This Pakistani American Comedian, Kumail Nanjiani Is Just Killing The Show “Saturday Night Live”…
The Karachi-born, Kumail Najiani Pakistani American, is the hot new sensation of the internet. Comedian, actor, writer, and podcast host is best known for his comical style for poking stereotypes. These days he is ruling on internet and mainstream media with his movie ‘The Big Sick’.
Kumail Nanjiani is the first Pakistani to host the famous show “Saturday Night Live” and he nailed it…
Kumail Nanjiani appeared on the show “Saturday Night Live” as he was the first Pakistani to debut on one of the famous show. He engaged live audience very perfectly by discussing and highlighting the some stereotypes faced by Muslims while living abroad. And he even discussed how Sikhs are misinterpreted as Muslims and in a comical style he tackled Islamophobia.
“A guy said [about The Big Sick], ‘I watched the whole movie. I just don’t like race mixing.’ First of all, nobody good ever uses the phrase ‘race mixing’. Even if someone was like, ‘I’m pro-race mixing’, I’d be like, ‘Why are you talking like that? Are you an undercover KKK… dragon?!”
In his monologue he stated, “A lot of people were like, ‘Go back to India,’” and addressing to audience he said, “I’ve never been to India. Are you just hoping I’ll have an awesome vacation soon?”
“My problem with most racism is the inaccuracy,” he mentioned, “I’m like, ‘DO the research. Put in the work. You will see the benefits.”
“I’ll give you an example. If someone yells at me, ‘Go back to India’, I’ll be like, ‘That guy’s an idiot’. If someone was like, ‘Go back to Pakistan, which was part of India until 1947 and is now home to the world’s oldest salt mine’, I’d be like, ‘This guy seems to know what he’s talking about. I’ll pack my bags.”
And that’s how internet reacted to his show..
