About “Y’all, We Asian”:
Step aside Matt Damon — there’s a new Asian in town. Comprised of experienced performers from all five Austin improv theaters, “Y’all, We Asian” is Austin’s (and definitely Texas’) first all Asian-American troupe. Come for the laughs, stay for the bathroom because you peed your pants and seriously should take care of that. #KeepAustinAsian
