The Bad Asians Show
Bad Asians is a Bi-Coastal showcase featuring Asian comics doing stand up, being interviewed, and colorful commentary on current events and culture. This month’s featured comedians: Yoshiko Watson YouJean Chang Brian Park Hosted by David Nguyen & Josef Anolin “Bad Asian” is a term used playfully and condescendingly when an Asian Pacific Islander (API) American person fails to live up to preconceived notions of what it means to be Asian. What is a “good” Asian, and what is a “bad” Asian?” How “bad” can you really be? Resisting these tropes of obedient sons and daughters who grow up to be doctors/lawyers/engineers, these API comics are NOT in the “model minority” business. They are in the entertainment business (and perhaps there’s nothing more “heinous” than that). Your best course may be to tread lightly around this line-up of hilarious provocateurs and troublemakers.
