Hasan Minhaj is the host and creator of the weekly comedy show “Patriot Act with Hasan Minhaj” that premiered on Netflix in October 2018. The series explores the modern cultural and political landscape with depth and sincerity through his unique comedic voice. Last year Minhaj earned rave reviews for his one-hour Netflix comedy special “Hasan Minhaj: Homecoming King” that earned him a 2018 Peabody Award, and for his performance hosting the 2017 White House Correspondents' Dinner. A first generation American, Minhaj joined “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart,” where he was Jon’s last hire, in November 2014 as a correspondent and continued on in that role after Trevor Noah took over as host the following year. He remained on the show through August 2018.
