Actress and comedian Jenny Yang of "The Brothers Sun" fame is performing her standup comedy in San Francisco this weekend.

State of play: The comedian grabbed headlines for her role as an assassin in Netflix's action series "The Brothers Sun."

  • On Saturday, Yang is scheduled to perform her comedy show, "Self Help Me," at SF Sketchfest at Cobb's Comedy Club in North Beach.
  • Yang told Axios she's excited for the crowds and the food in the Bay.

What they're saying: "I always love that the crowds are ready to go," Yang told Axios' Maxwell Millington. "They're always so hype, whether it's East Bay or whether it's San Francisco. I love that it is a city that has enough of that kind of concentration of people and humanity and culture that they appreciate going to live events like comedy shows."

  • Plus, Yang said she's always excited to check out the Asian food scene in the Bay Area.
  • "I've toured all over the world and nowhere else would I be like, 'Let me try the Asian food here,'" she said. "Because everywhere else, it's like, why would I?"

What's next: You can buy tickets for Yang's show here. Tickets start at $37.
