520 _aLuckily for Crazy Rich Asian and Silicon Valley actor and comedian Jimmy O. Yang, doing what you love can lead to money and happiness. Arriving in Los Angeles from Hong Kong at age 13, Jimmy learned English by watching BET RapCity for three hours a day, worked as a strip club DJ while pursuing his comedy career, and finally became a proud US citizen after over a decade. Featuring those and many other hilarious stories, How to American mocks stereotypes while offering tongue in cheek advice on pursuing the American dreams of fame, fortune, and strippers.
