*gasp* AUG 27-30 IM ORGANIZING AN ASIAN AMERICAN COMEDY FESTIVAL

WHAT WAS I THINKING?

Well. I wanted to pull together all of my favorite Asian American comedic talent! So our amazing friends at Angry Asian Man, Tuesday Night Project, Kollaboration, Artists At Play, The Always Summer Project, and venue sponsor the Japanese American National Museum joined forces with us at Disoriented Comedy to start the first-ever THE COMEDY COMEDY FESTIVAL: A COMEDY FESTIVAL! Ohhh yeaaaah. So many awesome shows but the big show is on Saturday, August 29th, 8:30PM at the Tateuchi Democracy Forum at JANM in Little Tokyo Los Angeles!

It's the 3-Year anniversary show for Disoriented Comedy! Yes! We are 3 years old and have produced over 40 comedy and storytelling shows throughout the country! 

Here's the thing: We have 2 surprise standup up comics who are basically OUR S/HEROES! You can probably guess who they are...(wink wink) but we cannot publicly advertise it. Just be sure to get your Festival Passes for Saturday to ensure seating! http://comedycomedyfest.com!

But I was hungry and had too many thought swirls. 

I left to get a cappuccino and black sesame donut, and write this thing on my computer at Cafe Dulce right now. [continue reading]
