"Everyone in Pakistan is so friendly" -Jeremy McLellan

Biryani-loving comedian Jeremy McLellan is finally in Pakistan

McLellan is known for often writing about his love for biryani and his humourous commentary on American politics, immigration, Islamophobia and race. His understanding of Islam, diversity of Muslims and Pakistani culture has made him popular among Pakistanis and it’s not uncommon to see a myriad of comments from Muslims and Pakistanis on his Facebook status updates.

Jeremy Facebook Status Updates From Pakistan


Pakistan, Day 1 

Everyone in Pakistan is so friendly. If I accepted every offer I've received to come to people's houses for dinner or tea I would be here for 10 years and gain 1,000 pounds.

Power keeps going out. Not a big deal for me, but whoever fixes the electrical grid would improve things by a lot.

I'm used to having a lot of personal space. Not much of that here. Takes a while to get used to. Thankfully it's all friendly.

Weather is nice, especially on rooftops. Felt like Charleston. Way better than Dubai.

Dinner at Haveli was amazing, and the view of the Badshahi mosque took my breath away.

Finally got to see my reporter friend Usman from Pakistan Today who wrote the first articles about me in Pakistan. Great guy.

Jet lag made me sleep in too much. Hope to see more tomorrow. So far I love it.

"After two years of planning, two weeks of very little sleep, and two days of travel, I have now officially landed in Pakistan. What a blessed and fortunate life I have. Thank you to everyone. My body is tired but my heart is full."

Dinner at Haveli Restaurant overlooking the Badshahi mosque.

Hanging out at Emporium in Lahore!
