Funny Asian-American Ladies

Let's be clear - I know funny.

I've been watching stand-up comedy since the days of Comic Strip Live! in the 80s. I dated one of the best stand-up comics in Boston and saw hundreds of shows in the best comedy town in the nation. My bar is set sky high when it comes to stand-up and there are very few comedians in Los Angeles that have made me genuinely laugh.

So I was a little skeptical going into Dis/orient/ed Comedy last Saturday, an all Asian-American female stand-up show produced by my friend Jenny Yang. When you're talking Asian-American female stand-ups, only two have really made me laugh ever - Margaret Cho and Amy Anderson.

Boy, was I in for a treat --

The evening started with a happy hour and community mixer with some of the organizations that co-sponsored the event --

And then the show began.

HOLY S*#T. These ladies were FUNNY!

Ten comediennes in the line-up, each one more hilarious than the last. A solid, solid show! Clear, unique voices, total confidence on stage, and funny, funny jokes. Seriously, if you missed this show, you missed out!

They're taking the show to Seattle next - hopefully they'll do an encore show in Los Angeles. Congrats Jenny - the show was a hit!
