What's up, good people of the internet? It is time, once again, 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 Will Choi.
Who are you?
My full name is William Choi. Most people call me Will. No one calls me Liam. I wish people would.
What are you?
I'm no Angry Asian Man, but I think I'm more a Passive-Aggressive Asian Man.
Where are you?
In my apartment, listening to The BQE by Sufjan Stevens, ignoring the fact that it's past midnight, debating if I should try to finish this now or wake up early to do it.
Where are you from?
Grew up on the mean streets of Cerritos, CA. Went to college in Riverside, where I got a degree in something I can't remember. Now living the dream being broke in Los Angeles.
What do you do?
I do way too much improv with my teams: RJP / Miss Golightly / Totally Heather / Cold Tofu Improv. I'm a producer of The Comedy Comedy Festival. Co-host of The Drunk Monk Podcast, where Keiko Agena and I watch Monk and get a little drunk in the process. I'm also a co-host of the upcoming Korean Drama Podcast with Phil Yu and Joanna Lee! You'll see me pop up in a couple Buzzfeed/web things here and there. I also take decent photos on Instagram.
What are you all about?
Balancing the fine line between staying humble and being confident.
What makes you angry?
You mean what makes me passive-aggressive? When Asian roles in TV and film get whitewashed. But it's like, that's kind of not cool but I guess if you think it's a good idea then it's like fine, whatever, do what you want to do... Oh, and good luck with that.
