This was once comedian Ali Mafi's intro line: "America's only gay, fat, Muslim stand-up comic! Join me as I live what might be the most liberal life in history!" Funny, yes, but recently he's lost weight. Has it affected his brain? Probably not, since he still nabbed an opening spot for Marga Gomez at her New Year's Eve show. We don't really care whether hes fat or not, as long as he still tells jokes about getting "rocked" and takes potshots at Mahmoud Ahmedinejad: Naturally, Mafi doesn't like the guy who claimed there were no gay Iranians, since Mafi is one himself. He appears at the virulently antiValentine's Day comedy show, T.G.I.F.F., which also features acid-tongued Yayne Abeba, 75-year-old Lynn Ruth Miller, and former bowling champion Ronn Vigh.
