Wine Tasting with Maz Jobrani in character of Jimmy Vestvood

One of the funniest and genuinely kind people – Maz Jobrani – agreed to do a unique wine tasting with us. Maz was tasting wine as his character Jimmy Vestvood from his comedy Jimmy Vestvood: Amerikan Hero.

Jimmy is a cross between Mr. Bean and Borat, with a Persian background. Jimmy, a wannabe private investigator wins the Green Card lottery and moves to America to pursue his dream of being a tough Steve McQueen type detective. However, Jimmy finds himself embroiled in a conspiracy to start the next world war while working as a security guard at an multi-ethnic grocery store.
