Welcome to aaronjho.com!

Welcome to the official site of sitcom writer, poker player, and proud cat owner — Aaron Ho!

If you’d like to know more about me and the work I’ve done, please take a look at the “About Me” section.

Feel free to browse around and leave comments.  If you’re interested in reading one of my writing samples, I encourage you to go to the “Contact” section and reach out to me or my lit managers.  Enjoy!

Setting sail on “Fresh Off The Boat!”

To quote Eddie Huang’s childhood heroes…

“Persistence and consistency is the best thing. As long as you keeping it real, and you keep trying, keep banging that wall and it will fall.”
-The Notorious B.I.G.

“Happy are those who dream dreams and are ready to pay the price to make them come true.”
-Tupac Shakur

“If I were a painter, you’d be calling me Shaqcasso.”
-Shaquille O’Neal

Okay, maybe forget that last quote. Onto the big news… I am thrilled to announce that after years of hustlin’, I am joining the writing staff of “FRESH OFF THE BOAT!”

As a comedy writer and the son of Chinese immigrants, working on FOTB is a dream come true and I look forward to keepin’ it real for all my yellow fellows out there, both on screen and off.

Be sure to tune in Fridays this fall on ABC!

Congrats to the 2019 CAPE New Writer Fellows!


This article is about a week old, but I just wanted to congratulate the eight writers admitted into this year’s CAPE New Writers Fellowship.

About ten years ago, CAPE helped me launch my writing career and I am forever grateful. I remain a huge supporter of CAPE and encourage anyone reading this to also become involved (especially if you identify as API or enjoy telling their stories).

Also, thank you CAPE for the shout-out in the article, glad to have my name associated with such an amazing organization. Keep up the great work!

“I Have A Show!” – WGA Panel

I’ll be speaking on tomorrow night’s WGA panel all about pitching, developing, and selling original pilots. If you’re a WGA member, I invite you to attend — you should have received an e-mail in recent weeks with an RSVP link.

Look forward to seeing you all there and dropping some knowledge… Or I’ll just nod along with the smart things other panelists say and enjoy a free bottled water. Whatevs.
