Comedian Jason Cheny addresses Asian American ‘arrogance’ when asked where they’re from

Posted on

Comedian Jason Cheny asks “why Asian [Americans] have to hate on other Asians” in a video posted to his TikTok account.

In a clip of his act shared on Wednesday, Cheny points to an audience member and asks, “What’s your ethnic background?”

“You’re American obviously, yes?” Cheny notes before getting a response.

“‘Cause they always give you grief,” he explains to the audience. “Like sometimes I ask an Asian person, ‘Where you from?’ They’re like, ‘Uh America, land of the free. Where are you from?’”

“‘Cause I’m an immigrant,” continues Cheny. “So whenever an Asian person asks another Asian person and they’re born in America, they have this f*cking arrogance. They’ll be like, ‘Uh, f*cking here, the greatest country of the free world,’” he mimics while putting a hand on his hip.

The comedian continues, exasperated, “I’m just like, ‘Why do you gotta — you know what I’m asking, bitch. Just answer me where your f*cking face is from, man.’”

“We have the same kind of face; let’s just bond, dude,” Cheny adds as he interlocks his two hands.
