Mpho, Hasan, and Aditi in Los Angeles

Stand Up Planet

Stand Up Planet

For the first time, "Stand Up Planet," a documentary and transmedia project, will harness the universal power of comedy to change the conversation about global poverty.

At the center of Stand Up Planet is a U.S.-based host — Hasan Minhaj, a stand-up comic on a quest to find some of the best humor coming from corners of the developing world. Starting from his own personal story — India-born kid to Hollywood comic — Hasan embarks on an epic journey to discover some of the funniest stand-up comics in the most unlikely places: the bustling city of Mumbai, India, home to Tanmay Bhat and Aditi Mittal, and the neighborhoods of Johannesburg, South Africa, where he meets Mpho Popps, Kagiso Lediga, and Loyiso Gola.
