. And Egypt is kind of like the Hollywood of the Middle East. I mean, we had cinema maybe decades before the other Arab countries ever got independence.

埃及喜剧有一个非常非常古老的传统。我们的剧院和电影真是太棒了。埃及有点像中东的好莱坞。我是说,在其他阿拉伯国家独立前的几十年,我们就有了电影。

I didn't invent satire. I didn't come up with it. And it will continue to be a very powerful tool to disrupt political taboos and social taboos and religious taboos, because those taboos are always used to control and to curb people's way of creativity and thinking, by making them feel guilty because they want to make a change.

我没有发明讽刺。我没想到。它将继续成为破坏政治禁忌、社会禁忌和宗教禁忌的有力工具,因为这些禁忌总是被用来控制和遏制人们的创造力和思维方式,使他们感到内疚,因为他们想做出改变。

A lot of people tend to glorify the role of satire and comedians. They put them up as role models, as fighters for the truth and against tyranny, and I think that's overrated.

很多人倾向于美化讽刺和喜剧演员的角色。他们把他们当作榜样,作为真理和反对暴政的战士,我认为这被高估了。
