This week on the show is actor, writer, and comedian Randall Park! He reflects on his strikingly diverse childhood friend group, becoming ‘the entertainment’ at parties, founding the still-active Asian American theatre company at UCLA, pivoting from his masters in Asian American studies to a professional acting career, persisting against viscous stereotypes, solidifying his creative voice through short filmmaking, embracing the steady success of Fresh Off the Boat, and maintaining his humility through the pursuit of new projects.
