YANG CAN: You might know Jimmy O. Yang from Silicon Valley, but did you know he also wrote for the Harlem Globetrotters?

As a kid, the Hong Kong-born standup comic Jimmy O. Yang says he never really considered a career in show business. As he told Conan O’Brien last summer, “My dad always said pursuing your dreams is how you become homeless.” But after he moved to the U.S. Yang developed an independent streak. He scored smaller TV roles before his big break on the hit HBO sitcom Silicon Valley, where as Jìan-Yáng he regularly delivered some of the show’s most absurd jokes. He appeared in Crazy Rich Asians and has a book—How To American: An Immigrant’s Guide to Disappointing Your Parents.
