Atsuko Okatsuka’s Web Series
Ceda Xiong’s Stand-Up
Ceda Xiong is fire and if you haven’t seen her perform live yet, you should really make it happen. She tours all over the place, so it shouldn’t be hard to experience the talented writer/comic in your lil neck of the woods.
It’s no secret that we’re obsessed with Connie Shin’s comedy. The writer/performer is truly one of a kind and you should watch all her work immediately – as soon as you’re done watching her do the low key news.
Ali Wong: Hard Knock Wife
Duh, of course we had to include Ali Wong’s new special. If you haven’t watched it yet, please drop whatever you are currently doing and get on Netflix. It is absolute gold.
Bad Appetite with Jenny Yang
You might already know about Jenny Yang’s stand-up. But did you know about her amazing parody series Bad Appetite? It skewers whitewashed Americanized versions of food from non-white cultures by turning the tables, and making extra nasty versions of yt people food. It’s disgustingly funny.
Number One Son’s Improv
Sierra Katow’s Stand-Up
Mark our words – a year from now Sierra Katow will be all up in your tv. The hilarious (and shockingly young) stand-up comic is juuust about to break, and you’ll want to be there when she does.
Sweet and Sour FM
A podcast about being Asian American made by two sisters who are also best friends? Oh you know we’re subscribing. Katie and Nicole interview rad guests and share their experiences, and it’s mega funny.
Good Muslim Bad Muslim
Taz and Zahra discuss important topics like the experience of being Muslim in America and also the glory that is Magic Mike Live. You know, the pressing issues of our time. They’re both truly hilarious people, and this podcast has us loling with every episode.
Aparna Nancherla’s Stand-Up
If you don’t already know about Aparna, we just don’t even know what to say. She’s the greatest, and while she’s better known in some circles for her Twitter, we’re frankly obsessed with her stand-up too.
