Stand Up comedians all over the world have been at the forefront of providing news and information, or at least forming an opinion of things that are happening around us. Even in India, AIB was at the forefront of creating content that was critical of the Government. Now, Hasan Minhaj is giving a whole new meaning to talking back with his web series, Patriot Act.
Only two episodes have been revealed until now and they talk about issues that plague America but few people even know about it. The first episode is about college admission policies that seem to be preferential to White Americans, males and females. The second episode talks about the death of Jamal Khassogi, the journalist who was in the crosshairs of a Saudi Prince.
The show’s a veritable feast of different side jokes, deep set information and a sparkling revelation about the way the world works. Hasan Minhaj does a good job of giving information that very few people know, wrapping it up with a genuinely funny set of dialogues. The thirty-two episode stand u web series is bound to raise quite some eyebrows before it reaches its end game.
