SPA To Host Comedian Jimmy O. Yang November 4

Penn State’s Student Programming Association (SPA) will host comedian, actor, and writer Jimmy O. Yang for a free performance at 7 p.m. on Thursday, November 4, in the HUB’s Alumni Hall.

Yang made his first television appearance in 2012 on “Two Broke Girls”. Since his appearance, he has gone on to be featured in a number of shows and movies, including “Silicon Valley” and “Crazy Rich Asians”, as well as making a theatrical debut in “Patriots Day” alongside Mark Wahlberg.

Currently, Yang is working as both an actor and writer on “Space Force”, featuring Steve Carrell and John Malkovich. His other projects include “The Happytime Murders”, “Life of the Party”, “Fantasy Island”, and “Juliet Naked”. He is also set to be in the upcoming romantic comedy, “Love Hard”.

Yang’s book, “How to American: An Immigrant’s Guide to Disappointing Your Parents”, provides a humorous recounting of growing up as an immigrant in Los Angeles.

Yang’s stand-up set is free for Penn State students. No pre-registration is required.
