Aasif Mandvi - best known for his work as a correspondent on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart - has been dealing with his identity issues across three continents and thirty years.
With wit, smarts and a good dose of hard-earned perspective, Mandvi shares his journey from battling bullies and idealising the Fonz as a child in England to becoming a teenage Michael Jackson impersonator in Tampa, Florida 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.
A mix of humorous stories, heartfelt observations and misfit mayhem, 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.
