Mouth to Mouth: MOM MIC
Friday, July 15, 2011, 8PM
In response to the recent media coverage about Amy Chua’s polarizing Tiger Mom, Mouth to Mouth: MOM MIC will feature the real stories and voices of Asian American moms. Blending comedy, spoken word, hip hop, and stand-up from Kate Rigg, who Bust Magazine calls “hell bent on exploding Asian stereotypes,” will have you out of your seat, and actress, writer, and mom Natalie Kim will entertain you with selections from her solo comedy show.
Come early to sign-up to share your own mom-inspired stories. Whether you are a mother, have a mother, know a mother — we want to hear from you! Free admission if you are a mom (or if you bring your mama)! Stay-tuned for details about the second installment of Mouth to Mouth: MOM MIC, taking place on August 12 (Thursday).
