Actor • Comedian • Host

Birth Date: September 23, 1985

Age: 38 years old

Birth Place: Aligarh, India

Renowned for drawing upon his own experiences as a first generation Indian-American, comedian Hasan Minhaj plied his trade on the stand-up circuit before breaking into TV with roles on sitcom "State of Georgia" (ABC Family, 2011) and "The Daily Show" (Comedy Central, 1996-).

Born in Sacramento County, CA in 1985, Minhaj studied political science at the University of California but became inspired to pursue a career in comedy after watching Chris Rock's special "Never Scared." After relocating to San Francisco, Minhaj opened for the likes of Gabriel Iglesias and Katt Williams, and his profile received a further boost following a move to Los Angeles when he made the final of NBC showcase Stand Up For Diversity.

In 2009, Minhaj made his television debut as a panellist on "Chelsea Lately" (E!, 2007-2014) and went onto guest on "The Wanda Sykes Show" (Fox, 2009-10), become a regular on hidden camera show "Disaster Date" (MTV, 2009-2011) and land his first major acting gig as physics grad student Seth in short-lived sitcom "State of Georgia" (ABC Family, 2011).

Following a brief stint as the presenter of Internet-based improv "Failosophy" (MTV, 2013), Minhaj made one-off appearances in "Arrested Development" (Fox, 2003-06) and "Getting On" (HBO, 2013-15) and voiced Radio Free Kyat's Rabi Ray Rana in video game phenomenon "Far Cry 4" (2014) before joining future host Trevor Noah as the final correspondents hired by Jon Stewart on "The Daily Show" (Comedy Central, 1996-).

Following the success of his standup special "Hasan Minhaj: Homecoming King" (Netflix 2017), Minhaj left "The Daily Show" in 2018. During this period, he also appeared in the films "Rough Night" (2017), "Most Likely to Murder" (2018) and "The Spy Who Dumped Me" (2018) before hosting his own series, "Patriot Act with Hasan Minhaj" (Netflix 2018- ).
