Nick America #10: Hasan Minhaj

about 1 year ago

I went to dAily Show studios in NYC and sat down with my friend and senior corespondent, Hasan Minhaj. Hasan just released an amazing new Netflix special called Homecoming King. We discussed what kind of upbringing led to the making of a special with such personal and sometimes heavy subject matter. We talk about the shared feeling of feeling like mutants and what us and can be done as far as representing minorities more accurately in entertainment. All that and more. Watch Hasan weeknights on The Daily Show and make sure to stream his special Homecoming King on Netflix. Follow Hasan on Twitter at: @hasanminhaj and tell him what you thought of this episode.
