For Comedian Kumail Nanjiani, Getting Personal Is Complicated

On people yelling “Kumar” at him on the street:

“The representation of brown people on TV has changed quite a bit and I think that goes a long way because if the only person you know is Kumar from Harold & Kumar [Go to White Castle] then that’s easy, but if we’re represented better then you can’t really do that and I think it’s happening a little bit. I actually saw [the actor who played Kumar] Kal Penn tweeted a few days ago he said that somebody congratulated him on Silicon Valley and I was like, “OK, good. Now you know how it has been for me for the last 10 years.”

Max, Scottish Terrier (1 y/o), Penn Valley Park, Kansas City, MO • “He’s a rescue from a puppy-mill and he loves watching TV.”

Dear Photograph,
As far back as I can remember, from Memorial Day weekend until Labor Day weekend, we spent many summer days at this pool (Penn Valley Athletic Club). I never thought I would be raising my kids in the same area where I grew up, but I am. How fortunate I am to get to re-live these childhood memories, and how fortunate my children are to be forming their own memories of summer fun at the pool!

Kelce, German Shepherd (4 y/o), Penn Valley Park, Kansas City, MO • “She’s named after the Kansas City Chiefs player, Travis Kelce. A prisoner trained her for 5 weeks before I got her.”

Tesla, Border Collie mix (2 y/o), Penn Valley Park, Kansas City, MO • “She’s named after the scientist, Nikola Tesla. She’ll kill you with kisses.”

Paloma, Siberian Husky (1 y/o), Penn Valley Park, Kansas City, MO • “She crawls into tight spaces and acts like a cat. She loves boxes.”

Nate, Puli (6 y/o), Penn Valley Park, Kansas City, MO • “Nate could kind of do without people. They’re herding dogs – sheep respond to their high pitch bark and the way their hair twirls through the air.”

Bart, Puli (7 y/o), Penn Valley Park, Kansas City, MO • “Bart is needy. They’re a little gestalt – sometimes I look at them from across the room, and I’m like, ‘Is that your butt or your head?’”
