Mighty Warriors of Comedy
I explored the film Mighty Warriors of Comedy as a component of my final research paper. I thought that I’d share some clips since it was so well done and the humor was so on point. The film follows a comedy group based in San Francisco. Their mission statement is as follows: “As artists and activists, the group seeks to explore and articulate images of Asian Pacific Islander Americans alternative to what has been perpetuated in the mainstream media. One of the group’s strategies is to push the envelope as comedic performers in both style and content, as well as to break down prevailing stereotypes and promote more positive images. Much of the group’ s impact lies in its lack of hesitation in lambasting the Asian American community itself as well. Almost all the faces of Asian America are represented, including Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Thai and Filipino backgrounds, allowing the group to represent a wide range of cultures and perspectives.” via 18mmw.com -Bailey
