Joel Kim Booster has done just about everything in Hollywood. Producing, writing, acting, podcasting, hosting, and stand-up, he’s mastered them all. His most ambitious project, Hulu’s Fire Island, which he wrote, produced, and starred in, was welcomed with both critical and audience praise. This spring, he reprises his role as Nicholas, alongside Maya Rudolph, for season 2 of AppleTV’s hit series, Loot.

His work in the entertainment industry has focused the spotlight on his identity as a gay, Asian actor, progressing the talk of Hollywood’s need for diversity even further.

In this intimate chat, we cover his early family life, discovering his culture at a later age, having to move out and make it on his own after coming out, getting into Hollywood via comedy, the evolution of Asian and LGBTQ representation in the media, censorship of comedians, supporting other LGBTQ community members, the new season of Loot, and so much more.
