MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (AP) — Muslim-American comedians will step on stage with their best jokes at Middle Tennessee State University.
The comedians will take part in a free stand-up comedy show called "The Muslims Are Coming!"
The comedy tour will present a series of free shows in August that will take the comedians to Florida, Georgia, Alabama and Tennessee from Aug. 5-15, The Daily News Journal reported. One of the final stops on the first tour is in Murfreesboro on Saturday, Aug. 13 at MTSU's Wright Music Hall.
The show comes amid controversy surrounding a proposed new Islamic Center of Murfreesboro.
Saleh Sbenaty, a spokesman for the Islamic Center, says the entire community is welcome to attend the show. Sbenaty says he hopes everyone can find something to laugh about.
