  1. Hand movements are a big part of presentations…how can people not know this. There are classes and seminars on how to give a good engaging presentation with use of proper hand gestures. People who are good in public speaking and stage have more hand movements since they are more comfortable than others there and well ..know how to be on stage

  2. I think having hand movements are good to engage your audience. I feel touched that he did this segment. It feels like he actually listens to comments and is able to be creative and not defensive of internet comments in general. Love his show!

  3. lol i think it's less that your hands are animated and more that the rest of you isn't. it's like your body is a responsible adult discussing sobering topics that impact life as we know it on this planet, but your arms are remote controlled by a movie theater's Mortal Kombat arcade cabinet's joystick that regularly misfires. i love it don't get me wrong but it can be somewhat jarring if you're not used to it

  4. Use your hands lol it makes me think about how I speak publicly and need to use my hands to express myself

  5. I'm watching this after a really rough day at work. Thank you Hasan, I laughed from start to end 😁😁😁

  6. This bugged me at first, now I think it works for him. Great show, great info, I like how fast paced and energetic it all is. Glad Minhaj has come into his own, found his niche, and can laugh at himself. PS- I waved my hands like crazy writing this. Which is weird given that I'm typing and all.

  7. Lol. Reminds me of a Mitchell and Webb sketch… "And it was here, in these skies…"

  8. Noooooooooo… they are an integral part of your show and personality!!!!! Awesome show btw. Hugs from Serbia <3

  9. Hasan I'm super proud of your come up!! And guess what I am too an avid hand mover when I speak. Its a New York thing for sure !! I say f the haters and move those hands 😎😎😎

  10. Let me just tell you whoever did this little snippet intro on your YouTube videos that s*** is banging. We need a whole EDM song for that in the club!!!

  11. How could you possibly read every single comment !! You are amazing and so so humble .. I wish you success beyond your imagination..

  12. Hilarious! I never noticed your hand movements. They accentuate what you say, kind of like pictures in a book. It would be weird if you didn't use your hands.

  13. You can't be reading EVERY single comment online. Ok So Honestly, I should be studying for my final med school test in Sept which is 89 days away from now. I.ve been watching the show instead, I liked it since last year but I stopped watching Netflix coz it was just a huge distraction. And now I'm ranting just procrastinating…. So… YEah…. Pediatrics… here I go ?—-I mean the point here, is the show is amazing, your team must be fkng amazing, the graphics, WOW fkng WOOOOOOW, you're sexy as hell and I'm glad Hollywood has not snatched you up yet ( for some meaningless but superfamous movie). Can't wait for you to write and star in a movie someday.

  14. Good spirit. But yeah, it's annoying and distracting to me. Just, do some magic while you're waving them mitts. It's like watching a coked up mime making a police report in sign language.

  15. I like the hand movements, just sometimes it’s too much… so don’t get rid of it, just do it a little less

  16. Also I love how you reply to us or turn even negative comments (not this one because I think it was fans in most cases just giving constructive feedback) but other comments you make funny. Give you more content, makes you even more relatable; love love love all your content….I’m hooked.

  17. because of the hands i just quit watch your show. it is anoing how you underline every statment with the hands looking like a puppet jumping around

  18. I would love to see Hasan talk abou the plastic straw situation. About how people are adamant about banning plastic straws, because of the sea pollution. But no one talks about how straws are only 0.025% of sea pollution, and fishing nets for example are 50% and no one talks about those. And these people also ignore the fact that plastic straws are essential for some disabled people to eat and, without it, they could choke and die while feeding themselves. I just think this topic went viral on social media, but I feel the good intentions are being misguided, attacking individual instead of, say, big corporations that don't have good ways of discarding their residues.

    Edit: FORGET ABOUT PLASTIC STRAWS! TALK ABOUT THE AMAZON FOREST AND HOW IT HAS VEEN BURNING FOR DAYS AND THE GOVERNMENT DOES NOTHING! (I'm Brazilian and it cut me deep in the heart)

  19. Moving your hands along with your words actually show that you know the facts with your mouth and your hands. The hands are the first thing we see when we meet a human being. That's because in cave man times, cave men would see if the other were friend or foe by looking at what they were holding.

  20. Why would anyone have a problem with Hasan's hand movements? They just help in conveying his message and show the enthusiasm and passion he has for his subjects. I'm a proud hand movement user as well, bro! #freethehands

  21. He has a perfectly efficient way of proving his point and nature of things…he could have said that hand gestures are natural and all but no he proved it indirectly. This is some great argumentative skills used through action here

  22. Hassan let your hands free, I didn't notice your hand movements were weird till the time I went through comments. But tbh they compliment your whole act. πŸ’›πŸ§‘

  23. Something you do that Oliver, Stewart, Colbert and all the rest do too (as well as Obama to an annoying degree) is overuse the word, "look". You don't ever need to start a sentence with "Look" unless you are telling me to physically use my eyeballs to see something like an eclipse. But as an assertation, it's actually quite rude to the rest of the world. I think Americans are just used to commentators saying it. I'm Canadian. We don't.

  24. I like the hand movements, I find it more of an engaging conversation, or maybe because I'm Indian…. Well I don't know

  25. I have also been told that I use a lot of hand movements! I feel that it makes me explain this better tho. I’m not alone!
