Hasan Minhaj

minaj_200Hasan Minhaj is a comedian, actor, correspondent for The Daily Show with Trevor Noah, and now the star of Homecoming King, a one-man show he wrote that’s running at Cherry Lane Theater in New York City through November 15, 2015, and hopefully even longer than that. Oh! And he was also in a Pizza Hut commercial! I mean, this guy is killin’ it. In this episode, Hasan and I talk about Homecoming King – where the idea came from, how he turned it into a one-man show, and the people who helped him put it together. I know it’s a one-man show and all, but you still don’t do this kind of thing without a lot of help. Hasan speaks very openly – as he does in the show – about racism and human judgment, two things he’s been battling his entire life. And we talk a lot about one of the main themes of the show, “Log Kya Kahenge”, which is Urdu for “What will people think?” It’s a hell of a question. This is a good one, BlocHeads. Don’t put it off… put it on. Listen on iTunes.
