Ronny Chieng International Student episode 1 debuted on BBC3 from 10am Friday October 13. Episodes will be available every Friday 10am on the BBC Iplayer.
“This series is laugh out loud funny and Ronny Chieng is such an exciting comedy talent – we are so looking forward to introducing the show to BBC Three viewers,” said Sue Deeks, BBC Head of Programme Acquisition.
Chieng plays himself in the seven-episode comedy series, based on his life and experiences as an international university student living and studying in Australia.
Blunt, barbed and not afraid to cut to the point, it’s not long before Ronny is at odds with most of the people on campus - from the binge-drinking Australians, to the Mah-jong playing Asians or the rich students who, in Ronny’s words, dress like they’re captaining a yacht.
Ronny Chieng: International Student is a Sticky Pictures production, with funding from ABC TV, Screen Australia, Film Victoria, and Comedy Central (US), co-written and co-created by Ronny Chieng and Declan Fay, directed by Jonathan Brough, and produced by Donna Andrews.
