Hulu’s Muslim comedy ‘Ramy’ refuses to be defined by Trump-era politics

In a trailer shared before the show’s panel at TCA, “Ramy” shows Youssef questioning and not always living up to the ideals of his religion, and he finds himself at odds with his family as a result. That conflict is what first forged a friendship between Carmichael and Youssef, who came together not as fellow comics but as two people of faith in Hollywood.
