Qaddafi is Arab world's funniest comedian, says Egyptian funnyman.

Summary: RIYADH: For Egyptian comedian Adel Imam, there's nobody funnier in the Arab world than the African "king of kings" (lol!) Muammar Qaddafi.

According to Al-Akbhar Egyptian daily newspaper, Imam said with the Libyan strongman's fall, Africa would lose a "master buffoon."

By ARAB NEWS"My greatest wish in life is to act with Qaddafi in one of his comedy plays and that he would achieve overwhelming popularity, eclipsing my own," Imam said.

The comedian added that he once performed in a play entitled "Al-Zaeem" ("The Leader"), part of which is about Qaddafi. But when he tried to take the play to the Libyan people, "Qaddafi denied permission."

Imam also ridiculed the leader for making weird claims that his opposition in Libya are drug addicts.

"It is quite evident, on the other hand, that it's Qaddafi who is under the influence of such drugs," he said.

Imam believed that Qaddafi is finished.

"This mentally unbalanced man is a war criminal," he said. "Or else how would he fancy that Libya is his personal property?"
