Hasan Minhaj Uses Timothée Chalamet’s Name at Starbucks

Hasan Minhaj Uses Timothée Chalamet’s Name at Starbucks


It’s so nice to meet you. I’m a huge fan. Thank you. I’m a huge fan of you. Thank you. And it’s Hasan Minhaj. No. Yes. No. Really? Well, my name is Hasan Minhaj. Oh. I want to do this. I actually want to do this
on national television. Good, please, because
everyone that says your name says Hasan Minhaj. Yeah, but the real
way you pronounce it, and this is a big deal
because my parents are here, it’s Hasan Minhaj. And people always
mispronounce it. They’re always like,
Hasseen Minaja, Hussein. I’m so sorry, I
can’t pronounce it. Meet my son, Higsby
Withherthrottle III. And I’m like– how do you
not pronounce– try it. All right, Hassin Menish. No, that’s not– No, no. I– look, I appreciate
people trying. I was actually, I was
doing CNN, which is like– it’s an international
drama show where nine people yell at each other. And the host brought me out. And he was like he was
trying really hard, he was like breathing heavily. And he was just like, give
it up for Hossin Meanhaj. It was like he was
casting a spell on me. And I’m just like,
you don’t have to. Say it again, so that
people hear it again. Hasan Minhaj. Hasan Minhaj. Yes, that’s it. Hasan. Yes. Hasan. Look, when I first
kind of, you know, started doing comedy,
people, like, you should change your name. And I’m like, I’m not
going to change my name. If you can pronounce
Ansel Elgort, you can pronounce Hasan Minhaj. There’s an actor just
named Ansel Elgort and we all just walk around
pronouncing it, completely normally. Yeah, well, DeGeneres was hard
for people to get for a while. What did they do? DeGeneres or
Degenerate or like, you know, lots and–
lots of other things. And you stayed strong. Yeah, and now it’s DeGeneres. Yeah. But Hasan Minhaj. Yeah. Minhaj. Minhaj. So the emphasis is on the H. Yes. And what do they
do at Starbucks? What do they– At Starbucks, I just go
by Timothée Chalamet. That’s good. I just keep it simple. Yeah, and they
usually do it right. With like, they’re like
Timothée with two Es? And I’m like, yeah, that’s me. Oh wow. Wow, girls must freak
out when they see you. Yeah. They’re kind of disappointed. So you say your parents
are in the audience. Yeah. Mom and Dad are right there. Hi Mom and dad. That’s Najme and Seema. Hi, Najme and Seema! And they’re huge fans
of the show, Ellen. Oh, thank you. My mom actually wants me to
change the format of my show so it’s more like Ellen. I see. No, I have my show. He can have his show. His show is very
different than mine. And it’s good. And that’s what I like about it. It’s a whole different format. There’s a lot more screens
and it’s less happy, But– No. I mean we cover
really heavy things. You do. Yeah. It’s really smart. You have to be super smart to
understand and follow along. But wait, before we get to that. So when did you
start in stand-up and how supportive were they? Well, I would actually– Mom, you know this, I would–
we had our little secret. I was in college. And I would say, hey,
I’m going to the library. And then I would take the Camry,
and my mom would tell Dad, hey, he’s going to the library. And so we live in Davis. And I would drive to the
San Francisco Punch Line, so it was about an hour. Yeah. And one of these nights when
I was going to the library, I ended up crashing the car in
Vallejo, which is on the way. And I had to call home. And Mom, remember you
passed the phone to Dad. And you’re like, I can’t– I can’t cover for you anymore. And so I had my dad
come to Vallejo. And it was raining and
it was super dramatic. And he was like, this is really
far for the library, huh, son? And I just had this moment
where I was like, Dad, I’m a stand-up comedian. And he was like,
why couldn’t you be smoking weed like
everyone else in college. And that’s when I found out that
Najme Minhaj was 420-friendly. So that’s cool Uh-huh, but they must–
do they go see you a lot? Did they support you
when you started out? No, they didn’t. Remember, I was
going to the library. I know! Yeah. But now they do. Now they’re cool. As long as I’m doing Ellen, Mom
was like, I can call in sick. Yeah. All right, so now you’re
doing this show, which I loved your stand-up special too. I thought that
that was brilliant. Thank you. So tell everybody
what the show is. Because it’s political and funny
and a great take on everything. Yeah, we’ll do
like, we’ll do sort of one big comedic investigative
report on say, global warming, or you know, student loan debt. Just real fun,
interesting, stuff that people want to watch. All right. But coming from you, which makes
it really easier to digest. Yeah. It’s still great,
but funny, too. Yeah, but I think
people would rather watch like a
three-year-old come out and try French fries
for the first time. Well. Look the way you guys responded
to the French fry thing, we need more of
that on the show. Yeah, I know. I know. I say all the time
we’re working too hard. We have to have a kid
with a French fry. That’s all you really need. Yeah. It’s called Patriot Act, it’s
currently streaming on Netflix. We’ll be right back. Hi, I’m Andy. Ellen asked me to remind you
to subscribe to her channel, so you can see more
awesome videos, like videos of me getting scared or
saying embarrassing things, like ball-peen hammer. And also some videos of
Ellen and other celebrities, if you’re into
that sort of thing. [ELLEN SHOUTS BEHIND ANDY]

