Following up his 2019 stand-up special Asian Comedian Destroys America on the streaming platform, comedian Ronny Chieng is going back to business with Netflix.
Today it was announced that The Daily Show correspondent inked a deal for two stand-up specials and an untitled docu-series. The docu-series was described by Variety as a “‘semi-scripted road trip comedy’ in which Chieng and his fellow comedian David Fung journey through a one-of-a-kind tour of America’s Chinatowns to promote local businesses, explore Asian American culture and push ‘each other to the limits of a brotherly love/hate relationship.’”
In addition to starring in the series, Chieng will also write and executive produce it. The series will be produced in partnership with Fair Point, and producers Jon Cohen, Jon Wolf and Adam Conover. No word has been given however on when we should be expecting any of this to materialize.
