A Conversation with Master of None’s Kelvin Yu

David, Heather and Adam sit down to talk about a number of topics with the very charming and funny Kelvin Yu, who plays Brian Cheng on Netflix’s critically acclaimed Original Series, Master of None.

Kelvin talks to us about his early experiences in the industry, working to evolve past the stereotypical roles that are often offered to Asian-American actors and how he came to be part of both the Bob’s Burgers creative team as well as appearing on a groundbreaking series with Aziz Ansari.

We also discuss how Netflix frees a show to take chances creatively, what it’s like to share scenes with Aziz, Eric Wareheim, Lena Waithe and Noel Wells, as well as the Omnivore’s Dilemma and it’s relation to the series.  We even find out which cast member was the first to inform him he was named the Guardian’s “Crush of the Week”.

We also talk a little bit about Kelvin’s plans for the future and the prospects of a Season 2 for this hit series.
