Asiansploitation Rocks *TWO* Festivals In November!
Asiansploitation, Toronto’s Premiere All-Asian-Pacific Comedy Troupe is eager to head your way in the month of 2007. We’ll pile out of any elevator and trample over anyone to bring you our brand of Asian comedy!
Why are we so eager? Well it’s because we are thrilled to be a part of not one but *TWO* Toronto festivals in November! Two festivals??!?! How is that possible? How will Asiansploitation do it?!?! Will they ride atomic-powered rickshaws from one festival to another? Will they teleport from one to another like Hiro from Heroes? The only way to find out is to check them out yourselves at both amazing festivals. It all takes place between Tue Nov 13th and Sat Nov 17th 2007 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
