Twitter's loving Hasan Minhaj's new comedy special on Netflix – Indian Link
Five years after releasing his successful Netflix comedy special Homecoming, comedian Hasan Minhaj is back with another fun offering.
In The King’s Jester released this week, he tackles everything from his family’s initial difficulties in conceiving a child and his sudden rise to fame in the last few years, to revealing that he had been sent anthrax in the mail, and the lesser-known inspiration behind his popular Netflix series The Patriot Act.
Best comedy hour I’ve seen in years. So honest, and then hilarious. https://t.co/TI0n3jmUlU

His weekly series didn’t always land, but nearly every minute of Hasan Minhaj’s two specials are terrific. Hilarious, thought provoking, even sentimental. The best kind of story telling. Strong recommend. ✨ Netflix. pic.twitter.com/Q7cFBvRBQA

. @hasanminhaj does it again!
I thought I’ll never see a better stand-up than #hasanminhaj‘s “Homecoming King”, but he comes and tops it with relative ease. Even after an hour, you wish it could go on some more.@netflix #Netflix #TheKingsJester pic.twitter.com/Uffs7WzaYx

HASAN MINHAJ: THE KING’S JESTER on Netflix is a triumph. Minhaj mixes the deeply personal with the profoundly hilarious in a storytelling masterclass. This @hasanminhaj comedy special is not to be missed.

reminder that if you’ve not yet watched Hasan Minhaj’s King Jester special on Netflix, you really really should

Very much appreciate @hasanminhaj talking about male fertility issues and the difficulty of conceiving so openly in #TheKingsJester. It’s not often that South Asian men admit if the “problem” is with them.
And yeah, I cried real tears watching that part.

@hasanminhaj latest special hit it out the park again. To have someone your age chronicle the world you live in as a south asian Muslim in the era of war on terror is just so incredible. Also to parody Gollum like clout and influencer culture and Saudi authoritarianism. Too good

Watched the Hasan Minhaj Special and belief got stronger that vulnerability in any art form is extremely important. As your narrative becomes more and more personal, the emotion becomes more and more universal.

Originally released in October 2018, spanning 40 episodes and six seasons, the show was massively popular for its unconventional topics, infographics and research, and humorous delivery. It even won an Emmy for Outstanding Motion Design in 2019.
Calls for a new season of The Patriot Act have returned in the last week, though Minhaj has remained mum on the matter.
Hasan Minhaj’s new special “The King’s Jester” is an hour long pitch to bring the Patriot Act back and it’s great. Bring it back! Or give him The Daily Show. Just give the man a show so he can do his powerpoint comedy in peace.

We just watched Hasan Minhaj’s new special. HATED it. I was a fan of Patriot Act, where some real righteous justice happened. But this special is pure narcissism, and worse, it is pretending to be about getting beyond narcissism, while constantly pandering for standing ovations.
