The arrest order was issued in response to complaints filed by 12 people after Youssef, who hosts a weekly satire show called "El-Bernameg," aired an episode making fun of an interview Morsi had with TV anchor Amr El-Leithy in February, Ahram Online reported Saturday.
Egypt's prosecutor-general said the arrest warrant accuses Youssef of "insulting the president and Islam."
A number of Islamists filed a lawsuit against Youssef in January, claiming he subverted "the standing of the president" during his show. Charges in that case were dropped before a trial.
