Tickling Giants, directed by Sara Taksler, is a 2017 documentary film about the story of Bassem Youssef. In the midst of the Egyptian revolution of 2011, Bassem Youssef makes a decision to leave his job as a heart surgeon to become a full-time comedian. Dubbed “The Egyptian Jon Stewart,” Bassem creates the satirical show "Al Bernameg". Tickling Giants follows the team of Al Bernameg as they endure physical threats, protests, and legal action, all because of jokes.
