“Babak and Shahram”

Babak and Shahram have just arrived and are already up on facebook and Youtube, with two five-minute clips on their awkward, confused and hilariously funny encounters with life in North America!

The sitcom stands out for its wonderful acting, genuine idea, and refreshing & edgy approach to Iranian culture. If you are not a Persian speaker, you would probably identify more strongly with the third, non-Iranian character silently present in both clips; if you are a Persian-speaker, then you would feel all the undercutting nuances, and I am afraid you just got to live with it!

Let’s follow the promising Babak and Shahram, hoping they would not fully assimilate as they carry on and settle down.

Adventures are all rolling in their facebook page.
