I know what you’re thinking: We only have a month to celebrate the culturally diverse and rich heritage of Canadians of Asian origin? Well, the countdown is on, so let’s get cracking.
While the government of Canada has made a list of notable Asian Canadians including philanthropists, Olympians, military heroes, and scientists, CBC Comedy made our own list of heroes: the ones who work tirelessly, day and night... to make us laugh.
During Asian Heritage Month, we’re celebrating Asians changing the world one joke at a time.
From the Kims’ take on raising a family in downtown Toronto to comedian and Daily Show correspondent Ronny Chieng’s hilarious experiences as an international student in Australia, there’s a wealth of Asian talent and stories that’ll make you point at your screen and shout, “Yes! That totally happened to me!” while laughing yourself silly.
