Talkies LA. Part 1 & 2. (via willscovill)

thecolossalshow:

“Bad Asian” is term used to playfully and condescendingly describe when an Asian person fails to live up to preconceived notions of what it means to be Asian. Not being a doctor/lawyer/engineer – bad Asian. Not grabbing a stack of napkins for your glove compartment – bad Asian. Eating vegan tofurkey – very bad Asian. The Colossal Show: Bad Asians will be featuring the best local stand-up comedians who will be covering a range of ideas and topics; from introspective contemplations of what it means to be a good person to rants on why Snow White was the worst Disney movie. Comics being featured will be second generation Asian Americans with differing backgrounds and upbringings, but somehow share some very specific commonalities due to their cultural lineage. After each performance, the comic will be interviewed by the host about their experience of being Asian in America and what makes them a “Bad Asian”. The show will be a frank, candid, and comedic expression and evaluation of the Asian identity. The show will feature David Nguyen, Imran G, other local comics as well as Comedy Central’s own Sheng Wang.

Thanks for an awesome 2013! not over yet… we still have Karen Kilgariff and crew on the 27th and our regular saturday show on Dec 28th.

[Aside from being a regional native, an unrivaled critical darling, a mid-1990s SF comedy luminary, unapologetically unflappable in her career trajectory , and unencumbered by the politics of modern show business, Karen Kilgariff is absolutely hilarious. It’s amazing that she’ll be performing in SF’s cradle of indie comedy, and it’ll be deplorable for you to miss this show and call yourself a fan of comedy that matters. Do not sleep on Karen Kilgariff.]
