That is the premise of a new movie called "Looking For Comedy In The Muslim World", out now in the U.S... I don't know why they went to the trouble of making this movie. I can speak from experience that overly religious people from ALL religions are generally stone-faced and humorless.
The film was also screened at the recent Dubai Film Festival, where it apparently met with mixed reactions.
Don't expect to see it here anytime soon...
