And wowww… How about Killer Kill From Adamsville is getting his Netflix and no-chill on, too! Killer Mike will have a six-part mini-series that is like… well… Hasan Minhaj meeting Sacha Baron Cohen at a WTF rally with Dr. Umar Johnson as the featured speaker.

“In six episodes, we explore the human condition using nontraditional approaches. Not everyone will agree with my methods (and some of what we’re putting out is f**king crazy), but this show is about embracing your freedom to challenge societal expectations and conformity. This show is as if an anarchist determined the status quo.”

Be ready to chuckle and be challenged, again, by a funny and thought-provoking comedy lecture by ‘Professor’ Hasan Minhaj.

On the latest Patriot Act, Hasan Minhaj dissects Amazon.com and the arguably questionable business practices it has used to grow from an e-bookstore into a powerful, multi-faceted corporation that controls a huge chunk of the online cloud. Hasan also examines whether our current antitrust laws might need an overhaul for the digital age.

Politics: Hasan Minhaj On ‘Oil’ (Video)

YES! I am now an official fan and follower of Hasan Minhaj’s videos. Ah, Netflix… you had me with the Marvel content… but then you keep blessing with brilliance like this #PatriotAct

On the latest Patriot Act, Hasan Minhaj analyzes how America became the number one producer of oil in the world. Hasan examines how the fossil fuel industry and government, through its goal of “energy dominance,” are pushing for greater oil production and what that could mean for the environment.

This ‘Oil’ standup/lecture is an instant classic! As funny and provocative as Minhaj always is.

Man oh, man… This isn’t even art imitating life, rather a [Netflix] video series reporting it.

Well, these stories – teased in the episode trailer above – should not surprise you. The first episode is on Volkswagen… supposed to mean the “People’s Car” in German… yeah, but which “people” (probably ‘The 1%’) is it really ‘for’?
