Daily Show correspondent Ronny Chieng is getting his own TV show on Comedy Central, but you can only watch it via the network’s app.
Ronny Chieng: International Student, will premiere as the network’s first-ever app exclusive original series on Monday, Aug. 13. All seven half-hour episodes will be available for streaming on the Comedy Central App.
The series already aired on TV in Australia, and is loosely based on Chieng’s real life experience as a Chinese law student in Australia.
