The best way to start a conversation is with laughter.

Scott Blakeman and Dean Obeidallah want to build bridges, promote tolerance and encourage conflict resolution between Jews, Muslims, Arabs and people of all backgrounds and religions.

Standup for Peace is the disarmingly funny comedy show that breaks new ground by finding common ground.

For the past thirteen years, Scott and Dean have brought campuses and communities together by standing up for tolerance, peace and understanding.

Because if we can laugh together, we can live together.

One thing I got out of this was that laughter really does bring people together. No matter where you’re from, who you are, laughter brings out the best out of everyone.
