So many comedian’s books/ memoirs are just a repackaging of their stand-up routines. This is not true of Jimmy’s. His insights into being an immigrant, living in Chinese-American culture, and finding his way in the entertainment business are current and most importantly funny.
I’m sure people will ask, “Why’s this guy writing a book? He’s not “really” famous and not old enough to know anything.” Jimmy O. Yang is in the midst of it. His take is fresh, honest, and exactly what is needed in this genre filled with old actors trying to rekindle their youth and make a couple extra bucks.
