Asians

Tweet I get a haircut every month. I do so in order to control the beast that is my hair. If I let my hair grow out, it’ll spreads in all directions- and not in a hip fro or a cute Howie Day-like ‘do. I’m talking full-on Wolverine status. I’m talking hide yo’ kids and yo’ […]

Tweet My parents pay special attention to my dating life. I don’t know if it’s because I’m the only one among my three siblings that has never had a “Facebook official” relationship or if it’s because I mostly keep my parents in the dark when it comes to that part of my life. One time […]

Tweet So after my previous post I proceeded to waste my time looking up other Vietnamese related humor clips and I eventually found my way to this: It’s no surprise that the Idol franchise has spread to many different countries, I just didn’t realize it had spread to Vietnam.

Tweet I’m not Mongolian, but I could pass for it right? I mean I’m not really white but I pass for that all the time. The Going Out Gurus over at Washington Post just posted about some movie auditions for the next M. Night Shyamalan film which will be a trilogy based on the Avatar: The Last […]

Tweet Living in the DC area for a couple of years now has certainly turned me on to politics and current events. It’s the bug everyone gets when they move in. As much as I could see myself working in the government I don’t think I’ll be running for office anytime soon- but you never […]

The Cho Show

by Patrick on August 26, 2008

Tweet I enjoy Asians comedians. It’s weird when you think of an Asian comedian- definitely not the line of work most Asians choose. But it’s people like Dr. Ken, Henry Cho, Bobby Lee, Steve Byrne, Kevin Shea, and even Dat Phan that make me feel that even I can be funny. However we cannot forget […]
