    He also owns the closed mouth smile game.

    Since its premiere in select theaters on June 23, the movie has received overwhelmingly positive reviews and currently holds a 97% freshness rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

    He co-wrote the film with writer, producer, and wife Emily V. Gordon, on whom the film is actually based.

    This past Saturday, Nanjiani decided to take on the massive task of replying to literally every person who saw (and tweeted about) The Big Sick over the weekend.
