L’Islam et l’humour: un rire communautaire ou un rire universel?

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Electronic versions



This article analyses what the relationship between humor and Islam demonstrates about media representations of Arabs in France. It concentrates on the humorous French website À part ça tout va bien – which has the slogan « who said that Muslims did not have a sense of humor » – and compares it to the performances of the American trio Allah Made Me Funny. It will examine to what extent these projects are a source of a liberating form of laughter rather than a community-specific laughter, and the conclusions that one can draw from them about media discourses concerning Arabs.
