Hasan Minhaj comes through with a release date.
Back in March Netflix announced its historical plans of having the first Indian-American host (Hasan Minhaj) for an upcoming comedy show. "I've been a big fan of Hasan's for many years," Netflix's VP of content, Bela Bajaria, said. "He's a phenomenal writer with a distinct point of view [and] he is a brilliant performer, who is hilarious both onstage and off. And more importantly, he isn't afraid to share his thoughtful voice and unique perspective."
Now that time has passed and the streaming platform has been able to set the details in stone, we now have the official name of the weekly skit that will be dubbed Patriot Act, arriving in October. "Minhaj’s weekly comedy show will explore the modern cultural and political landscape with depth and sincerity," the official description reads. "Each week, Minhaj will bring his unique comedic voice and storytelling skill to investigate the larger trends shaping our fragmented world."
Thirty-two episodes have been ordered and Netflix has even dropped off a short and sweet teaser to really get you pumped.
