win the mighty warriors of comedy dvd

Check it. Sung H. Kim's film Mighty Warriors of Comedy was recently released on DVD. It's a documentary about the wacky, heralded Asian American sketch comedy troupe 18 Mighty Mountain Warriors, following their struggles to fight the good fight, have their voices heard and keep it real on the comedy stage. It's a well-made documentary with great insight on Asian Americans in performing arts, from people are in thick of it, making it happen for themselves. Good stuff. The film recently won a Northern California Emmy for "Arts/Entertainment - Program Special." The DVD also includes "Hatest Grits"—all the skits from the Warriors' "Best of" show, and a 16-minute documentary on 18MMW's comrades in the struggle, Partner's in Crime. It's available for purchase from the good folks at the Center for Asian American Media.
