We speak with Palestinian-American comedienne, actress and philanthropist, Maysoon Zayid who uses humour to inspire cultural understanding; Colin Quinn, an American comedian and actor whose one-man show "Long Story Short" takes a satiric look at the history of man; and Egyptian-American comedian and actor Ahmed Ahmed, who, in his film Just Like Us, documents his travels to four Middle Eastern countries, proving that Arabs, despite misconceptions, do in fact have a sense of humour.

You can join the conversation. Watch the show live on Thursday, April 28, at 1930GMT. Repeats can be seen on Friday at 0430GMT, 0830GMT and 1430GMT.