  50. Not Nicki Minaj…Hasan Minhaj…not Hussein..

  51. Hasan Minhaj sound like Nicky Minaj😄😄

  52. TWO IDIOTS AND A YOUTUBE

  53. At the end of that… tell me it wasn't awkward? I'm not a fan of either of them… so.. is it just me.. or was that some shade there? It starts at 4:26 and you can see the ego ooze out of Hassan at 4:29? When he says.. "that's all you really need" lol she was clearly bothered by it.. and that look with his tongue out.. is like he was tasting success lol. This the most entertaining thing from Ellen show yet!

  54. His eyes are a bit bigger than a normal

    Who else notised it too

  55. Do Gaberal Iglessia

  56. Who's this guy that i've been sleeping on ? He's so funny

  57. If you watch the episode where he talks about Supreme (it’s the only one I’ve ever seen) he pronounces his name exactly like Ellen did when he introduces himself at the beginning. I’m confused.

  58. Well my name is Hassna, huhsna?

  59. I love that ending

  60. So irritating when people with random hard names gets issues when people mispronounse it

  61. Huh, you think your name is hard ? Wait till when even Indians can't pronounce your name.

  62. Slayed it Hasan😊

  63. Watch Patriot Act by Hasan Minhaj, Facts about Modi & Indian Hindu mentality Thank me Later.
    Just when i thought i couldn't love this guy even more, 🙂

  64. its logical to say his name wrong, phonetically it isn't how it is said in English. Hasan isn't pronounced Hasen. Minhaj is ok, that can be a few different ways, but no one look at Hasan and says "Hasen", usually they might say Ha-san, or Ha-saan.

  65. is it like nicki MINAJ?

  66. I came for Hasan but that advertisement was entertaining lol

  67. I always wonder Ellen surname as Ellen The Generous

  68. aww something about Ellen is so adorable I can’t explain

  69. Me : Hasan .

    Others : Hashtag ?

  70. You don’t have to be super smart to get the patriot act but you do have to care.

  71. Man i can’t get enough of this guy

  72. If his name is pronounced Husin it should be spelt Husin…but no its Hasan so he shouldn't be uptight about ppl misprounouncing it.
    Atleast he pronounces the surname like it is spelt.

  73. And his name is Najmi Minhaj.

  74. Me : Husayn .

    They : what you sayn ?

  75. Some people used to call me terrorist

  76. Ellen is convinced enough of her happiness. I believe…🤣😃😃😃😜😍

  77. hes pakistani right?

  78. The “h” is actually pretty easy for Germans
    he should cOME TO GERMANY

  79. Am i the first person to point out that his mom looks somewhat close to Priyanka Chopra's mom?

  80. I love how they talk about correct pronunciation and they he says "Timothy Chalamet" 😀

  81. The man. The legend. The ruthless Indian dad, NAJME MINHAJ

  82. I actually used to have a classmate called Hasan

  83. On his show, he's great, but on Ellen's show…..he's talking alone…

  84. when he said “HASAN MINHAJ, it was like he was casting a spell on me” i forreal spit out my hot chocolate

  85. HA-sen min-HAJ
    It's a good name, it sounds soft but strong

  86. His name is short. Too Easy to say on the first time. I don't know what is the fuss on it. Or maybe I am Asian. Hahaha…

  87. Omg his parents look just like mine. They even got their hair dyed with Henna 😩😂

  88. dang

  89. He's still a desi indian at heart..😁
