To be frank, I hadn’t heard of Kumail Nanjiani before watching The Big Sick. And it wasn’t even my idea to watch this movie. The only people I knew in this film were Zoe Kazan (thanks to What If) and Ray Romano. My husband told me that Nanjiani was one of the funniest guys in America and that we absolutely had to watch the movie. So I said yes, we should watch it and lo and behold! We did!
Ellen DeGeneres is one of the funniest women showbiz has ever seen. And any debate about it would be futile. Being one of the most influential talk show hosts, not to mention generous, Ellen has helped thousands of people over the years. Her quick wit and poker face seldom fails to elicit laughter.
