I always wanted to be an actor, but I didn't really think it was realistic. I booked a role on "Knocked Up" as Dr. Kuni, and that was my big break. My wife encouraged me to pursue acting full-time after that, and I really owe this all to her.

Thank you very much for the kind words. I'm happy to say my wife is still cancer-free and my kids are doing great!!!! That is more important than anything in the world to me.

my favorite guest spot on television ever was being in Michael Scott's improv group on "The Office."

I was only on set for a few hours, but I remember every moment.

indirectly it has. Long hours being on call in the hospital prepared me for occasional long hours on a set.

The cast of Community is the most talented cast in television. Every single person could easily lead their own show. The selflessness that the cast demonstrates trickles down from Joel McHale. He is one of my favorite people in the world. Danny Pudi is the nicest man you could ever meet and a father of twins just like me :) Gillian Jacobs' Britta is soooo fresh and brilliant and it's due to her performance... Gillian as Britta probably makes me laugh more than anyone. Ali Brie is a star, and she never ceases to amaze me. Yvette Nicole Brown is so awesome, sweet, lovely, talented and she's my BUBBY :)))) I share a trailer with Childish Gambino and I've been privileged to hear him create music before anybody else listens to it :))) Jim Rash, what can you say about him? The most complete talent I've ever seen, and the most humble Oscar winner I've ever met. It's safe to say I have become a better person and a better actor because of ALL of them, and I love them all so much.

I loved playing King Argotron in "Role Models" and DND on "Community" may be my favorite episode featuring Chang.

No, I don't LARP or do DND but I did prepare extensively for Role Models going to LARPing events, reading books, and watching DARKON multiple times.

The Hangover means everything to me. Any work I have gotten in the last 4 years is only because of the Hangover. Zach Galifianakis is the funniest man alive. I love him so much.

I am forever grateful to Dan Harmon, one of the most brilliant minds I've ever met in my life, not just in comedy, for creating SeƱor Chang because it has changed my life. Community has made me a better actor & person.

Well, let me Chang that. I LOVE Chevy & never ever had a problem with him. He's one of the reasons I wanted to get into comedy in the first place. Fletch, Caddyshack & Vacation are iconic performances, and they always inspire me. As an actor and as a friend of his, I wish him nothing but the best. He has the most wonderful wife in Jayni and my wife & I absolutely love the Chase family.
