                So annoying when a white person asks Asians where are they from. If you look at history, native Americans share same ancestry as some of Asians. So, if you want to get technical, we were here first before Columbus was even known.

                  • Bishwo's opinion always right

                    i cannot believe Jimmy Kimmel asked him "where are you from?", we all know what does that exactly mean, what jimmy and people like him in the mind when they asked that questioin

                        Jimmy just asked where Randall was from, and people are on here acting like the man asked him why he chose not to work a high risk railroad job for reduced wages! I swear, outrage junkies will get offended by the most innocuous interactions. Chill out.

                                I think we need to have an Asian American interviewing Randall Park and Ali Wong...the interview would go in another direction. I'm tired of the questions relating to Asian stereotypes. First off, I would congratulate them being the star actors in an American Netflix film and talk about how fuckin hilarious the movie was especially the cold brew joke.

                                  Why always starting with those same questions. I do not watch Kimmel show anymore but come on! “Do your parents support your career as a comedian or actor?” Boring

                                          Jim should apologize for that stupid question “Where are you from originally”

                                            It's sad that it seems unless you are Caucasian, you aren't assumed to be American-born.

                                                        I like Jimmy Kimmel's style of interviewing. He really lets the guest talk and gives them the spotlight. The best talk show host after Conan in my opinion.

                                                          I thought he was friends with Ali Wong for 16 years , then why did he say he has no friends in show Buisness ?

Jimmy's first line of questioning is remininding me of his early days hosting the MAN SHOW with adam Corolla. Not a good thing. Like you jimmy. But as an asian American not impressed with this interview. You can do better, sir.

                                                                  • Chrissie Moran

                                                                    • Gamer Kahn

                                                                                  1. Ask where they’re from.
                                                                                  2. Ask where they’re ORIGINALLY from.
                                                                                  3. Ask where their parents are from.
                                                                                  4. Ask what their parents think of their acting career.

                                                                                  Edit: Adding to say the new Jimmy Kimmel interview with Ali Wong was refreshing and didn't ask these questions.

Everything he says about building the back page ads is true. In fact, when i left the paper, Randy built a fake ad depicting me as male prostitute and slipped it past the editors. He was kind enough to place a black bar over my eyes. I still have a copy of that paper. You rock, Randy. So happy for all your success!
