He’s also lent his voice to the animated films The Secret Life of Pets and Angry Birds.

HASAN MINHAJ: HOMECOMING KING is now streaming as a comedy special on Netflix. Recently, Hasan had the prestigious honor of hosting the annual White House Correspondents Dinner in Washington, DC on April 29th. Hasan recently appeared in the feature film Rough Night, alongside Scarlett Johansson and Kate McKinnon, and will be appearing in the film Most Likely to Murder, opposite Rachel Bloom and Adam Pally set to be released in 2018.
