Egypt's most popular satirist Bassem Youssef joined Harvard's Institute of Politics at the John F. Kennedy School of Government as a resident fellow for the spring semester, almost a year after his program was taken off the air for lambasting Egyptian presidents and military men.The surgeon-turned-satirist has been largely outside Egypt and out of public view since his landmark program was pulled off the air in April 2014 ahead of Egypt's presidential elections – which former military chief Abdel-Fattah al-Sisi won by a landslide.Youssef also said he was concerned about his and his family's safety.
