Stand-up comic/actor Maz Jobrani, aka the “Persian Pink Panther,” spreads holiday mirth Iranian-style. A member of the Axis of Evil Comedy Tour, Jobrani also co-hosts the podcast Minivan Men (with fellow comics Al Madrigal and Chris Spencer) and last year starred in two movies, I Come in Peace and Jimmy Vestvood: Amerikan Hero. Next year, the funnyman will release his memoir, I’m Not a Terrorist, but I’ve Played One on TV, in which he opens up about life during the Iranian revolution, his family’s move to America and his struggle to finding nonstereotypical acting roles in Hollywood.
