I wasn't expecting to love it, but it was definitely entertaining. Brian Lee from Mad TV pulled the production together and did a good job selecting the other 3 Korean American comedians. I was concerned they'd all have the same schtick on family and parents, but they all brought their own style to the show.

The humor centered a lot on race and sex, but that's not so surprising - there's a lot of humor to be had on that front. The last two comedians seemed to have more experience and material than the second, but the deleted scenes were a riot and definitely worth viewing as well. Overall, I thought it was good to see some new faces to Asian American comedy.
