The Asian Pacific Islander Cultural Center presents
The United States of Asian America Festival, featuring:

ATYPICAL: Stories from the anomalous Asian American

Short stories from seven not-so-textbook Asian Americans.  These comics, solo performers, and storytellers will challenge all that stereotypical crap we think of when we think "Asian" - from strict "Chinese" mothers to piano prodigies, from asexual men to bad drivers, from Lucy Liu to Maggie Q!  Throw that out the window!  

This show is decidedly NOT about how essentially, deep down, we're all the same on the inside.  On the contrary, these Asians are quite ... different ... from the rest of us.  

With live performances by:

    M O N I C A   B H A T N A G A R

    T H A O   P.   N G U Y E N

    V A N E S S A   L E E   K H A L E E L

And short films by:

Kamau Bell Solo Performance Black Belt," a distinction which to this date has been awarded only four times. Thao has produced such successful shows as "DIS-ORIENTED: A trio of Middle Eastern and Asian American women", "See Mom, I Didn't Forget!", "Best Feeding", "City Solo" and San Francisco's premier solo series, "Words First".
