Laugh and sing your slippers off to give the mic back to Chinatown
Have you ever wondered what various Chinese diaspora really think about Chinatown? Well now you get to know with standup comedy!
We’re excited to partner with UniCome, a grassroots Chinese queer feminist collective, on the first standup comedy event at the Chinatown Memorial Plaza to Give the Mic Back to Chinatown.
Join us on tomorrow Sunday, September 17th from 2 to 5 PM at the Chinatown Memorial Plaza for an engaging program that features stand-up comedy performances in Mandarin, Cantonese, and English, an open mic session (you’re welcome to participate with comedy, poetry reading, storytelling or anything you want!), and karaoke. There will also be buns, beverages, and snacks for everyone!
