During his stand-up performance, Leeper Mekki talked about his “weird” experience of growing up in a house with two religions, because his mom was Muslim and his dad was Christian.

Even so, he explained that it was not an uneasy experience. Instead of forcing one on him, his parents, he said, were like “No, it’ll be fine, we’ll just let him pick. Come on Mek, there’s no pressure. After all, you are eight. It’s about time you made a decision, you know. Don’t worry, one of us has to be wrong, so there is that.
