"Mr. Obeidallah will bring his perspective to the Q&A presentation before opening the floor to the voters," BlueWaveNJ said in a statement.

Obeidallah -- born in Lodi and raised in Paramus -- is a lawyer, writer, comedian and host of SiriusXM radio’s daily program “The Dean Obeidallah show,” making him the first Muslim-American to host a national radio show.
Obeidallah was also the co-director/co-producer of the comedy documentary entitled “The Muslims are Coming!,” a film about Muslim-American comedians who performed free stand-up shows across the South and West to try to counter anti-Muslim bigotry.
