LOS ANGELES—Monday Night VC: Jenny Yang

May 20 @ 7:00 pm

LOS ANGELES—Join Visual Communications for a conversation with Jenny Yang, a former labor organizer turned standup comedian, writer and actor. She was a staff writer and performer for the premiere season of the late-night talk show Busy Tonight on E! Jenny produces the Disoriented Comedy tour and The Comedy Comedy Festival. In 2016, President Obama honored her as a White House Champion of Change for her leadership in Asian American and Pacific Islander Art and Storytelling. 

This provocative series of Monday sessions with filmmakers and artists to discuss what drives these individuals, something about their backgrounds and what has gotten them to their current place. View clips and memories with them as Walt Louie—veteran director/editor/educator—provokes them into penetrating conversation and storytelling in an intimate and casual setting as part of CENTERING THE MASSES in Little Tokyo.
