Hasan Minhaj is a comedian, actor, and writer in New York. He is a correspondent on the Emmy and Peabody award-winning program "The Daily Show with Trevor Noah." In April 2017, he delivered a comedic speech at the White House Correspondents' Dinner, addressing the "elephant not in the room" and stressing the importance of free speech and a free press.

His critically acclaimed one man show "Homecoming King" returned Off-Broadway after a sold-out run in 2015, later debuting on Netflix in 2017. A 2014 Just For Laughs "New Face", Minhaj was selected by the Sundance Institute to develop his solo show and feature film at the prestigious New Frontier Storytelling Lab.

A featured storyteller for The Moth, his work has garnered acclaim in film, web, and television. He hosted the documentary special "Stand Up Planet" produced by The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

He has been seen on a variety of other television programs including "Arrested Development" on Netflix, HBO’s "Getting On," and "@Midnight" on Comedy Central.

In August 2018, Minhaj left "Daily Show" to focus on a weekly comedy show, "Patriot Act with Hasan Minhaj." The following year, Minhaj was listed among TIME's 100 most influential people in the world.
