APA Compass: Comedian Jenny Yang

Writer and comedian Jenny Yang’s live performances draw from her experiences as an immig­rant, Asian American and recov­ering overa­chiever. Jenny co-founded the first-ever all female, Asian American standup comedy tour, Dis/orient/ed Comedy, which highlights the powerful and funny voices of diverse talent: a Japanese former import car model, a high-energy South Asian transgender boi, and an Egyptian-American female grouch. Interviewed by Luann Algoso, produced by Luann Algoso and Andrew Yeh.
