Hasan Minhaj’s weekly comedy show will arrive just in time for the insanity of the 2018 midterm elections.
On Thursday, Netflix dropped a promo for Patriot Act with Hasan Minhaj, which premieres October 28, with new episodes landing every Sunday thereafter. The current Daily Show correspondent, forever Homecoming King, and future beloved Indian Uncle, is the first Indian-American to host a weekly comedy show. Over the course of 32 episodes, he’ll “explore the modern cultural and political landscapes with depth and sincerity,” to which I say, fuck yeah.
Minhaj is the co-executive producer and co-creator, along with Prashanth Venkataramanujam, a head writer for Minhaj’s 2017 White House Correspondents Dinner speech. We’re about to see Minhaj everywhere: this month, he also kicks off a 16-city tour in North America called Before the Storm, and Comedy Central will air an hour-long special featuring his sketch comedy group Goatface.
Here’s the teaser for Minhaj’s new Netflix show:
