angry reader of the week: danny cho

Uh oh. Get yourself ready for another 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 comedian Danny Cho.

Who are you?
I am the loud-mouth, crass guy at the bar that women find appalling. I offend people both on stage and on videos.

What are you?
I used to be an obedient son with a "good" job but now I am just that dude that comes to visit every now and again and eats their food.

Where are you?
I am at my office in Ktown LA (cafe Mak). It's raining here and I am not too pleased about that.

Where are you from?
I was born and raised in East Los Angeles, My family was the only non Hispanic people in the district.

What do you do?
I am a stand up comedian. I travel the country and try to entertain as many people as possible. Lots of times, I just shock the hell out of them and eventually quite of few of them send me hate mail. I am also a writer. I recently wrote a script called Ktown Cowboys. We filmed it and will be released sometime in early march. It's a story about boys being boys on a typical night out in Korea Town LA. Think Entourage meets Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist. Also, I am writing my first book Tales of a Scumbag. It's a collection of stories about my life that shaped who I am today. You can find some of the stories on my website www.dannycho.com.

What are you all about?
I am all about being me. I feel that a lot of times, people have some pre-set view of what an Asian American entertainer should be like. I feel that there shouldn't be a mold. We need to have degenerates as well as great people. I tend to be more on the degenerate side. I am all about getting on stage and being completely myself. I don't pull punches. I used to work as a business consultant while doing stand up on the side. Eventually, something that was just a hobby, turned into more of a passion and I quit my job after 3 years. Although I am definitely at a lower tax bracket, I enjoy what I do.

What makes you angry?
I have a lot of things that make me angry. Here is a brief list:

*Namedroppers - Being in the entertainment business, I have realized that this phenomenon happens frequently. I think name dropping is very d-bag status. At least that is what Conan told me.


*People that ask me to tell them a joke once they find out I do stand up. I want to punch them square in their taints

*Sloppy Drunks. Nothing is more of a bonerkill than a girl that is a sloppy drunk.
