Minhaj at his Best
6 June 2017 | by halim-12043See all my reviews

I'm always optimistic about the future of stand-up comedy and what Minhaj has presented here with Homecoming King is nothing short of excellent. He delivers the emotional tone a stand-up of this sort deserves, but he also had the brilliance to make this extremely funny as well. I will be watching more of him in the near future if decides to continue this route. Well done to him.
