singles, matchmaking, and stand-up comedy

Everyone knows that dating in the big city is complicated. But it shouldn't be painful. This is a fun New York Times story on Helen Hong, a television producer and standup comedian who has come up with innovation for singles: speed matchmaking. To be more precise, it's speed matchmaking for singles in the audience of a comedy show: Get a Laugh? She Also Wants to Make a Match

Helen herself does some of the matchmaking, right there in front of a packed room full of singles. She just finds people who look like they should be together, cracks a few jokes, and makes a match. I guess she's just trying to un-complicate things and make it fun. If it doesn't work out, it's not the end of the world. I sense a possible new trend across the Asian American singles scene!
