Yaseen Mazin was six years old when he first saw U.S. soldiers in his Baghdad neighborhood. His family fled, and as a teenager he was living in a Sacramento suburb. That’s when his older brother played him a George Carlin comedy special. It had an impact, and today he works through his past — and speaks up for refugees — as a stand-up comedian, finding the humor in tragedy.
