Laugh and chat with comedian and Emmy-nominated writer Karen Chee! Described as “unflinchingly cheery, happily ironic, [and] socially perceptive” (Harvard Magazine), Karen brings a young perspective and unique voice that draws her Korean-American heritage into her work. Immediately following the comedy set, the event continues with an artist talk moderated by Asian American Cultural Center student leaders Diza Hendrawan '25 and Ishikaa Kothari '25, and concludes with audience Q&A with Chee.

Karen Chee is a comedian and Emmy-nominated writer for Late Night with Seth Meyers. She has also written for the second season of Pachinko (Apple), the Golden Globesthe New York Times, and The New Yorker.
