Bad Asians: A Comedy Showcase
Presented by API Cultural Center, Bindlestiff Studio, and The Colossal Show on Saturday, August 9th, 2014, Bad Asians is featuring the baddest Asians of them all: Asian Comics.

“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, headlined by comedian Kevin Shea (seen on Comedy Central, HBO, Jimmy Kimmel Live) and hosted by The Colossal Show’s own Imran G and David Nguyen.

Bindlestiff Studio is about to break into some bad territory with frank, candid, and comedic discussions on what it is to be Asian in America...a “Bad Asian”.

Don’t worry. We won’t be in danger. We are the danger.
