For a night full of laughters, Bubble and I headed to the Comedy Zone. Tonight show’s headliner is Michael Yo with opener Nick Guerra.
To be honest, I didn’t know who Michael Yo was … until about a week ago when I stumbled across a Groupon deal. (I may have a slight addiction to Groupon….particularly the Things To Do section, hehe!) His bio describes him as “the half black brother with a Korean mother.” Cool! A Blasian!
Unaware of what to expect, we showed up way in advance and were lead to a table at the very front of the stage. We weren’t quite sure if this is great we got front row seats or this is bad that we will most likely be incorporated in the acts. Well, we..I did get called on. #almostfamous
The comedy club manager opened the night with jokes about dating on Tinder. Women inspects every picture a guy posted. If he wears a hat, then he must be bald. Men, on the other hand, look at pictures and be like ‘I’ll do her’, ‘I’ll do her’ and NO. LOL!
Next up, Nick Guerra. With shoulder length ashe brown hair, his opening line about his ‘lesbian’ physique cracked the audience up. The best joke he told was about the women’s 3 stages of drunkenness. First stage is bossy. Second stage is horny and third is sleepy. Once she hit horny, you may have 2 hours or 20 seconds until sleepy hits. The room burst into laughter! Women know it is the truth and men couldn’t agreed more. With his usage of body language (droopy eyelid and sleepy movement), the audience loved him. He was definitely a surprise treat to this show! 🙂
Finally the headliner, Michael Yo, appeared on stage. He first tested the audience by asking the black audience to shout, a loud roar responded. Then he asked for where his Asians at..AKA me.., a tiny squeal came. He asked for the Latinos and one proudly represented. He jokingly skipped over the white folks because ‘they are everywhere’. LOL! Interracial comedian playing the diversity card, fair enough.
He spoke of stories about his family and his growing up. He poked fun of Asian stereotypes like how Asians don’t like to say names, but rather describe people’s physical attributes. Like how his mom refer to big boy little feet came over instead of calling him Billy. Or how she named their family black furred dog, Blackie. Time for dinner, Blackie! Hahah! I laughed so hard I was getting an ab workout! The stories were so genuine and hilarious, I am a new fan of him for sure! 🙂
Bubble and I had a blast tonight! I even got to meet Michael Yo later on! 🙂 YO!
