Hasan Minhaj Readies His Netflix Weekly Comedy Debut Arriving October

Hasan Minhaj

The weekly show will explore the modern cultural and political landscape with Minhaj's signature depth and sincerity.

Back in March Netflix announced its historical plans of having the first Indian-American host (Hasan Minhaj) for an upcoming comedy show.

Thirty-two episodes have been ordered and Netflix has even dropped off a short and sweet teaser to really get you pumped. Each week, Minhaj will investigate the trends shaping our messy world using his storytelling ability and distinct point of view.

"I'm thrilled to be joining the Netflix family as the country braces for another election season", Minhaj said in a statement at the time. 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.

Ryanair strike: One in six flights cancelled in pilot walkout
The cancellations come after hundreds of passengers were stranded at London's Stansted Airport as a result of storms on Tuesday. Ryanair will then be forced to cancel 400 of its 2,400 planned flights that day.

The dance card of Minhaj - a first generation American who's been frank about his experiences while growing up in the 1990s as a child of immigrants - is chock full right now.

Patriot Act with Hasan Minhaj is executive produced by Hasan Minhaj, co-creator Prashanth Venkataramanujam, Art & Industry's Michelle Caputo and Shannon Hartman, and Jennie Church-Cooper of Haven Entertainment.

Since his "Daily Show" debut, Minhaj has also toured across the country with his one-man show "Homecoming King", which eventually landed at Netflix as a one-hour special.

Netflix also has a weekly program featuring the host of this year's correspondents' dinner Michelle Wolf, airing her show, "The Break With Michelle Wolf".
