Daily Show: Hasan Minhaj hits Philadelphia for the pope's Mass for digital short

Comedy Central

The Daily Show kicked off with its new host, Trevor Noah, Monday night, and the show introduced its first digital exclusive with a little help from Hasan Minhaj, Pope Francis, and the pope’s No. 1 fans — Pope Heads. It was pure pope-demonium.

But where does this pope rank on “The Dopest Popes List”? Somewhere between 1 and 266.
