Aasif Mandvi’s speech at the 2015 Congressional Radio and TV Correspondents’ Dinner

“Listen, I don’t care how this goes tonight, because tomorrow it’s going to say Muslim Bombs or Muslim Kills. It’s bad for me, either way.”

That was Aasif Mandvi, speaking at the Congressional Radio and Television Correspondents’ Dinner last weekend in Washington, D.C. Mandvi, 49, was born in India, grew up in England, moved to Tampa at 16, where he studied at the University of South Florida. He joined Comedy Central’s The Daily Show with Jon Stewart as a correspondent in 2006.

Watch his whole speech now, which skewers both the media and our perceptions of Washington, D.C., Islam and more. Roll the clip.
