Where did he say that quote? I only found that wired autocomplete
Editor Rob
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”?
Editor Rob
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?
Editor Rob
A solid 173 range is probably what he could measure.

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.

That quote lol.
Never said on 6/Jul/19
He's under 5'6", but funny as heck!

He looks a full 5'8 1/8.
Matt99 said on 12/May/18
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."
Don Julio said on 10/Jan/18
Yeah 5'8 3/4" looks right to me
tom said on 16/Dec/17
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"
Heyja said on 15/Mar/17
Probably the greatest height joke of all time.
truth said on 24/May/16
Well, at least he explained the fake part LOL.
bob said on 20/May/16
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...
TJE said on 17/May/16
Gotta give it to him. Fake 5'10 has a better ring than 5'8.5.
