The Russell Show: How the neighbour pissed me off!

It's normal for us to have problems with our neighbours every once in a while. After all, nobody's perfect. I'm usually a nice guy, but even there's so much that I'm willing to take. For example, I had to repeatedly tell my neighbour whom I share the back balcony with, to scoop up after his dog.

I'm sure many of us have gone through that before. Except my neighbour was a bit slow keeping up with his responsabilities. So here's what happened after I spoke to my neighbour twice in the last two weeks about his dog.

Dear Daily Show with Jon Stewart, Canadians came up with the idea first

Dear Aasif Mandvi of The Daily Show,

I watched the Daily Show, February 17 edition, last night, and as usual was left in stitches. Your feature segment was about finding a solution to the problem about Americans that view Muslims negatively. Your idea was to come up with a Muslim version of The Cosby Show (The Qu'osby Show) where Muslim stereotypes are frequently made fun of. By doing so, maybe Americans that view Muslims negatively will be aware of their errors and be more tolerant.

I thought that I'd let you know that your friendliest neighbor up north has already been broadcasting the very comedy that you thought of. It's called Little Mosque on the Prairie.

The show is currently in its fifth season and is a big hit up here in Canada. Check the clips below.

Here's the link to the February 17, 2011 episode of The Daily Show.

And here's a clip of the Pilot episode of Little Mosque on The Prairie.

Get in touch with show creator, Zarqa Nawaz. I'm sure that he would love to work with Comedy Central to help bring his show south of the border and into American homes.
