Meet Ronny Chieng (The Daily Show). He’s a Malaysian student who’s come to Australia to study law. He’s smart, driven and competitive, which would make him the perfect law student, if he actually wanted to be a lawyer.
Blunt, barbed and not afraid to cut through BS, it’s not long before Ronny is at odds with most people on campus. A genuine outsider, Ronny is suspicious of any group that wants him as a member – be it the rowdy Australians, the Mah-jong playing Asians or the blueblood...idiots.
Thankfully, Ronny makes an unlikely ally in Asher Angus, a fellow first year from a small country town whose laconic nature and eternal optimism makes her the absolute opposite of Ronny. But the one thing they do share is a feeling of being on the outside looking in, and seeing a bunch of idiots staring back.
