Meet Hasan Minhaj, the Last Correspondent Hired by Jon Stewart for ‘The Daily Show’


Comedian Hasan Minhaj is the last corespondent hired by Jon Stewart before he announced he was leaving The Daily Show.

In this episode of This Is Stand-Up, Minhaj performs his solo show, “Homecoming King,” directed by Greg Walloch at Upright Citizens Brigade.

His show chronicles his experiences as a first-generation Indian-American growing up in Davis, California, and his memorable experience auditioning for Stewart.

Minhaj will take his one-man show Off-Broadway later this year.
