About Kumail Nanjiani

You probably recognize Kumail Nanjiani from HBO’s Silicon Valley and as one of the few Pakistani-American comedians on television today. While his stardom might have come with a hit HBO series, his true comedy chops lie in his daily tweets. Kumail shares his inner-most monologues with his bounty of followers, expressing everything from disdain for certain Presidential candidates and sports fans to praising fellow comedians and sharing embarrassing high school stories and photos (with captions like, “I hope things make more sense now”). You can also catch him nerding-out on the two podcasts he hosts: The Indoor Kids and The X-Files Files.
