Following up the uproarious standing-room-only success of "Scarlett Johansson Presents: AAPI Heritage Month," you are invited to Scarlett Johansson Presents: Opening Night of Doctor Strange! (With a Brief Lesson in Chinese History by Matt Damon) -- another fine evening of comedy and trolling.
No, Ms. Johansson will not be appearance (nor will Mr. Damon), but this comedy show -- not coincidentally timed with the release of Marvel's Doctor Strange -- will actually feature some funny, kickass Asian Americans, including Sheng Wang, Jiavani Linayao, Stir Friday Night and Voltron: The UCB Superteam.
It's happening Friday, November 4 at UCB Sunset's Inner Sanctum Cafe. Here are more details:
Scarlett Johansson Presents: Opening Night of Doctor Strange! (with a brief lesson in Chinese History by Matt Damon)
On November 4th, 2016, Marvel's Doctor Strange premieres. On November 4th, 2016, Scarlett Johansson Presents: Opening Night of Doctor Strange also premieres. Why not watch a show that actually features kickass Asian-Americans?

a character monologue from JIAVANI LINAYAO (Champion of Nerdist's Erotic Fan Fiction Competition)

Would you like to help the show? Will is hoping to raise $100 to pay for a photographer, videographer, and props. Please consider donating a dollar or two by Venmo-ing Will (@willschoi) and labeling it as "Scarlett". Any amount is greatly appreciated.

Again, you gotta respect the next-level trolling involved with calling your Asian American event "Scarlett Johansson Presents..." Forget Doctor Strange -- you can catch that shit on your next plane ride. If you're in Los Angeles and looking for something fun to do on November 4, this is the place. Admission is free!
