A Conversation with SNL's Bowen Yang
Bowen Yang made history when he became Saturday Night Live's first Asian-American featured player (he's also one of the show's very few openly gay male cast members). Currently hosting the wildly popular podcast Las Culturistas and co-starring in the Comedy Central show Awkwafina Is Nora from Queens, we join Bowen at home for a fun, frank conversation moderated by Virginia Tech student Jessica Nguyen.
A New York-based actor, writer, and producer, Yang was named one of Comedy Central's Up Next comedians at Clusterfest in San Francisco and one of its Comics to Watch in 2015. Bowen has appeared on Jon Glaser Loves Gear (truTV), Broad City (Comedy Central), High Maintenance (HBO), and The Outs (Vimeo), and has created various live shows, including Live on Broadgay, Lake Homo High, and Drag Court. He has performed sketch comedy with Pop Roulette and has been featured on Above Average, The Onion News Network, Mashable, and CollegeHumor.
This event is recommended for age 18 and up.
