Comic Hasan Minhaj On Roasting Trump And Growing Up A ‘Third Culture Kid’

As the American-born child of parents who emigrated from India, comic Hasan Minhaj often feels a little out of place. “I exist in this hyphen,” he says. “I’m an Indian-American-Muslim kid, but am I more Indian or am I more American? What part of my identity am I?”

Those are the kinds of questions Minhaj deliberately sidestepped when was getting his start in comedy. “It was almost like I was on the playground all over again,” he says of his early career. “I just was afraid if I get real … people aren’t going to like it; they’re going to think I’m a freak.”

After years doing stand-up, Minhaj became a correspondent with The Daily Show in 2014. The following year, he starred in Homecoming King, a one-man stand-up show in which he began to open up on stage about his experiences as a “third culture kid” who doesn’t fully share in either the culture of his parents or that of his hometown of Davis, Calif.

“It wasn’t until I started exploring the personal stuff, the one-man-show stuff, that I kind of got a chance to be more open to the audience and to my family,” he says.

Minhaj’s new stand-up special, which is also called Homecoming King, is available on Netflix starting Tuesday.

Russell Howard to Shoot Netflix Special During Final Leg of His International Tour

It’s about time that Russell Howard got a U.S. distributed comedy special. 

This latest tour he went on was truly international and one of the biggest we’ve heard of in recent memory (maybe only Weird Al’s last tour was as big or bigger?) as Howard went all around and sold out shows in the UK, the U.S., U.A.E., Sweden, Norway, Hong Kong, Singapore, China, Australia, and Canada.

In any case, Howard and his comedy are a charming whirlwind and will hopefully get a bit more notoriety in the States soon. 

Maria Bamford’s New Special “Old Baby” Delightfully Continues Her Mission of Inclusivity, Understanding, and Acceptance

Over the years, Maria Bamford has done comedy specials in theaters and in her house in front of her parents. However, she hasn’t done both in the same special until now.

In fact, Old Baby, her new special that is now streaming on Netflix, shows Maria doing stand-up in front of a bench, at a movie theater, at a bowling alley, in a nice, big theater in DTLA, and more. 

All of this, as far as we can see, lines up with Maria’s life-affirming comedy as it is bringing people from all walks of life, literally, together to enjoy Maria’s expert repertoire of characters and brilliant comedic distillation of her world view, farts and all.

Go enjoy Old Baby now and you just might feel better about the world for a little while.
