Comedian, Actor, and Writer Hasan Minhaj

Janae Cummings speaks with Hasan Minhaj, a correspondent for The Daily Show and a featured storyteller for The Moth.

Hasan Minhaj

Everything we read in the tenth grade was about the U.S. government. That’s when I really started to get into politics. And in that moment I [realized] ‘The place where I’m from, India, it’s one of the oldest civilizations in the world. But this place, where I’m lucky to be born in, America, is one of the greatest social experiments of the modern era.’

Hasan Minhaj’s Web series The Truth with Hasan Minhaj has been featured in many publications including The Huffington Post, Gawker, and The New York Times.

Homecoming King, his solo theatre show, based on events from his first-generation Indian-American experience, returned to off-Broadway after a sold-out run.

He has also been seen on a variety of television programs including Arrested Development, Getting On, and @Midnight.
