The absurdity of modern live is cannon fodder for Hasan Minhaj. He does it very well. He doesn't have to try to be funny, he sees what is inherently funny and presents it to the audience. Incredulity would capture his approach and he's very good at it.

Speak Truth to Power and Wealth is his mission, and do some educating of the public along the way.
