Kumail Nanjiani On Turning A Crisis Into Comedy

The first time Kumail Nanjiani met the parents of his future wife, Emily Gordon, was in her hospital room as Emily lay motionless in a coma. She eventually recovered, and the pair have turned the experience into the critically acclaimed romantic comedy “The Big Sick.” The film opens in Dallas this weekend, and Nanjiani joins us to talk about finding humor in one of the darkest times of their lives.
