    Aside of some interesting insights, Hasan Minhaj is a racist Indian/Asian with superiority complex spewing hate about white people.

    Yet another actor to throw a hat into the already overcrowded political talk show arena. No depth to the show or any ounce of political insight gleamed here. Just awful and not funny to anyone other than his family or friends.

    In the second episode, he refers to his show jokingly as “a woke TED Talk” and that gets it pretty right, except this woke TED Talk is not only informative and incisive, but funny.

    Patriot Act, an appealing comedy-talk show hybrid from longtime collaborators Hasan Minhaj and Prashanth Venkataramanujam, isn’t going to singlehandedly swing things Netflix’s way, but it is the streamer’s best offering yet in the genre. ... The result is an engrossing mix of deep dives, personal asides, and current events, all delivered with Minhaj’s winning aplomb.

    The result is bracing, funny, informative, and occasionally, like Last Week Tonight, a little dry. But it’s homework that you wanna do, even if you never forget that it’s ultimately an assignment. I don’t consider that description a knock on the show.
