Asiansploitation: The Text Generation

Asiansploitation brings “Sketch Comedy with a slant”
to the George Ignatieff Theatre with an all-new show!

Asiansploitation: The Text Generation explores the virtues and tragedies of our digital age.

Leave Captain Kirk and his crew at the edge of the universe and join the troupe behind the Toronto Fringe hit Asiansploitation Spanks the Tiger as they bring their unique “slant” on sketch comedy back to the George Ignatieff Theatre.

Asiansploitation: The Text Generation features all-new material that will take you on a comedic voyage of cosmic proportions. The crew will “engage” your funny bone as they tackle a broad range of issues from the beautiful drudgery of a morning commute to our culture’s dependency on technology and the deliciousness of Asian sauces. You’ll see the Cookie Monster reveal a life-changing secret, George Takei meet his son and you’ll see what every Trekkie would die to see – Data falling in love. If our flight path holds true, you might even spot the elusive Space Shark. Step into Asiansploitation’s world as our capable crew entertains with new scenes, audience-influenced scenes, and several new signature song parodies. Set your phasers to funny as you assimilate into Asiansploitation: The Text Generation!

The six-member writer/performer ensemble includes Byron Abalos, Gene Abella,
Lana Carillo, James Cheng, Franco Nguyen and Jeff B. Santos.
At the helm of the show is Second City alumnus, Andrew Currie.
“Asiansploitation do shows that are quite simply brilliant. They are comprised of [sketches] that are high-energy, fast-moving, wickedly intelligent and absolutely hilarious.”
Mooney on Theatre’s George Perry
