Picture Submitted


A hit at the New York Fringe Festival last year, and now a hit concert film, Happy Lucky Golden Tofu Panda Dragon Good Time Fun Fun Show is an edgy take on multiculturalism from two good Asian Girls gone Bad-Ass.

It’s about race and represents Asian: identity politics, bowl cuts, Chinatown, nail salon paradoxes, Hello Kitty hats, gay pokemons, math nerds, street vendors, those gold cats with waving arms.

Slanty eyed mama is an iconic New York based “Nuyorasian” punk rock spoken word duo, featuring electric violin by Lyris Hung and comedy by Kate Rigg.

Slanty Eyed Mama’s previous comedy/music mashup “Birth of a nASIAN” was invited to the Smithsonian Institute in Washington DC and was filmed for Comedy Central’s online portal.

They have performed PBS, Comedy Central, Pacific Time TV, LA Grand Performances, LOGO TV colleges and Festivals internationally.

Kate Rigg is a stand up comic who was the comedy correspondent on “The Dr. Phil Show” for 3 seasons and created the hit show “Dance Your Ass” off for Oxygen TV. She has done stand-up on Showtime, Comedy Central, NBC Late Friday, PBS and many more.

Lyris Hung is a violinist who has played electric violin with Bono, Jay-Z, Trans Siberian Orchestra, Toshi Reagon, Suzanne Vega, Bryan Adams, and now tours regularly with the Indigo Girls.
