In case you haven’t rented or seen this video, it is the FUNNIEST set of takes on Asian life in America you can ever have the privilege of watching. I did this promo for Steve and the gang a couple weeks before they were going to release it.
It’s funny for me because my name is distinctly German/Irish/European. You could almost say it with a distinct German accent and no one would be blink an eye. And after working with entertainers for years over the phone, I always get the same reaction when I meet them face-to-face for the first time: “Holy sh**! You’re not what I expected.” I’m so well spoken.
FYI. I’m half Asian. And I dig it. And yes…we DO all know Tae Kwon Do. Karate’s for Japanese. Everyone in the Kims of Comedy is Korean. And so am I. 🙂
