Eugene Lee Yang is one of today's most prolific digital content producers and performers whose collective work has been viewed billions of times. This past year, he and his fellow cofounders of the unscripted comedy series The Try Guys created their own independent production company, 2nd Try, and their new YouTube channel amassed over 5 million subscribers in 6 months. Together, they hosted the 2018 Streamys where they won Show of the Year, wrote their debut book, The Hidden Power Of F*cking Up, which releases in June, and will launch their podcast The TryPod. Yang is well-known for being a prevalent voice for Asian and LGBTQ+ representation in the digital space and hosted The Trevor Project's TrevorLIVE 2018 event. He also recently made his acting debut, appearing in Brooklyn Nine-Nine and in the upcoming indie film Spring Bloom, with a number of more traditional projects in development. As one of YouTube's most-watched personalities, Yang has pioneered a uniquely hilarious, unapologetically controversial, and intimately complex image of the modern Asian American and continues to incorporate strong themes influenced by his Korean, Southern, and queer backgrounds into his projects.
