VERY good! Hasan has a bright future.

You would have to be EXTREMELY humor-challenged if you find this stand-up special boring and/or unfunny. Many, many comics mine their lives for stand- up material and Minhaj does so with a realness that you seldom hear. To be able to take an audience from side-splitting laughter to tears with just a turn of phrase is astounding and Minhaj does so with aplomb. For the record, I'm lily-white and have almost no experience with the Indian/Muslim community. Those here that only watched "2-3 minutes" and then shut it off, you do yourself a disservice by not allowing different views than your own to enter your heads. Don't miss this!

A Comedy for the "Others" in the White Suburb

Someone once said that satire occurs when one faces an absurdly unjust scenario that can't be changed but only laughed at. For those who find Homecoming King boring, the white suburbia must've been a perfectly normal place to be themselves. So congrats for not being able to enjoy the show. For those of us who have different skin color and are possibly immigrants, Hassan Minhaj told our similar experience with veracity and gut. Being the "others" has helped colored immigrants developed a third-person's perspective to look at ourselves, or specifically the ability to see ourselves as the exotic and foreign creatures from white people's perspective. If you don't find Hassan Funny, probably you've looked at yourselves in the first perspective your whole life. As a Chinese immigrant who went to high school in the suburbs, I'm drawn to Hassan's story even though I know little of Indian culture. After all, who doesn't have that "white princess(or prince)" complex?

Not your typical stand up special, But special nonetheless!

This show is awesome! Not your typical stand up special, but Hasan has constructed a fantastic way to tell his story that is both hilarious and touching at the same time. Try to ignore the zero star reviews from racist Fox News viewers.
