Kumail Nanjiani’s Dhalsim Lights a Yoga Fire in Our Hearts


L.A. comedian Kumail Nanjiani will always have TR cred for his appearance in Bad Milo, the greatest ass-demon movie ever made. But as the easiest-to-beat, yet most eccentric Street Fighter II character, he proves that he can, er, stretch. And though it may not have been much of a challenge to begin with, he does better than the guy who played Chatter Lal in the Van Damme movie at capturing the insanity/absurdity of a fire-breathing, skull-wearing, arm-extending fakir.

Yes, it’s another of Pete Holmes’ recurring skits, but if he keeps getting appropriate comics to play Street Fighter characters, long may it continue. Amy Schumer as Cammy, perhaps?
