DESCRIPTION:
(from Comedy Central's press release, June 2018) Comedy Central summer series, Ronny Chieng: International Student, will premiere as the #1 brand in comedy's first-ever app exclusive original series. Beginning Monday, August 13, fans can binge-watch all seven episodes of the half-hour scripted television show, Ronny Chieng: International Student, which will be available to stream exclusively on the Comedy Central App. "We're thrilled to expand our relationship with Ronny and give his fans here in the U.S. access to this truly binge-worthy series all at once," said Tanya Giles, General Manager, Comedy Central. "We've been waiting for the right project to launch in its entirety as an app-exclusive and Ronny's name-recognition combined with the habits of many Daily Show fans who stream it via the Comedy Central App, make this the perfect series to premiere on the platform." Nominated for a 2018 Australian Writers Guild Award, TV Week Australia called Ronny Chieng: International Student "hilarious," Sunday Age deemed it "screamingly hysterical" and gave it 5 stars, while the Herald Sun gave it 4 out of 4 stars and called it comedy "gold." Ronny Chieng: International Student is loosely based on Chieng's real life experience as a Chinese law student in Australia. It's a series about being caught between worlds; between childhood and adulthood, between your old life and your new life, between your parent's expectations and your own dreams - even if you haven't worked out what they are. But mostly it's about the stupid stuff that happens when you're young and don't know what the hell you're doing. In the series, which was co-written by Chieng (The Daily Show with Trevor Noah), Ronny plays a Malaysian student who's come to Australia to study law. He's smart, driven and competitive, which would make him the perfect law student, if he actually wanted to be a lawyer. As viewers follow Chieng from his first day on campus to the final exam of semester, he'll encounter binge-drinking Australians, pompous blazer-wearing private school kids and hyper competitive anti-social Asian students who want him to act "more Asian." A genuine outsider, Ronny is suspicious of any group that wants him as a member - be it the rowdy Australians, the Mahjong playing Asians or the blueblood... idiots. Blunt, barbed and not afraid to cut through the B.S., it's not long before Ronny is at odds with most people on campus.
