Pop culture obsessives writing for the pop culture obsessed.

The show might be called Awkwafina Is Nora From Queens, but BD Wong and Lori Tan Chinn are some of the most brightly shining stars in the new Comedy Central series. As Nora’s dad, Wally, and grandmother, Wong and Chinn shape Nora’s backstory and future, providing love, support, and—occasionally—a little kick in the pants. Chinn in particular is charming and hilarious, while Wong’s quest for a new partner for Wally provides some of the show’s most heartwarming moments. The A.V. Club talked to the longtime friends and co-stars in Los Angeles, where Chinn surprised Wong with a run-down of her extensive t-shirt collection, and us with a little hint of her audition for Hustlers.
