about

Aasif Mandvi-best known for his work as a correspondent on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart -has been dealing with identity issues across three continents and 30 years. With wit, smarts, and a good dose of hard-earned perspective, Mandvi explores a range of engrossing stories: dealing with his brunch-obsessed father, being a teenage Michael Jackson impersonator, and playing snake charmers, taxi drivers, and eventually a fake journalist as an actor in New York, where he was even once told that he wasn't Indian" enough for a role. Now in paperback, No Land's Man is a laugh-out-loud account of a second-generation immigrant's search for meaning and identity in an increasingly confusing world."
Aasif Mandvi is best known as a correspondent on Comedy Central's The Daily Show with Jon Stewart . He lives in New York City.

Editorial Reviews

A warm and explosively funny book.' ? The New York Times'Mandvi? writes with the precision of someone who makes jokes on a tightly scripted television show. The well-chosen details recount painful episodes at times, from a British boarding school at its worst to casting directors? casual racism. But there?s plenty of triumph, too ? especially one moment involving a perfect rendition of Michael Jackson?s 'Billie Jean,' which is really the best kind of triumph.' ? The Washington Post
