A Netflix comedy special
Ronny Chieng, a standup comedian, takes on a debut in a Netflix special called “Asian Comedian Destroys America!” As a former Crazy Rich Asians star, Ronny takes on the stage again but in a slightly different ballpark as he shares his perspectives on his journey to the US thus far from his upbringings in England, Singapore, and Australia. Not everything he says about the States is a roast though, as he sheds light on all the positives of the country as well.
His take on America…
There’s so much stuff here – an abundance! Christmas every day. iPhones 8 and 10 at the same time. Skipping iPhone models. There’s so much food, content! So many screens. How many screens can you get between your head and the wall? iPhone, iPad, laptop, TV…and Apple Watch!
His take on Americans…
Never_leave_the_house! Americans will have the smallest items in the world…delivered to their houses. The entire US airspace is taken up by Amazon prime. Deliveries should be instant! Same day delivery is un-American. Prime Now! Put the food directly into my mouth! Prime Before – send it to me before I want it!
