Bowen Yang Facts

  1. Bowen’s family had moved from China to Australia in the 1980s after the cultural revolution in China (1966-1976) so that his father could eventually attend a university that was difficult in China post the revolution period.
  2. His family later relocated to Montreal, Canada and when he was 9 years old, his family eventually settled in Aurora, Colorado in the United States. As a child, he was inspired by late-night talk show hosts David Letterman and Conan O’Brien.
  3. In a weird coincidence, in his high school yearbook’s superlatives section, he was voted as ‘Most Likely to Be a Cast Member on Saturday Night Live’.
  4. Bowen’s parents found out that he was gay when he was 17 after he had forgotten to close a social media chat window on the family’s computer. His parents were very upset at the revelation as gender fluidity was traditionally a very taboo subject in China. His father even sent him to an institution that held sessions for ‘gay conversion therapy’.
  5. While he was attending New York University, he met Matt Rogers and the duo decided to launch, in 2016, a weekly comedy podcast which was named Las Culturistas. From 2013 to 2018, after teaching himself Adobe Photoshop and graphic design, he had also worked for One Kings Lane (OKL), a luxury interior and home design website.
