Out June 23, The Big Sick is a romantic comedy based on the real-life relationship between Kumail Nanjiani and wife Emily V. Gordon. Fans know Nanjiani as a comedian who stars as computer programmer Dinesh on HBO's Silicon Valley, while Gordon is a writer and co-creator of The Meltdown With Jonah and Kumail, which ran for three seasons on Comedy Central. Co-produced by Judd Apatow and directed by The State's Michael Showalter, the film centers on Nanjiani, who comes from a conservative Pakistani-Muslim family, and his white girlfriend. When Emily (played by Zoe Kazan) becomes sick with a mysterious illness, Nanjiani has to deal with her parents, played by Holly Hunter and Ray Romano. To promote the movie, The Big Sick Comedy Tour features stand-up by Nanjiani, Apatow, Romano and film co-star Kurt Braunohler. Proceeds benefit the International Rescue Committee, Harvest Home and American-Italian Cancer Foundation.
