French African comedian Dieudonne is back on stage in Paris

French African comedian Dieudonne is back on stage in Paris with a show that has a critical and ironic attitude toward revisionism and the Holocaust. He specializes in disputing the “official” history of the Holocaust, of Jews and of slavery. Opening his show with a parody of a Nazi speech he threatens to deport those viewers who will not turn off their cell phones. His monologue includes such claims that he has converted to Judaism because it’s a “religion of profit," that if Bernard-Henri Levy is truly a philosopher maybe the gas chambers did exist and, referring to the troubles of Robert Faurisson, that history is for idiots.

A stand-up guy (in both senses).
