Happy Lucky Golden Tofu Panda Dragon Good Time Fun Fun Show   (USA) 85 min, Dir: Kate RiggLyris Hung

 East meets west in this live stand-up comedy, sketch, and rock n' roll-spoken word concert film centered on Asian American tropes in Western Culture: immigration, bowl cuts, math nerds, the model minority myth and Hello Kitty everything. Starring comedian Kate Rigg and the electric violin fueled poetic punk duo Slanty Eyed Mama. #badass #comedychicks

Meet Slanty Eyed Mama: two good Asian girls gone bad-assed. Virtuostic electric violinist Lyris Hung (who has also played with Jay-Z, The Indigo Girls and Bono) and Comedian/Actor Kate Rigg (who appeared on 3 seasons of the Dr. Phil Show, and recurred on Fox's Family Guy).  Their collaboration started as students at NYC's Juilliard school where they  experimented with rock n' roll, comedy and spoken word. Invited twice to the Smithsonian, featured on PBS, LOGO, Pacific TV, and headlining major music and comedy festivals they are a force to be reckoned with! It's outrageous political comedy filmed in cabaret spaces, laundry mats and nail salons around New York directed by comedic actress and award winning director Carrie Preston.

Director  bio:  Carrie Preston directed the feature film “That’s What She Said”,  which had its world premiere at the Sundance Film Festival and NY Premiere at Soho Intl Film Fest!  She executive produced and starred in James Vasquez’s “Ready? OK!”, which played over 50 film festivals and won numerous awards. She has also directed the Webseries Darwin and The Dodie Show in which she also stars and writes.
A celebrated actress, Carrie played sassy southern waitress Arlene Fowler on the hit HBO series “True Blood” and the quirky genius lawyer Elsbeth Tascioni on CBS’s “The Good Wife”, for which she won an Emmy Award in 2013. She also recurs on “Person of Interest” and is currently starring in the new NBC comedy “Crowded”.
