Co-Creator & Exec Producer, Parazit & Founder, Weapons of Mouse Destruction
Voice of America
Saman Arbabi, co-host, co- creator and Executive Producer of Parazit (the ‘Daily Show of Iran’) will talk about evading censorship, challenging the oppressive Iranian regime and reaching the pulse of millions of young Iranians. Parazit, which is illegal in Iran, has quickly gained recognition- becoming an international phenomenon. Saman Arbabi uses his signature wit, street art style and anti-establishment attitude to reach his audience through Web steaming, bootleg DVD distribution, blogs and Facebook, all of which have driven the program further underground and contribute to its outlaw status and popularity.
