Comedian and actor Jimmy O. Yang, best known for his role in the HBO series "Silicon Valley," offers a tongue-in-cheek resource guide for immigrants with his new book, "How to American." The memoir details Yang's experience as an immigrant from Hong Kong trying to make it in Hollywood, which included learning English from watching "The Sopranos" and working as a strip club DJ. Yang joins Forum to talk about stereotypes and how this book is what he wishes he could've read when he first came to the U.S.
