In his third appearance on Late Show with David Letterman, check out how Joe Wong keeps a slow and deliberate pacing to his delivery. It not only allows the audience to follow along with his Chinese accent, but also gives them chances to laugh at pauses that normally wouldn’t be punchlines.

It doesn’t hurt that Wong is very likeable and a smart joke writer.

Among the topics he explored last night: Child labor (timely for Labor Day Weekend), science and picking an “American” name.
