Why Unwashed?

I've been working in media and television for the past 10 years and have been performing stand up for the past two.  After realizing I kept posting articles and bothering all of my friends about whitewashing and the lack of visibility for Asian Americans in media, I figured I should bother them even more with this show and ask them to pay for at least two drinks. Thus, Unwashed Comedy was born. 

We've hosted top Asian American comedians including Ronny Chieng (Daily Show), Aparna Nancherla (Comedy Central), Joel Kim Booster (Conan), Hari Kondabolu (TruTV), and Bowen Yang (High Maintenance), as well as, up and coming Asian American comics from around the country.
