Local creative Bryan Li moved here to attend the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. And, like so many others, he fell in love with the Queen City. After a successful career developing restaurants (Pisces and Open Rice), Bryan has embraced a new creative passion – improv comedy. ⁣

Most recently, he’s taken on a role as a community leader by accepting the position as the Board Chair of Charlotte Is Creative. Get to know him below.⁣

If you want a great meal, come eat with us @OpenRiceCLT. We specialize in Cantonese cuisine such as the Cantonese roasted duck, double pan-fried noodles and, of course, everyone's favorite, THE BUBBLE WAFFLE! ⁣

And, if you want to have the best time laughing, come to one of our comedy improv party @ImprovWithHugs. It's an unscripted, 90-minute audience interactive comedy performance!⁣

2️⃣ 𝗛𝗼𝘄 𝗱𝗼 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝘄𝗮𝗻𝘁 𝗽𝗲𝗼𝗽𝗹𝗲 𝘁𝗼 𝗳𝗲𝗲𝗹 𝘄𝗵𝗲𝗻 𝘁𝗵𝗲𝘆 𝘀𝗲𝗲 𝘆𝗼𝘂𝗿 𝘄𝗼𝗿𝗸?⁣

Make what makes you happy. I want people to feel joy when they see my work. I want to inspire people, if you have an opportunity to put a smile on someone's face, don't pass it up.⁣

3️⃣ 𝗪𝗵𝗮𝘁 𝗮𝗿𝗲 𝘆𝗼𝘂𝗿 𝗯𝗶𝗴𝗴𝗲𝘀𝘁 𝗰𝗿𝗲𝗮𝘁𝗶𝘃𝗲 𝗰𝗵𝗮𝗹𝗹𝗲𝗻𝗴𝗲𝘀 𝗿𝗶𝗴𝗵𝘁 𝗻𝗼𝘄?⁣

None. I love what I do. When customers leave our restaurant smiling … when audience members leave our show laughing … it's the best feeling in the world and that feeling is what keeps me going.⁣

I love everything that is happening. The Charlotte creative community has all the crucial ingredients to succeed as a whole – the positive energy, the support for each other, and the collaborations between artists. It's about togetherness and that mindset will take this community to wonderful places.⁣
