Kumail Nanjiani Talks Parents, Fame, and Porn on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’

Here’s a clip from Kumail Nanjiani’s chat with Jimmy Kimmel last night, where he talks about how hard it’s been to convince his parents that he’s a famous and successful guy: “A couple years ago my dad was like ‘Hey, so when are you gonna go to med school?’ I was like ‘Dad, I was on Letterman last week. I think that ship has sailed.'” He also looks back on the days he was essentially his friends’ porn tape dealer, which led to a glorious prank involving the 1985 film Mask.
