Comedy Skits Expose Discrimination and Corruption

Sheno Ya3ni (which translates as “What’s that?” or “So what?”) is a group of actors from the Arab Gulf and the Middle East who created a series of online videos to expose and challenge discrimination and corruption in the Kuwaiti society and the political system. Their first five videos, in which they make fun of politicians in public announcements, coincided with the Kuwaiti parliamentary elections in February 2012, reaching on average 40,000 viewers. The group’s YouTube channel now has over 3 million video views.
