From his role on Comedy Central’s The Daily Show with Trevor Noah and his performance at the 2017 White House Correspondents’ Dinner to his Netflix stand up comedy special, Hasan Minhaj: Homecoming King, comedian Hasan Minhaj has taken the world by storm.


Tonight, he’s ready to take on Dallas.


Minhaj will be performing a stand-up comedy show tonight from 7-9 p.m. at the McFarlin Memorial Auditorium on the SMU campus.


“I remember when I first learned about Minhaj on Netflix…his comedy really related to my culture,” said Coppell High School senior Surya Ramakrishnan, who is planning on attending. “He is knee-slapping hilarious.”


The event is hosted by the Muslim Students Association (MSA), an organization that strives to unite the Islamic population at SMU while serving their community and celebrating their religion.


Although admission is free for both SMU and non-SMU students, space is limited and seats will be available on a first come, first serve basis as soon as the doors open at 6 p.m.


Audience members will also have the opportunity to meet Minhaj through a raffle contest. In order to participate, attendees can sign a raffle ticket with their name and phone number at the crossing near the Hughes-Trigg Student Center prior to the show.
