A Very Different Chinese New Year

A Very Different Chinese New Year

In his 2020 standup comedy special, “Hope You Get Rich”, Asian American comedian Ronny Chieng explains that the go-to phrase during Chinese New Year (the biggest event in the Chinese calendar) isn't “happy new year” – it's “hope you get rich”.
