SINGAPORE — Hong Kong-born American comedian Jimmy O. Yang's upcoming stand-up show at the The Star Theatre on 8 December has been cancelled due to "unforeseen circumstances".

In a Facebook post on Thursday (29 September), organisers Live Nation Singapore apologised to those who have already purchased tickets to the show, and while the fans will receive a full refund from Ticketmaster through the original mode of payment, it could take up to 40 business days for refunds to be processed.

Yang, 35, shot to fame with the HBO comedy series "Silicon Valley" (2014 to 2019), where he played app developer Jian-Yang, a key character from the second to the final season of the show. He also starred in the hit movie "Crazy Rich Asians" (2018), where he played spoilt heir Bernard Tai.

In between his stand-up shows and being a writer for the Netflix comedy series "Space Force" (2020 to 2022), Yang also penned a memoir, "How to American: An Immigrant's Guide to Disappointing Your Parents", in which he shares his story of growing up with his Chinese immigrant parents in Los Angeles.
