#NowWatching: Hasan Minhaj - Homecoming King

#NowWatching: Hasan Minhaj - Homecoming King

This is an emotional roller coaster of a set - I don't think I've laughed and cried so many times in the space of 1 hour 12 minutes. I was exhausted after watching it, but in the good way that you get after engaging so fully with something.

Just when you think there's no way he can make being dissed on prom night by his date's racist parents funny, he does. But not before you've got tears in your eyes for the little boy that was, and for all those who face racism in so many different ways every day.

That it's smart is a given, but the fact that he deals with so many difficult issues with sensitivity, and without mincing his words - it's a rare thing to see. Self-deprecating humor forms part of the repertoire of a number of comedians, but this level of introspection - where you were faced with a situation and were found wanting - it's not something any one really likes to discuss much less shout it out to the world. It's full of stories of lessons learnt without being preachy.

It's a good guy with a good heart talking about making the world a better place, and being funny while doing it. I can definitely get behind that.
