The trailblazing Pakistan-born comedian, writer and actor — one of the few brown men ever to play a lead in an American movie — reflects on coming to America at 18, falling in love with stand-up and making the most emotionally vulnerable period in his life the center of a movie that now has grossed more than $50 million worldwide and is the second best-reviewed release of 2017 so far.

But first: THR's editorial director Matthew Belloni joins Scott to discuss the 42nd Toronto International Film Festival.

Credits: Hosted by Scott Feinberg, recorded by Eric Taylor and produced by Matthew Whitehurst.
