• Hasan Minhaj gets Tan France Queer Eye treatment in Netflix promo video

    Hasan Minhaj gets the Queer Eye treatment for his new political Netflix series Patriot Act. In a video released by the streaming giant, Minhaj and Queer Eye star Tan France pick out an outfit for the Homecoming King comedian. The video is called But First and hopefully won’t be the only time we see a new Netflix star get a makeover.

    The two joke and bond over the course of the video as they talk about their South East Asian heritage and their style preferences. Minhaj even teaches France what a ‘fuckboi’ is while roasting the various outfit options.

    Patriot Act with Hasan Minhaj will center around the host’s comedic takes on the political topic of the week. Unlike your typical fake news program, the former Daily Show correspondent will do his commentary from a stage where he can move around instead of being confined to a desk.

    France casually slips in that he’s currently filming Queer Eye 2019’s season 3, which does not have a release date yet. This is not the fashion guru’s first comedian makeover. He styled comedian Joe Gallios on the show’s first season. He also made over Pete Davidson for a Saturday Night Live segment that showed the two shopping at Saks Fith Avenue.

    The nearly 10-minute video is a departure from more conventional trailers, but Netflix also put out a short promotional teaser earlier this month if you’re super traditional

    Patriot Act with Hasan Minaj debuts October 28 on Netflix. See the full Patriot Act/Queer Eye cross over video here:
