Tablet Mag: ‘Patriot Act with Hasan Minhaj’

By Elazar Abrahams

This past summer, I had the pleasure of interning at Tablet, a popular Jewish-interest online magazine. The experience gave me incredible opportunities to hone my journalism skills. I also learned the inside workings of a real media outlet. It was so much fun, and being that TV and City is on a bit of a hiatus while I’m abroad, every so often I’ll be sharing my entertainment-related pieces from Tablet here. Enjoy!

Back in late October, Netflix launched Patriot Act with Hasan Minhaj, a political comedy talk show hosted by the Daily Show alum. After trying and failing multiple times to get a late night style program off the ground (Chelsea Handler, Joel McHale, Michelle Wolf, and even David Letterman couldn’t pull it off), the streaming service has finally cracked the code to the format. I look forward to a new episode of Patriot Act every Sunday!
