Egyptian satirist Bassem Youssef laughs during an interview with The Associated Press at his studio in downtown Cairo, Egypt, Wednesday, Jan. 8, 2014. Youssef, often compared to U.S. comedian Jon Stewart, says his team will bring back its popular television show poking fun at politics in a country still beset by turmoil following a July military coup. However, he acknowledged the challenges facing him and others in Egypt now in an interview with The Associated Press. (AP Photo/Nariman El-Mofty)
