Hasan Minhaj is a comedian, actor, host, and writer who will appear at Mayo Performing Arts Center on Aug. 18 at 7 p.m.
In November 2014, he debuted as a full time correspondent on the Emmy and Peabody award-winning THE DAILY SHOW (he was the last hire Jon Stewart made). He is currently the longest-running correspondent. In Fall 2018, he will be departing The Daily Show for his own weekly show at Netflix, which premieres in October 2018 and has an unprecedented 32 episode order. Hasan is the first Indian American host to front a weekly comedy show.
In 2014, he was invited to be a part of the Sundance Institute’s prestigious New Frontier Story Lab where he developed his solo show HOMECOMING KING. The show debuted off-Broadway at the Cherry Lane Theatre in Winter 2015 to critical acclaim, and a subsequent sold-out national tour. HASAN MINHAJ: HOMECOMING KING is now streaming as a comedy special on Netflix, and has been received to rave reviews. It has also been nominated for a 2018 Peabody Award, and he will also be hosting the award ceremony. In 2017, Hasan had the prestigious honor of hosting the annual White House Correspondents Dinner in Washington DC.
