7th Annual Asian Comedy Night – featuring OPM IV: Return of the Chung King

Here's a message sent to me from my friend Joyce Lam, producer and president of Vancouver Asian Canadian Theatre. 

Asian Comedy Night is a great way to celebrate being Asian Canadian, by
sharing a common mind set, poking fun at stereotypes of Asians,
Asian-Canadians, White-Canadians, etc.  I have attended various
incarnations of ACN over the years, and many of VACT's
productions.  They give great insight to the Asian Canadian psyche
and identity.

Your white boyfriend or girfriend, says she just doesn't understand your Asian sense of humor?  Bring her/him down!

Your Asian girlfriend or boyfriend says they want to be more sensitive and supportive of Asian issues?  Bring him/her down!
