Jimmy Ouyang is a Chinese American stand-up comedian and actor. He plays the character Tang-See on Season 9 of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia. He will also recur on the new HBO Mike Judge series Silicon Valley, premiering April 2014. Most recently he appeared as part of the new STARZ standup special StaannDup!. Jimmy was born in Hong Kong to a traditional Chinese family from Shanghai. He now lives in Los Angeles.
Steve Lee may be the only disabled Chinese comedian working in America. His comedy is mainly centered around living with disability and racism, and his content is remarkably original. Rather than being encumbered by stereotypes, Steve is vitalized by them, and winks back at us through their transparencies. He blends storytelling and punchlines to convey his belief that we are all equal – equally ignorant, fallible, weird, and wanting to be free. For Steve, comedy is a way to get people to laugh about their own shortcomings, including himself. Audiences are left feeling like they’ve witnessed a rare talent at work.
