Hasan Minhaj’s Goatface finally gets their due
Former The Daily Show correspondent turned Patriot Act host Hasan Minhaj is best known for his solo projects, but back in 2011 he was spending a lot of time creating comedy sketches with the YouTube group Goatface. Consisting of Minhaj, Aristotle Athiras, Asif Ali, and Fahim Anwar, Goatface regularly created hilarious sketches about politics, the immigrant experience in the United States and other related subjects. On Tuesday, Comedy Central premiered the group’s first television special.
