  1. Its ironic, if not for the Islam mess, no one would give a damn about this guy. Its amazing how many Muslims rise to frame due to this. If only liberals were bending over backwards so they could pat themselves on the back during the Japanese internment huh?

  2. Stephen was intimidated by Hassan, reminded me of a Friends episode with Joey as the teacher and his student, no wonder Colbert cut it short.

  3. Why did Stephen Colbert cut Hasan Minhaj off when things were getting interesting. I would have like to hear about his experience in Alabama and also just listen to Hasan Minjhaj narrate funny incidences.

  4. Hasan is literally never boring. I haven't seen every interview of him, or all his work, but in everything I have seen, he's just consistently charismatic, funny, and entertaining. What a guy.

  5. “They’re gonna ban Hogwarts” and that House of Slytherin joke at the WHCD… blimey 🧙🏻‍♂️

  6. Hassan forgot to mention

    Not Sure if Mohamed Ali died before Colbert started his late night show.

  7. Am I the only who came here because they saw him wearing the Ox Blood Coloured Suit he told Tan would make him look like a "Brown Arsenio" LOVE IT! Tan was right it would suit him. I know it's an old clip but He looks so good in the red suit!

  8. I just can't comprehend how amazing this interview is and I just keep coming back to it. Hasan and Colbert have such a chemistry. 😭🌸

  9. Welcome to the comments section. Hope you enjoyed watching this video. Here you will read random people talking about different parts of the video out of which you will derive some amusement. You will then have a random topic pop up in your head and you will search for that on youtube. Watch video, read comments – cycle continues. It is now 3 am.

  10. Hasan Minaj is a bigot who is very selective about facts. Liberalism is about the truth but today the so called liberal voices are selective and appeasing, no wonder the far right are on the rise.

  11. 😂 now I keep correcting anyone who mispronounces Minhaj as minaj….. me: minnnnhhaj – at home alone. 😂🙄
