Yong, a Korean American boy in the 1980s, is obsessed with pop culture. He also has trouble fitting in with his American classmates, who consider him a foreigner despite their common interests. After a particularly devastating rejection by the “cool” kids, Yong makes a wish to become the world’s most famous foulmouthed standup comedian, Eddie Meyers. When his wish comes true in an unexpected and hilarious way, he achieves popularity but soon faces the downsides of not being himself.
