Video: Watch Fresh Off the Boat Tip Its Hat to Margaret Cho's All American Girl

Fresh Off the Boat All American Girl

Before there was Fresh Off the Boat, there was All American Girl — a fact the ABC sitcom is cheekily acknowledging at the end of tonight’s all-new episode (8/7c).

The fourth-wall shattering moment, which you can exclusively preview below, finds the freshman hit paying homage to Margaret Cho’s short-lived ’90s ABC comedy — AKA Boat‘s Asian-American sitcom ancestor.

Spoiler Alert: Constance Wu steals the scene without uttering a single word.

      All the actors are pretty good, Constance Wu is pretty funny with making fun of the Tiger moms I guess. I think her character could’ve been just as charming if she was more pleasant instead of being kind of harsh, but it’s still funny though. I also thought that was a nice tribute to Margaret’s show, too bad asian actors are underrepresented and not really taken seriously yet. Some of my non asian friends always makes fun of asian stereotypes and thinks it’s fun to make fun of asians.
