Acclaimed comedian Hasan Minhaj will be the featured speaker at the last IGNITE Real Talks event of the semester taking place on Apr. 12 at the Humber College North Campus.
This event will begin at 12 p.m. in the Student Centre, opening with a half-hour talk from Mr. Minhaj, followed by a question and answer session, with tickets available via the IGNITE event page.
Students will be given the opportunity to attend a meet and greet with Minhaj after the talk, as there will be 30 minutes allotted for a meet and greet.
Minhaj is a correspondent on the Daily Show that airs on Comedy Central.
Along with being a comedian, he is also an actor, host and a writer.
He received a great amount of attention in early 2017 after hosting the annual White House Correspondents’ Dinner.
Currently, Minhaj has his own comedy special, Homecoming King, that can be found on Netflix.
He has also starred in Rough Night alongside Scarlett Johansson and Kate McKinnon.
There are limited amount of wristbands available for the meet and greet, as it is a first-come, first-serve basis.
IGNITE advises attendees to come early to receive these wristbands, as doors open at 11 a.m. at the KX Building.
This free event is open to both Humber and University of Guelph-Humber students.
Student identification or timetable is required upon entry, along with a ticket.
