    The only thing worse than Colbert's interviewing style are his audiences. Did he really joke about Jimmy being racist toward Asians? Good lord they're so consumed with identity politics and terrified of saying or agreeing to a non conformist thought they can't even have fun for five minutes.

    Maybe Jimmy could be in another James Bond movie. His tie could be a propeller and he could fly like inspector gadget, but yet people wouldn't know who he really was because of the glasses. His female partner could have the power twins abilities. Nobody can defeat that!

    'It's like joining a cult" EXACTLY, you Americans have no idea how you come across. Even when just kneeling you get all riled up. What's the fucking point then if standing and holding your hand on your chest if it's not sincere. Those people who kneel out of protest, some people reason they need to be forced to stand but if that's the case then it seems to me that insincere pledging is fine too. What does that say about the pledging to the flag itself?? I don't get it. If the reason behind the whole thing is to show respect to the flag and the nation, the whole concept of forcing it undermines the entire concept of it.

    Slang to a english second language is definitely funny because they don't understand what you are saying and act like they are Egyptian Heiroglyphs, English isn't rigid it's like water constantly changing and words become opposite of what they originally mean every few years its hilarious Jimmy Yang understands

    Congrats My fellow Asian Brother. I grew up watching HK Gung Fu cinemas with my Grandma. All about the 80s Jackie Chan, Samo Hung, Andy Lau, Chow Yun Fat. Jimmy, I don't know if you know of the Famous Lead Singer of Beyond -Kai. But you look like him. ;)
    Anyways. I'm in LA as well and I also do Comedy.
    I bet our paths will cross eventually.
    I fell in love with the Silicon Valley show. I was super stoked to see an Asian guy in the show. I was like yeah! But honestly, I had no idea your name. I was sent a casting submission to play a double or role of you. I looked up your name and was like, hey I know that dude. But I was like I don't have long hair, wear glasses or look like a girl from behind!;D if you RUclip hELLA HUNG. That's me;)

    I think Stephen was being a dick. Producers probably pushed Jimmy on the show and Stephen thought he wasn't big enough to sit on the couch, that's why he mentioned it's your first time. Stephen wanted to do the segment and move on. I guess Stephen has DICK side like everyone else.

    the very best i take about this interview/talk is that Stephen let Jimmy actually talk and did not deviate much from the topics, I always admire people who do that, instead of talking more about themselves and end up drifting into other less interesting topics
