Podcast Ep 29: Hasan Minhaj On The American Dream Tax
Hasan Minhaj is a comedian, our favorite Daily Show correspondent, and the creator and star of his one-man show, “Homecoming King,” which tells the story of New Brown America. He came to our studios to talk guilt, the American Dream, hip hop, his infamous Congressional mic drop, biryani rice terrorism, and the greatness of Zayn Malik. Oh, and that new Mash-Up Avengers squad we’re forming.

Hasan Minhaj On Living Your Best Life
Younger artists sometimes ask me for advice, and in addition to all the usual stuff, like write from your heart, and work really hard, I tell them: Have the audacity to be Zayn Malik. I’m gonna be the hottest dude in One Direction. I’m gonna leave and go solo. I’m gonna date the model. I’m gonna be that dude, and it doesn’t matter that my name is Zayn Malik. He’s just walking in his greatness!
Hip Hop. It’s What Gets Us Through.
