A different kind of stand-up show (by throwntosafety)
This is more of a one-man show than your typical stand-up comedy special. Instead of 25 different bits, Hasan tells different stories about his life, both hilarious and heartbreaking. It wouldn't work if his storytelling ability wasn't so brilliant, but his timing and ability to connect with the audience at each point are spot on. Even if you didn't grow up with immigrant parents, anyone who has ever felt like an outsider will identify with his stories.
A Comedy for the "Others" in the White Suburb (by heathcliff1019)
Someone once said that satire occurs when one faces an absurdly unjust scenario that can't be changed but only laughed at. For those who find Homecoming King boring, the white suburbia must've been a perfectly normal place to be themselves. So congrats for not being able to enjoy the show.For those of us who have different skin color and are possibly immigrants, Hassan Minhaj told our similar experience with veracity and gut. Being the "others" has helped colored immigrants developed a third-person's perspective to look at ourselves, or specifically the ability to see <more>
ourselves as the exotic and foreign creatures from white people's perspective. If you don't find Hassan Funny, probably you've looked at yourselves in the first perspective your whole life.As a Chinese immigrant who went to high school in the suburbs, I'm drawn to Hassan's story even though I know little of Indian culture. After all, who doesn't have that "white princess or prince " complex?
VERY good! Hasan has a bright future. (by SteverB)
You would have to be EXTREMELY humor-challenged if you find this stand-up special boring and/or unfunny. Many, many comics mine their lives for stand- up material and Minhaj does so with a realness that you seldom hear. To be able to take an audience from side-splitting laughter to tears with just a turn of phrase is astounding and Minhaj does so with aplomb. For the record, I'm lily-white and have almost no experience with the Indian/Muslim community. Those here that only watched "2-3 minutes" and then shut it off, you do yourself a disservice by not allowing different views <more>
than your own to enter your heads. Don't miss this!
The authentic American-Indian family, without the accent. (by talhabb)
This comedy special is Hassan's best work by far. The use of the screen behind him to aid in his jokes was helpful, and his storytelling is interesting. I can definitely see how this would not be as funny for those that are not South Asian or have limited exposure to this community, but you have to view this from a different lens to appreciate it's comedic humor. For South Asian-Americans, it is a validation that their stories are part of the American fabric. For those not from this community, take this comedy act as an educational tour in the intricacies of living a dual life as an <more>
American born immigrant child. It doesn't rely on the classic "Apu-dad Indian accent" humor that Russell Peters is well known for. It is simply a story, and one that is told excellently. By the end of it, maybe you'll see that his goal isn't necessarily to Americanize his experience, but to share it as authentically as possible. It is up to the viewer to take the humor as it is, and to perhaps see comedy from a new lens.
Loved it! It was innovative, funny, and personal. The humor and the stories were heart felt and I loved his use of pictures in the background to illustrate his stories. One of the best comedy shows I've seen in a while. I love humor that comes from real life stories. Its more relatable and hysterical. Enjoyed every minute of it.
Starts slow, but funny overall (by farwa-56374)
The start of the show was slow, and had it not been for a friend's fierce recommendation, I would've stopped watching it after 10 minutes. But the slow start becomes irrelevant as the show progresses because it-is-funny.I understand that it's a little harder to appreciate his comedy if you're not of a South Asian background, as many of his jokes were, in fact, catered towards the South Asian audience. But there's bits and pieces for everyone, and it was simply hilarious overall.Not a waste of your time for sure.
hilarious and soul-baring (by tsimshotsui)
Hasan Minhaj: Homecoming King is an hour and fourteen minutes well worth spending. One second you're laughing so hard — the kind of laugh that's from your gut — and the next he hits you with stuff that will make your chest and/or eyes hurt. Certain truths are laid out and laid bare, a lot of which I suspect not everyone would be comfortable with but that's exactly the point. He shares a good portion of his life in such hilarious and engaging ways. You might find yourself trying to look for someone on facebook right after. My only criticisms are *spoilers* I don't quite buy <more>
that a certain person is completely OK I need some sort of history , interracial marriage does not fix racism just like that, and can Hasan say that word?
This isn't a regular standup, it's more an autobiographical sociopolitical commentary with humour sprinkled in. Hasan is an excellent and powerful story teller and he really paints out different life experiences and weaves them beautifully with sharp social commentary. I'm sure a lot of immigrants and especially South Asians might be able to relate to it. He's a good comedian too and the bit is definitely funny but it was definitely more commentary than humour and he doesn't quite have the Dave Chapelle flair of making the set as funny as it is powerful. And imo I think he <more>
mischaracterizes Bill Maher and the Ben Affleck fiasco but still a very good set overall.
