Hasan Minhaj talks Patriot Act with The New Yorker’s Vinson Cunningham


How do you make comedy in an era that is already completely unhinged?

Former correspondent for The Daily Show, Hasan Minhaj knows that these are dark times, and he’s leaning into it. On the heels of his critically-acclaimed and Peabody Award-winning Netflix comedy special from last year, Homecoming King, Netflix signed up for an unprecedented 32 episodes of his new show, Patriot Act with Hasan Minhaj—making Minhaj the first ever Indian-American host of a weekly comedy series. Join us for an incisive discussion with Minhaj led by Vinson Cunningham, staff writer for The New Yorker, about the new show, political comedy in the age of Trump, and much more.
