In honor of the almost-1 year anniversary of Bowen Yang’s promotion to – the fifth LGBT and first Chinese American! – full cast member on Saturday Night Live, we’re taking a look-back on his best moments on the show.

Although news of Bowen’s initial appointment was buried under Shane Gillis’ reprehensible homophobic and anti-Asian “jokes”, who had been hired (and unceremoniously fired) as cast member at the same time, he’s certainly carved out a bold, fabulous and hilarious name for himself in the past year.

Now a Forbes 30-under-30 multi-hyphenate, with a Shorty Award-nominated podcast Las Culturistas and a recurring role on Awkwafina’s new Comedy Central sitcom, we can’t wait to see what Bowen Yang has in store for us.
