Actor and comedian Jimmy O. Yang talks about moving from Hong Kong to LA at 13, how DJing at a strip club helped his stand up, and why filming Crazy Rich Asians felt so. damn. good.
Jimmy O. Yang’s memoir is How to American: An Immigrant’s Guide to Disappointing Your Parents.
About the podcast:
Phoebe Robinson is tired of being the token black woman in an ocean of white dude comedians. So in this podcast, Phoebe’s calling the shots. She hosts intimate, funny and super honest conversations with musicians, actors, writers and comedians who are killing it in their fields—AND who aren’t white dudes! Stay tuned for the one token white guy (it’s only fair), cameos by Phoebe’s ball-busting executive producer Ilana Glazer, and a whole lot of hijinks.
