Minhaj jumped on Twitter to reminisce about the moment in 2015 when former host Jon Stewart told him he was going to be on the show.
4 years ago Jon Stewart took a chance and hired me on @thedailyshow. My ride or die @jenflanz recorded the moment he said “See you Monday”. It changed my career, and it changed my family’s life forever. I’ll never forget what they did for me ?? pic.twitter.com/whKJU9u9VG— Hasan Minhaj (@hasanminhaj) August 17, 2018
Minhaj’s next venture is “Patriot Act,” for Netflix. The weekly politics and pop culture talk show will debut on October 28, according to Deadline. He will be the first South Asian-American to host a comedy talk show.
