Show: Hasan Minhaj, Homecoming King

REVIEW

The Daily Show?s Hasan Minhaj uses his Netflix stand-up special, Homecoming King, to weave an intricate and hilarious account of his life as a son of Indian-American immigrants. Sure that means there are plenty of funny cultural learning curves. Minhaj describes how his dad took him to Home Depot instead of Toys-R-Us for his birthday and how he struggled to fit in with a ?bunch of Ryan Lochte?s? in high school, but what really makes this special stand out is how Minhaj manages to be bluntly honest about the difficulties of being brown in America without ranting about Muslim bans, Trump?s presidency, and other obvious issues that have been touched on before.
