EPISODE TWO: Season 6 Episode 9

Watch Former SF Resident Sheng Wang’s Fallon Debut


Though having had a Comedy Central half hour special as well as appearing on John Oliver’s NY Stand Up Show and Totally Biased, the very funny Sheng Wang hadn’t notched a late night set at one of the more traditional late night programs until now.

Watch his nicely done first set on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon here.



Stand Up: The Musical

Last year there were rumors going around about someone shopping/producing a musical for Broadway based on the world of Standup Comedy. Realizing this is a terrible idea, me and longtime friend Jason Saenz imagined what a musical about the life of a Standup comic would actually be like…

The answer is: petty, bitter, and wonderful.

This is a baker’s dozen of some of my favorite clips from Totally Biased. When we did these pieces, I truly felt like we were making the kind of TV that I wanted to see. Obviously everybody on the show isn’t visibly represented or mentioned here but they all contributed jokes and ideas to the pieces on this this list. (Get their names on IMDB.) And this isn’t even close to everything that I loved on the show, but as far as I know, there’s no such thing as a baker’s 37.

[We’re still reeling from the cancelation of “Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell”. It wasn’t just entertainment bent on social justice (that shit that I like), it was a beacon of hope of being trusted with a show built upon a long-forged identity and voice. It’ll be interesting to see where everything falls for the largely Bay Area crew, but in the meantime, the captain of the ship has given a behind-the-scenes retrospective on some of his ultra-biased favorite moments.]
