Aasif Mandvi Talks Broadway’s ‘Disgraced’ with Brooke Gladstone

Friday September 24 2021 • 12:16pm - 12:16pm ET

In February, actor and comedian Aasif Mandvi sat down in The Greene Space with On the Media host and managing editor Brooke Gladstone to talk comedy, making “fake news” and his work on Broadway.

Mandvi might be best known for his work on “The Daily Show,” but he’s also an accomplished theater actor. Here, he discusses his role in “Disgraced,” the critically acclaimed play by Ayad Akhtar that was awarded the 2013 Pulitzer Prize for drama this week. Hear Mandvi talk about what he calls “one of the bravest plays I’ve ever read.”
