The Indian American Comedian Hasan Minhaj doesn’t necessarily require any kind of separate introduction. This man has not just prepared a space for himself out in the entertainment world but has also successfully shone through the process in a very effective way. This unstoppable gush of fresh air has again managed to bag the prestigious Peabody Award second time in a row.
Known for his impeccable way with words and for being the “Patriot Host”, this Indo-American comedian just bagged the prestigious Peabody award in the entertainment category twice in a row. Even last year, Minhaj won the award in the same category for his Netflix special show, “Homecoming King.”
This time around, in the Peabody award in 2019, Minhaj bagged the award for his Netflix show, “Patriot Act with Hasan Minhaj.” This string of awards have time and time highlighted the importance of honoring the shows which are not just powerful and enlightening but come along with a invigorating plot line and such in the radio and the digital media.
According to the jurors of the Peabody away, Minhaj has successfully embodied and created a perfect model that would help engage the millennial generation into the prospects of politics and public life. The combination of his high octane energy, this Indian American and Muslim late night host does bring in a breathe of voice to the political entertainment television.
Tacking on to the same, the jurors further clarified stating that he is quite bold and fearless to be taking on Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman just weeks after the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.
While this artist is known to present his audience with a cutting edge and amazing bout of laughter, he also does focus on bringing forth better light onto the important topics of concern that everyone needs to be aware of – be it political, culture or even related to religion. They further added that he is never afraid of speaking his mind out about the topics that need more focus and knowledge.
Winning the Peabody award second time in a row is definitely an amazing achievement for Hasan Minhaj addressing the prospects of glory he has brought along for all the Indians across the world. The winners of the Peabody award are going to be celebrated at a red carpet event on May 18 at Cipriani Wall Street in New York where Ronan Farrow is going to be the host.
