I’ve seen the Warriors perform twice and plan on never missing one of their shows in the future. They’re smart, naughty, edgy, scrumptiously silly and I am eternally grateful to them for teaching me all the things I always wanted to know but were afraid to ask about the Asian male body. Ignorance is not bliss. To sample their mighty comedy, take a look at some of the videos clips available on their MySpace page like Video Dating, A John Woo Family Dinner and my absolute favorite: The Slow Asian American Film Festival. Or go to Little Tokyo tomorrow to see a screening of the Emmy Award winning documentary “Mighty Warriors of Comedy.” The Warriors will be there!

“18 Mighty Mountain Warriors and the ImaginAsian Center present the Los Angeles premiere of the Emmy winning documentary “The Mighty Warriors of Comedy!” produced by Kibi Anderson and Sung H. Kim.
Using a combination of personal interviews and live concert footage, “The Mighty Warriors of Comedy” takes a look at the members of this innovative all Asian American comedy troupe from the Bay Area as they struggle for success and deal with the ups and downs of life. They’ve been “Up and Coming” since 1994, but will that change as some of them make the move to Los Angeles? They’re trying to sell out but will anyone buy?

Thursday, July 17 @ 8pm at the ImaginAsian Center, 251 S. Main Street, LA, CA 90012 in Little Tokyo.
