It's a lot of pressure for Eliot Chang to represent an entire nation with his jokes. (0:58)

TO GET COMFORTABLEWITH THIS FIRST.

I SEE SOME PEOPLELOOKING AT ME LIKE,

"AN ASIAN?THIS IS GONNA SUCK."

[ LAUGHTER ]

I KNOW THE DEAL.

PEOPLE GET SCAREDWHEN THERE'S AN ASIAN UP HERE.

I GET SCAREDWHEN THERE'S ASIANS OUT THERE.

I DO, 'CAUSE THEY ALL LOOK AT METHE SAME WAY, LIKE,

"OH, GOD, PLEASE BE FUNNY,PLEASE BE FUNNY.

"REPRESENT, MOFO.REPRESENT!

KEEP IT REAL!"

THAT'S EXACTLYWHAT THEY'RE THINKING.

THAT'S A LOT OF PRESSURE FOR ME.

NOW I GOT TO BE A ROLE MODEL,YOU KNOW?

OTHER COMICS --THEY JUST HAVE TO BE FUNNY.

I HAVE TO REPRESENTAN ENTIRE NATION.

[ LAUGHTER ]

EVERY TIME I DO A JOKE,I'M LIKE,

"YEAH, THIS PUNCH LINE'SFOR THE MOTHERLAND!"

[ LAUGHTER,CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ]

"FOLLOW ME!"

SO, I HAVE ONE OF THOSE FRIENDS
