Hasan Minhaj: Homecoming King is the most creative and memorable stand-up special that I've seen in years. With the aid of an elaborate, dynamic backdrop that punctuates his narrative with TED Talk-esque visuals, Hasan weaves together several deeply personal stories of his experience growing up as a second-generation American. Minhaj's delivery is fast-paced and confident, and nearly all of his jokes landed for me (including his assertion that he was "very emo" as a teenager, like "a little Drake"), but what stood out the most was his willingness to explore painful moments in his childhood related to the racism he and his family experienced and a sense that he didn't fully belong. It's not an exaggeration to say that I was on the verge of tears a couple of times while watching this. Highly, highly recommended.
