In episodes 17 & 18 from the past two weeks, Joe Show mocks Egypt's new 'American-style' prison and overhyped human rights strategy, the anniversary of UAE-Israel normalisation, and Lebanon's hapless new government

  

Al-Araby TV, the home of the Joe Show, is part of the same family that includes al-Araby al-Jadeed newspaper and The New Arab. Stay tuned each week for a translated round-up of the funniest jibes on Joe Show and English-language subtitled clips from the show's most biting digs. This week's round up is chosen from episodes 17 and 18.

Lebanon's new government: Got change?
