Ronny Chieng: International Student




Starring Ronny Chieng (Crazy Rich Asians) – superstar comedian and Senior Correspondent on the Emmy Award-winning US series The Daily Show – this outrageous series broaches the cultural divide with a comedic panache bordering on genius.

The real life story of Ronny’s experience as a Malaysian exchange student who comes to Australia to study law, Ronny Chieng: International Student follows Ronny from his first day on campus to the final exam of semester, as he faces down binge-drinking Australians, pompous private school kids, hyper-competitive Asian students and a law professor who runs his classroom like a cage fight. Not to mention the brash American exchange student who crash lands at International House – taking it from a quiet, studious space to a party frat house in less than 24-hours.

Luckily, Ronny makes an unlikely ally in Asher Angus (Molly Daniels, Tomorrow, When The War Began), a fellow first year law student from a small country town whose laconic nature and eternal optimism makes her the absolute opposite of Ronny. But the one thing they do share is a feeling of being on the outside looking in…and seeing a bunch of idiots staring back.

Ronny Chieng: International Student is a series about being caught between two worlds; between childhood and adulthood, between your old life and your new life, between your parent’s expectations and your own dreams – even if you haven’t worked out what they are yet.
