Bowen Yang is the first Chinese-American and third openly gay male cast member to grace the legendary Saturday Night Live stage. He was given the gig in 2019 after a stint in the writers’ room. When he’s not breaking barriers as one of the few Asian-Americans to ever appear on SNL, he’s collaborating with fellow comedian Matt Rogers for their podcast Las Culturistas, filming series such as Awkwafina Is Nora From Queens, or writing an upcoming Apple TV+ musical comedy. Though he recently deleted his Twitter account, he sustains his 146,000 Instagram followers with selfies, podcast previews, political commentary, and the odd photo of an abandoned hot dog on the beach.
