He talks candidly about the peculiar arc of his career: from the early days playing broad stereotypes to his current success, working alongside Tina Fey and others.

Why is broadening the racial and cultural experience in Hollywood crucial, especially now, in the era of Obama? With hilarious clips from 30 Rock and other shows, Pancholy brings you behind the scenes of an industry that is unique, rewarding and -- thanks to efforts like his -- changing for the better. Along the way, he inspires you to overcome the preconceived notions of others, and to forge your own path to success.
