Ronny Chieng: International Student to Air in US(!) and Australia in 2017





- Follow up to this ONTD post[And/or you can watch the trailer here]



- Was one of six pilots aired on Aunty as part of Comedy Showroom, with viewer feedback determining which pilot(s) would be picked up. Ronny's show was the best reviewed, followed by The Katering Show's Bleak

- International Student will air in July 2017 on ABC in Australia and Comedy Central in the US

- Chieng announced the news on Des Bishop's podcast (warning for autoplay)

- Also talked about how Americans only want an Americanised version of international perspectives, because the fact that he is a Malaysian-born Chinese guy who grew up in Singapore and lived in Australia for 10 years is too much to handle -- he's just 'Asian'



ONTD, have you ever had to dumb yourself down? Do you worry about leaving the iron on? And how amazing was Ronny's takedown of that racist arse Watter?
