Aasif Mandvi's job title as a TV correspondent is both a complete joke and utterly realistic: Senior Muslim Correspondent.
He works for "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart," the highly rated comedic news program that, at its best, can be even more influential than real American newscasts. And his work under that title, as well as countless others ("Senior Middle East Correspondent," "Senior Asian Correspondent") has propelled him to prominence.
But the comedian is no longer just going for laughs. In his new play, "Disgraced," Mandvi takes a serious look at the tensions between Muslims, Jews and Christians that linger in post-9/11 United States.
