Over the past 10 years, there has been a seismic shift in the tectonic plates of American culture.
Today, Asian Americans from a variety of backgrounds are breaking the stereotype that being Asian American is a monolith.
Other Asian American comedy shows like “Kim’s Convenience” and “Nora from Queens” all subvert our understandings of the Asian as a humorless, emasculated, and nerdy male or a subservient, shy, and obedient woman.
Through comedy, one can scrutinize stigmas that are present in the Asian American experience and learn to laugh at them.
Of course, no review of the decade in Asian American culture could neglect the global phenomenon that was “Crazy Rich Asians” in 2018.
