Hasan Minhaj admits he’s feeling a little sleepy, but you would too if you had as much as he’s got going on. This week on “Happy Sad Confused,” the “Daily Show” correspondent dissects his huge moment delivering the big speech at the recent White House Correspondents’ dinner, revealing his contingency plan if the president had shown up and why the room was so tough.
 
Minhaj also describes what went into making his first comedy special, “Homecoming King” (now on Netflix), why he’s ashamed of one pivotal decision in his relationship with his father, and that time Amy Schumer introduced him to Madonna.
 
Also joining Josh this week are the writer/director/star of “Band Aid,” Zoe Lister-Jones, and her leading man, Adam Pally. The duo compare bar/bat mitzvah stories and describe what it was like working with an all-female crew on the Sundance hit, which comes to theaters this Friday.
