Hasan Minhaj: Homecoming King (Netflix)




Hasan Minhaj: Homecoming King
 2017 | Netflix, Art & Industry

Hasan Minhaj delivers much more than a hilarious stand-up comedy special. “Homecoming King” is a deeply personal memoir—part Richard Pryor, part Spaulding Gray—that covers the struggles of the immigrant experience, encounters with stereotypes and raced expectations, and intergenerational acceptance, while using comedy to invite empathy, caring, and understanding.
