In case you missed it, Gal Gadot aka Wonder Woman is taking the world by storm, and Israel could not be prouder. Some countries, however, have banned the film allegedly because the lead actress is an Israeli who served in the IDF.

Yohay Sponder and Shahar Hason, two of the very funny Israeli comedians doing stand-up in English, explain the 'real' reason Lebanon and other Arab countries won't show the international blockbuster, plus their thoughts on Gilad Shalit, texting while driving, and NYC taxi drivers.
