Last season, Fox had very few successful outcomes. While we had high hopes for their newest multi-camera comedy Dads, the excitement may be short-lived. The comedy stars Seth Green and Giovanni Ribisi playing childhood friends (now in their thirties) whose lives are flipped upside down when their father’s decide to move in with them. The cast will also include one of our favorites, Brenda Song.
Unfortunately, the pilot preview fell short of our expectations. Aside from a few laughs, the preview began sounding problematic with Brenda Song forced into a schoolgirl outfit and performing a stereotypical “school girl laugh” in hopes to appease Chinese businessmen. We let out communal sigh of disappointment as this is followed by some racial comments played off as humor.
We can only hope that this was merely a poorly edited trailer instead of overly-used jokes about Asians. Check it out for yourself:
This is the kind of genre that Ha Ji Won is meant to do: she’s undoubtedly one of South Korea’s best female action stars. I’ve always enjoyed her in comedies more (there’s something about her that shines through in comedic type roles). In the first teaser trailer for The Huntresses, she plays the leader to a trio of bounty hunters, set in the Joeson Era. Kang Ye Won (El Condor Pasa) plays the housewife who’d rather use her kitchen knives for fighting off bad guys and Son Ga In (of Kpop girl group Brown Eyed Girls) plays the youngest member, the best fighter of the the three. The movie comes out in May, but hope this teaser trailer will hold you until then!
Actress Reena Dutt decided to sing a parody in honor of Seth McFarlane’s Oscar skit “I Saw Your Boobs” – check it out and tell us what you thought of it!
Check out our behind the scenes video of Mindy Kaling’s Audrey Magazine cover shoot!
What did you think of the photos from the shoot?
I think Joy Osmanski is one of the most talented comedic actresses around (no, she’s not bribing me with chocolate cupcakes everyday — just every other day).
This hilarious video of our favorite quirky gal palling around with the guys from National Film Society kinda makes us giggle. A lot.
We hope you enjoy as much as we do!
Before Youtube and other online mediums accessible for comedians to publicly showcase their talents, there was the self-starting way of spending years developing material in clubs and building appearances in coffee shops and on school campuses. Korean American comedian Margaret Cho is one of those self-starters.
Described as the pioneer woman of Asian American comedian, Cho launched her own successful career as one of the first Asians in standup comedy.
Her latest stand-up concert film, Cho Dependent, recorded during her 2010 tour, made its debut on October 15 on the Showtime Channel. Cho Dependent shows Margaret in her usual top form, riffing on smart topics that actually matter. The DVD is set to be released on November 21, 2011 via Rocket Science, and will also feature Behind The Scenes backstage bonus footage from the tour.
As the Agent Provocateur of stand up, Cho is undoubtedly a woman of many laughs, however, she is also a woman of many hats. In addition to her comedy, Cho is a fashion designer, actress, author, and recording artist. Cho Dependent showcases songs from her Grammy nominated album interwoven into the thought provoking stories she tells.
“I’m really in love with this show as it’s the first time I got to bring my comedy and my music together. It was the hardest I have ever worked on anything, and I had such an amazing time on this tour,” said Cho. “I wanted to film in Atlanta because the city has become an adopted hometown for me and I think that could be felt in this performance. It was amazing to come back to the south and bring something I was so proud of to share with all my friends!”
Ah, we’re so close to August! If you’re worried that your summer has wasted away, and are looking for some cool events to go to, I’ve got you covered. For those of you who like to see up-and-coming artists or are looking for a few laughs, this week’s lineup of events is just perfect for you. I’ve got some sultry music, traditional drumming, comedy acts and some improv acts.
A Celebration of Asian American Soul
When: Friday, July 29, 9:00 pm
Where: Far Bar Little Tokyo, 347 E 1st St., Los Angeles, CA
How: $10 with RSVP, $15 at the door
Listen to sultry music by Judith Hill (Michael Jackson’s This Is It) and singer/songwriter Dawen, and schmooze with music producer Trebles and Blues. The event is a fundraiser for Asia Asia Pacific Arts, a cool nonprofit online Asian American arts and entertainment magazine. DJ O-Dub and DJ Phatrick will be on hand to set the mood as you guzzle down some drinks (Hey, it’s a Friday night, you can let loose a little.)
I’ve spent the last week-and-a-half vegetating on my bed, staying up all night from the adrenaline rush I get from the gore and suspense of Dexter. Now that I’ve aced through all five seasons, I have nothing to occupy my now TV-addicted brain. (Whomp Whomp).
Fortunately for it (and maybe not so fortunately for my job hunt), summer has just started, meaning MORE TV!
We got life coaching from a canine, robots in America, and… sexy lawyers. All for you, this summer.
Because Audrey Magazine is a small publication, we rely on the kindness of our many artsy friends and interns to contribute their talents to our team. And they’re so cool, they’re off creating other cool stuff when they’re not creating cool stuff for Audrey. Cool, huh? Here are where a few of our contributors are up to in their (limited) spare time.
Olivia’s Spring covershoot was just as fun as the celeb herself. From singing Disney tunes in the dressing room to dancing to 90′s hip hop, Munn kept our spirits up with her endless streams of LOL quips. The photos are gorgeous (as you already saw) but the video’s even more awesome! (Cause Olivia talks and moves and her hair blows in the wind and stuff) Check it out below:
