For most teenagers, prom is a big deal with a lot of build-up. Asking someone to the big dance comes with enough hurdles as it is, so Hasan Minhaj (The Daily Show) was convinced that his strict Indian father and his family's cultural quirks would ruin any shot he might have at finding someone to slow dance with on prom night. On this episode of Hold On, host Eugene Mirman takes Hasan back to high school to find out if he managed to score his dream date for the big night.

In each episode of the Audible Comedy series Hold On, host Eugene Mirman (Bob's Burgers, The Flight of the Conchords) pauses the funny stories of comedians and performers to get the skinny behind the story. Featured and future guests include: Jim Gaffigan, "Weird Al" Yankovic, Lisa Lampanelli, Mike Birbiglia, Reggie Watts, Kumail Nanjiani, Andy Richter, Hasan Minhaj, John Mulaney, and more!
