Jimmy O. Yang, star of “Crazy Rich Asians,” and his producing partners manage one of Hollywood’s trendiest “clubs.”
There isn’t a disc jockey or bottle service. Your ability to prepare and enjoy Dungeness crab will determine whether or not you are admitted.
With the release of his holiday romantic comedy “Love Hard” on Netflix this Friday, Yang has been busy making Crab Club.
The production business he runs with Jessica Gao and Ken Cheng, a formidable force in the entertainment industry.
Is there a reason to join the Crab Club? That’s what their Asian-American entertainment industry pals call them because they all get together often for crab meals.
In addition to sharing a meal, the group was there to encourage one another. Meals are served at various people’s houses in the Los Angeles region. It was like a “cool supper club” to Yang.
When asked by The Associated Press about his experience, Yang said, “I just felt really regular, kind of like when I was shooting ‘Crazy Rich Asians,’ when we didn’t have to explain ourselves.”
Given their location in Hollywood, the meetings quickly grew beyond their original purpose as a support group.
They are now an incubator for television and film projects told from their perspective. Formed by Yang, Gao, and Cheng in 2019, Crab Club, Inc. quickly established its viability.
Jimmy O. Yang
Jimmy O. Yang is an American actor, stand-up comedian, and writer who was born in Hong Kong on June 11, 1987.
Most people recognise him from his roles as Jian-Yang on Silicon Valley (HBO), Dr. Chan Kaifang (Netflix’s Space Force), and Josh Lin (Netflix’s Love Hard) in the romantic comedy film of the same name (2021).
Yang was born in British-controlled Hong Kong. Both of his parents were born in Shanghai but made the journey to Hong Kong as adults.
Yang’s family moved to Los Angeles, California, in 2000, when he was 13 years old. His uncle and aunt were already in the United States.
And they moved there so that Yang and his brother Roy could attend high-quality educational institutions.
Yang attended Beverly Hills High School after spending the eighth year at John Burroughs Middle School.
In 2009, Yang earned his economics degree from UC San Diego. The future Silicon Valley showrunner and fellow alumnus of UCSD, Mike Judge, spoke during his graduation ceremony.

Incubator and production business Crab Club, Inc. was created by Jessica Gao, Jimmy O. Yang, and Ken Cheng. An intimate salon for Asian American and BIPOC artists began as a regular dinner party among friends.
With time, Crab Club grew into what it is today: a centre for groundbreaking, genre-bending, multi-platform projects that explore the intersections of culture and storytelling in ways that are both authentic and engaging.
