Laughing in Marrakech
If you are looking for a light hearted reason to visit Marrakech then, check out the Festival of Laughter, which will be held from 3 to 5 June 2010, at Palais des Congres in Marrakech.
Over twenty comedians from France, Belgium and Morocco will participate in this event, which will also hold a competition for young talent. A wide range of shows will be showcased, including one-man-shows and stand-up comedy, animation, burlesque, dance, concerts, games, gags and even shows for kids. The Marrakech Festival of Laughter will be directed by the talented Jamel Debbouze.
And to get you in the mood here is an offering from the Islamic comedy team Allah Made Me Funny!
After they had brought their first baby home from hospital, Fatima suggested to her husband, Nasruddin, that he try his hand at changing nappies,
"I'm busy,"Nasruddin said. "I'll do the next one."
The next time the baby was wet,Fatima asked if he was now ready to learn how to change the nappy.
Nasruddin looked puzzled.
'Oh,' he replied finally. "I didn't mean the next nappy. I meant the next baby!"
