The comedy is subjective, but based on the reaction of Celebrity danger! fans on Twitter, they didn’t appreciate being subjected to Hasan Minhaj’s comedy. The patriot act star was playing to raise money for the International Rescue Committeewhich supports the humanitarian effort following devastating floods In Pakistan. While he managed to secure the organization a $30,000 donation, Minhaj was less fortunate when it came to winning over the public.
The comedian’s energy level was much higher than fellow contestants Wil Wheaton and Troian Bellisario. In an attempt to bring levity to the game, Hasan often assaulted the camera and responded to cues with comedic schtick. Unfortunately, the game is so fast-paced that deviating from the natural rhythm often frustrates fans.
The response on Twitter has been overwhelmingly negative. Even Minhaj’s fans found his antics a bit too much for the game.
Annoyed viewers won’t have to worry about Minhaj’s future. The morning show star finished in third place and will not qualify for the semi-finals.
Celebrity danger! airs Sundays at 8 p.m. on ABC.
