Asiansploitation Spanks The Tiger

I never wanted mom to see me like this…”

Prorogation! Volcanoes! Werewolves! The year of the tiger has been misbehaving and needs to be spanked. Your friendly neighbourhood comedy troupe is here to offer their services with a helping hand.

Ever witness a turf war between realtors and same-sex couples? Ever wonder what granny does home alone on the internet? How about learning open-heart surgery in four, easy, one-hour installments? Now take the worst possible roommate, multiply that by pi, and raise that to the power of the universe. You get the picture.

So dust off your sandals/crocs/loafers/chucks/pumps and head over to Asiansploitation’s brand new comedy revue. Bawdy. Decisive. Uplifting. Knee-spanking, chest-hurting fun. Reach for the tissue, ‘cuz Confucius says it’s going to be one messy, unpredictable year. Let Asiansploitation be the hug that makes it all better.

Asiansploitation is thrilled to celebrate its 5th annual revue, ASIANSPLOITATION SPANKS THE TIGER, on the Toronto Fringe Festival stage. Second City alumnus, Andrew Currie, guides this young ensemble of actors, writers, improvisers, and musical theatre performers to push the envelope in their newest show.
