Zahra's a bit like the country of Turkey, in that she's a mix of Eastern and Western culture, and also she is a bird. A fun look into Eastern and Kanye Western Culture.

This show is about celebrating our differences and uniting our similarities with the Middle East. Many Westerners think Middle Eastern people are backward thinking. But that's only because they write from right to left, and not left to right. If the West or the East changed it, we would all be on the same page.

This is a 'silly' show about a 'serious' topic. In this current climate in particular, there has never before been more segregation between the West and The Middle East. 'Talk Like An Egyptian' highlights the importance of Integration, not Segregation whilst being 'very funny'.

The show contains canned laughter, an actual Pyramid of Giza, Zahra's Dad teaching her Arabic and the second most powerful Arab Woman In The World 2015 (Amal Clooney). Zahra should have got the woman who won the First Most Powerful Arab Woman In The World, but because she didn't marry George Clooney, she didn't know who she was.

As heard on BBC Radio 4 Extra and BBC Radio 2
