Minhaj won the title of the 'Best Comic Standing' competition of Wild 94.9 in 2008 which opened the doors of opportunities for him. He worked with Katt Williams, Pablo Francisco, and Gabriel Iglesias then. Later, he worked for Ning to write comedy. He also performed at NBC's 'Stand-up for Diversity' in 2009.
Soon, Minhaj began appearing at various series and shows including 'The State of Georgia', 'Disaster Date', 'Failosophy', 'Arrested Development, 'Getting On', 'Stand Up Planet', 'The Truth with Hasan Minhaj' and so on. Minhaj was also the voice behind Rabi Ray Rana in the Far Cry 4 video game. Minhaj's debut show 'Homecoming King' aired off-broadway in October 2015.

All of Minhaj's activities made him earn such a huge net worth. Since he is super active even today, we believe that his net worth will encounter a huge rise soon.
Although Minhaj hasn’t won any awards to date, he was nominated in 2015 for a Behind the Voice Actors Award for Best Vocal Ensemble for his voice-over in 'Far Cry 4.'
Minhaj is happily married to his college sweetheart Beena Patel, who is a management consultant.
They have been married since January 2015. As of now, they live together in New York City.
Apart from comedy, Minhaj is interested in playing basketball.
We cannot miss the fact that Minhaj is always dressed in his best, be it casual or formal. We must admit that he spends quite a sum on his expensive outfits.
Hasan Minhaj's life story is quite inspiring. If Minhaj continues to entertain people at the same pace, we totally believe that he will soon be counted as one of the top-earning comedians. We hope he finds more success in the coming days.
