Where did he say that quote? I only found that wired autocomplete
I copied the quote from his twitter when adding him in 2016.
I should add that you can see Kumail
did a few big purges of tweets, deleting about 20,000 and 8000 on two big occasions.

That comment is kinda vague, is he saying he is or isn’t 5’10”?
in other words he probably claims 5ft 10 knowing he's under that mark, hence he's a fake 5ft 10er.

Rob, you upgraded him more?
A solid 173 range is probably what he could measure.

Similar height with mine..... but I am heavier than him at least!!!!

He is a little above but not 174cm either. 173.4cm max for Kumail.

Hey Rob, it's quite apparent that he's wearing lifts in these pics next to 176 cm Richard Madden right?
I'm not sure about lifts, but maybe a big fraction more footwear.

He's under 5'6", but funny as heck!

He looks a full 5'8 1/8.

Nice downgrade, he never quite looked the 174 mark!

tom, agents will always "suggest" to actors that they give at least their morning shoe height. In which case, Nanjiani is actually spot on 5'10."

Yeah 5'8 3/4" looks right to me

They ask him his height in this video (Click Here
) and he says five ten, 'rounding up from nine and a half', but he has a sceptical look on his face. I sometimes wonder if celebrities are forced to lie about their height, it's strange.

Maybe a little over 5'8"

Probably the greatest height joke of all time.

Well, at least he explained the fake part LOL.

everything we kno about height is a lie
everyone rounds up and adds 1-2 inches depending on shows
5 -8 becomes 5-9.5/5-10
5-10 becomes 5 -11.5/ 6ft, etc

Rob , please also update Jin Yang's height.
Sam said on 19/May/16
Yeah, he's a witty guy. He can look near 5'8" flat at times. Not much between him and Fred Armisen when Kumail pops up on Portlandia and 2-3 inches between him Thomas Middleditch I'd reckon.

Haha that's a great quote...

Gotta give it to him. Fake 5'10 has a better ring than 5'8.5.
