Happy Lucky Golden Tofu Panda Dragon Good Time Fun Fun Show
The coolest Asians you know, who brought you cult hit Kate’s Chink-O-Rama:featuring the Chinkorama dancers & the Smithsonian show Birth of a nASIAN & the band Slanty Eyed Mama have an all new show which is now also a major* feature film directed by kick ass power director/actor Carrie Preston who took the live show to the streets and created a comedy, electric violin, spoken word, sketch, standup mashup to bring our take on race and represent-Asian to the world.
Warning: Strong Language. Political Commentary. Hello Kitty. Puns.
The Show: East meets West in this combo of stand up comedy, electric violin, rock n’ roll, spoken word and characters from iconic New York comedy and music duo Slanty Eyed Mama. It's a variety special from the Amerasian point of view on politics, bowl cuts, Chinatown, nail salon paradoxes, Hello Kitty hats, gay pokemons, math nerds, street vendors, those gold cats with waving arms. There's a 40 year old Asian cheerleader, a burnt out genius performance artist in a laundry mat, a race-undertermined / age-unknown subway vendor with big dreams under her umbrella-hat.
All the Music is by Slanty Eyed Mama: A rock n’ roll spoken word duo featuring electric violin, samples and beats by Juilliard virtuoso Lyris Hung and comedic, political, lyrical wordplay from one of new york’s most celebrated solo performers (and fellow Juilliard graduate) Kate Rigg. They are two good Asian girls gone bad-assed.
This show features songs like “MODEL MINORITY”, “WHITE GIRL PROBLEMS”, “BOWL CUT BLUES” and “THE HELLO KITTY SONG”. Their previous comedy music show “Birth of a nASIAN” was invited to the Smithsonian Institute and shot for Comedy Central’s online portal. They have been seen on PBS, Comedy Central, Pacific Time TV, LA Grand Performances and now in the movie version of Happy Lucky Golden Tofu Panda Dragon Good Time Fun Fun Show is on the festival circuit in 2016 for general release in 2017.
