When: Tuesday, September 27, 2016
Venue: Queen Elizabeth Theatre
The Vibe: Mixed crowd. Not sure why the Hasan Minhaj show over the weekend seemed to have more Indian fans. I think it might be because I was running late, so I mostly just saw other Indian people arriving Indian Standard Time?
Previously On: Dinesh on Silicon Valley, Keanu in Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates.
How Was It? I was surprised that things got pretty dirty — I loved it. It’s great when you find out that a comic is nothing like a character they’ve played on a series (Silicon Valley and Franklin & Bash) but someone more three dimensional and having lived different experiences.
Nanjiani called back living in Pakistan and discovery masturbation from a cousin (who thankfully, wasn’t the Dallas cousin who showed up). Audience call outs can go either way for a comic but for this night, it worked out well — thank you Max and Max’s dad.
Relatability Score: Solid. Nanjiani confirmed something that most men know to be true but don’t really want to think about. Our shoes are covered with so much urine.
