'Patriot Act with Hasan Minhaj': Queer Eye's Tan France styles comedian for new weekly Netflix show
Minhaj’s weekly comedy show will explore the modern cultural and political landscape with depth and sincerity
It's time for a makeover, Hasan Minhaj is getting himself ready to host 'Patriot Act with Hasan Minhaj' a new weekly variety show on Netflix for which he needs to take his style up a notch. So he decided to call Queer Eye's very own Tan France.
In a video, recently uploaded by Netflix, Minhaj gets help from the style specialist just ahead of the premiere of his comedy show on Sunday. 'Patriot Act with Hasan Minhaj' will debut on Netflix October 28. Netflix has committed to an unprecedented 32-episode order, making Minhaj the first Indian-American host of a weekly comedy show.
Minhaj’s weekly comedy show will explore the modern cultural and political landscape with depth and sincerity. Each week, Minhaj will bring his unique comedic voice and storytelling skills to investigate the larger trends shaping our fragmented world.
Last year, Minhaj earned amazing reviews for his one-hour Netflix comedy special 'Hasan Minhaj: Homecoming King' that earned him a 2018 Peabody Award, and for his performance hosting the 2017 White House Correspondents' Dinner.
A first-generation American, Minhaj joined 'The Daily Show with Jon Stewart', where he was Stewart’s last hire, in November 2014 as a correspondent and continued on in that role after Trevor Noah took over as host the following year. In addition, Minhaj and his sketch comedy quartet, Goatface, will bring their wide-ranging brand of humor to Comedy Central for a one-hour special later this year.
