Patriot Act with Hasan Minhaj

netflix patriot act with hasan minhaj

When I first heard that Hasan Minhaj was leaving The Daily Show to have his own show, I wasn’t that interested. I liked him then, but not that much. Oh, how wrong I have been. Patriot Act with Hasan Minhaj is my favourite thing on Netflix ever.

He studied political science at university then became a comedian. The result? A show that is so informative but at the same time so very funny.

I love each and every episode too much to pick a favourite, but the one I feel I’ve learned the most is the one on Saudi Arabia. I find Middle Eastern politics infatuating. Brutal, but fascinating. I knew that Yemen was going through a war right now, but I didn’t know the background, and Minhaj explained it in less than one minute.

Another episode I found fascinating is Supreme. I was never one to care much about “hype”, so I didn’t think I was going to get much out of that episode. I was wrong, again. What I thought was just a overhyped fashion brand was deeply, deeply entangled with politics.

Patriot Act with Hasan Minhaj is a Netflix show, but they put episodes on Youtube. I highly recommend everyone to watch it.
