Sketch comedy quartet Goatface, which includes Indian American comedians Hasan Minhaj and Asif Ali, will bring their wide-ranging brand of humor to Comedy Central for a one-hour special, the network announced July 25.

“Hasan’s work has been so amazing on ‘The Daily Show,’ at the White House Correspondents Dinner and as a stand up, it’s no surprise his history with such a talented sketch group,” said Kent Alterman, president of Comedy Central.

“We’re excited to work with Comedy Central and have cancelled all international flights to ensure our ability to stay in America and finish this project,” said Goatface.

Goatface (goatfacecomedy.com), which consists of Minhaj, who appears as a special correspondent on “The Daily Show with Trevor Noah”; Ali of “Wrecked and “New Girl” fame; Fahim Anwar of “Fahim Anwar: There’s No Business Like Show Business”; and Aristotle Athiras, director of “Fahim Anwar: There’s No Business Like Show Business,” uses sharp, playful sketch work to satirize a vast spectrum of topics including sports, music, politics, media, family relations, social issues and more.

“We’re excited to work with Comedy Central and have cancelled all international flights to ensure our ability to stay in America and finish this project,” said Goatface.
