LA-based writer, comedian and producer Jenny Yang is not afraid to get up in your face for some laughs. She had a show at HBC Gifford Auditorium on Wednesday.
April Fools may be for amateurs, but Jenny Yang is a top flight pro when it comes to the comedy game. She visited Syracuse and put on a hilarious show that touched on topics such as “Fear of Dating White Guys,” “Yellow Fever,” “Decor/Asians,” Real Babies v. Food Babies” and her left swipe tendencies on Tinder. Yang is currently on the road producing the Dis/Orient/ed Tour, and she was featured in the 2013 documentary Why We Laugh: Funny Women. To us the only down side of her show was that it conflicted with an appearance on campus by Taraji P. Henson.
We hope Yang will return to do a few nights at the Funny Bone when her tour returns to the East Coast.
Yang has a show tonight at Swarthmore College (her alma mater)
