Pakistani American comedian Kumail Nanjiani plays Dinesh in the new HBO comedy “Silicon Valley,” about the absurdities of startup culture.
"What’s interesting is that a lot of these guys have a lot of money, but they don’t really know how to party. So they’re sort of partying in their own world. They’re approximating what they think partying is. You know, the first scene of the episode, you’re at a really, really big ostentatious party, but you sort of see that it doesn’t quite work."
See the full interview with Nanjiani, including his story of moving from Pakistan to Iowa, going from a computer science major to stand-up comedy and almost running over Bill Murray.
