Interview: Hasan Minhaj Talks ‘The King’s Jester’, How He Crafts His Material & More
Comedian Hasan Minhaj has returned to Netflix next month with his latest standup special titled Hasan Minhaj: The King’s Jester, which is set to premiere worldwide on October 4 on Netflix.
The King’s Jester is the second stand-up comedy special that Minhaj has produced and starred in for Netflix. His latest special shares his thoughts on fertility, fatherhood, and freedom of speech. If you haven’t watched it yet, I highly recommend it!
During my chat with the comedian, Minhaj spoke about how he approached crafting his new special and making it different from specials we’ve seen from other comedians. Minhaj also spoke about how stage design is something he is passionate about because it helps elevate the special in multiple ways.
Since Minhaj has a family now, he spoke about how he picks his topics for the future. Of course, as Minhaj is no stranger to the comic book world with his work as the Riddler on the Batman Unburied audio drama series podcast, he briefly spoke about what character he would like to play in the DC universe.
