Angry Reader of the Week: Randall Park

"My favorite comedy happens when really dumb things are made by really smart people."

Heeeyyyy everybody! It's that time again. For the last time this year, it is time to meet the Angry Reader of the Week spotlighting you, the very special readers of this website. Over the years, I've been able to connect with a lot of cool folks, and this is a way of showing some appreciation and attention to the people who help make this blog what it is. This week's Angry Reader is Randall Park.

Who are you?

I am Randall Park. My family and childhood friends call me 'Randy'. My friends from college call me 'Moose'. And my wife calls me 'Superman.' That last one was completely made up. It is absolutely not true.

What are you?

I am a father, a husband, a son, a friend. I am an actor, a writer, a filmmaker. I love my family, my community, my city, I love Mexican food, a good bourbon, and I am an avid fan of rap music. My favorite rapper is this guy named MF Doom, who performs with a mask on. Sometimes I wish I could do my job with a mask on, but I was once told by a top industry executive that a big part of my brand is my "beautiful face." Okay, that is a complete lie. I just want you to like me. I am so sorry.

Where are you?

I am in Los Angeles. In my humble opinion, the best city in the world.

Where are you from?

I was born and raised in Los Angeles. In my humble opinion, the third best city in the world. (It is rapidly getting worse.)

What are you all about?

Whether it be through acting or writing or making shorts for the web, I'm all about storytelling. I love comedy in particular. My favorite comedy happens when really dumb things are made by really smart people. But I also like when really smart things are made by really smart people (see: Hari Kondabolu). I'm all about enjoying my work, coming home, and enjoying my family and friends. I'm all about trying my best to be a loving, compassionate, and kind human being to everyone including to myself. This may sound cheesy, but I'm also all about various types of cheeses. Sorry, that was dumb.

What makes you angry?

I get angry when people devalue the lives of other people. Especially when they kill these other people while they're unarmed. I get infuriated when people victimize children. The American Music Awards fills me with rage. Oh yeah, and cyber terrorism is also pretty lame.
