In his first stand-up special| Hasan Minhaj weaves humorous and heartbreaking anecdotes to tell his life story as an Indian-American Muslim. Topics include
racism| bullying and meeting the demanding expectations of his immigrant parents.
This comedy special is Hassan’s best work by far. The use of the screen behind him to aid in his jokes was helpful, and his storytelling is interesting.
I can definitely see how this would not be as funny for those that are not South Asian or have limited exposure to this community, but you have to view this from a different lens to appreciate it’s comedic humor.
For South Asian-Americans, it is a validation that their stories are part of the American fabric. For those not from this community, take this comedy act as an educational tour in the intricacies of living a dual life as an American born immigrant child.
It doesn’t rely on the classic "Apu-dad Indian accent" humor that Russell Peters is well known for. It is simply a story, and one that is told excellently.
By the end of it, maybe you’ll see that his goal isn’t necessarily to Americanize his experience, but to share it as authentically as possible. It is up to the viewer to take the humor as it is, and to perhaps see comedy from a new lens.
