“I've been watching Comedy Central since I was old enough to hold a remote, and so many of their shows have defined who I am today,” said Awkwafina. “I am so honored to be given their platform to tell the story of an Asian against the backdrop of the city I was raised.”

“This is a special project. Inspired by Awkwafina's formative years in Queens, the show is both a personal look into one of comedy's brightest stars and also a relatable, funny profile of a young hustler's struggle,” said Larsen and Babineau. “We're happy to be used as a pawn in Awkwafina's elaborate, EGOT endgame.”
