I’m One of Complex’s 25 Funny People Who Should Get Their Own TV Show!

Holy recognition!  I am so stoked to be one Complex.com’s 25 Funny People Who Should Get Their Own TV Show!  What an awesome shout out – and some of my fave comedians are on there as well, including Kristen Schaal, Aziz Ansari, Hannibal Buress, and Skinny Bitch Jesus Meeting.

They had such nice things to say about me:

Kwok uses her instrument to create a charming veneer that allows her to talk about race and sex in a deceptively frank way you don’t often see often enough.

Aww, shucks!

Panhandler Party on the NYC Subway!

My friend Gary Mahmoud put together this amazing video called Panhandler Party:  one part improv, one part sketch, one part prank – all caught on hidden camera.

Check it out – it just gets better and better ;)

Also, we were featured on CollegeHumor.

Spike Lee Vodka and Orient Apple Vodka: It’s the Same Vodka!

OK, Absolut – what happened here?

Last summer, you did a “Spike Lee Collaboration” and created this delicious ginger/apple-flavored Absolut Brooklyn:

Spike Lee's vodka.

THIS summer we have a “new” Absolut vodka called Orient Apple:

Asian people vodka.

Whoa.  IT’S THE SAME THING!!!

Brooklyn = Old Boy?

Apparently, Spike Lee + Oriental flavors = Product co-opted by the Swedes for mass consumption:

White lady slays the dragon.

WTF – JORDANA BREWSTER?!  The chick from Fast & Furious?  …because she was in a movie with Asians in it?

I can’t wait for a line of Tyler Perry-designed gongs at Ikea modeled by Eva Mendes (Fast & Furious 2).

C’mon, Absolut!
