  • His show clearly has an emotional quality that resonates with his fans. Too bad, then, that he fails to bring sufficient focus and consistent comic observation to his subject matter.

  • "Homecoming King" seems unsurprising and premature... Appropriating from one world while trying to secure a place in another makes you wonder if he's really found his identity at all.

  • Homecoming King triumphs by transforming a seemingly intractable dilemma into thoroughly, hilariously human comedy.

  • The centrepiece for Minhaj is a truly astonishing and bittersweet tale about his prom that is alone worth the price of admission.

  • You don't come out here on Netflix with a comedy special that's part Ted Talk, part off-broadway play, part memoir, part nerd bars, and not change the game for the better.

  • This is a special you can watch from many different lenses, all of which will have you wanting to cheer for this young new voice that still has a bright future ahead of him.
