Model Minority: An All-Asian Comedy Show


MODEL MINORITY is a standup comedy showcase featuring local comics of the Asian diaspora. Asians are the most underrepresented in comedy which is a fact you will forget about for this one night.

MODEL MINORITY is produced by Stephanie Nam, a standup comedian and artist. She produces shows under NAM NAM Productions including MEN AREN’T FUNNY, JUST A PHASE, and MODEL MINORITY that highlight underrepresented identities in comedy and THE QUEER AGENDA, a live dating show.

Stephanie is known for her dry humor and wet pussy. She is a capricorn sun, scorpio moon, and lesbian stereotype rising. She lives with her cat in Seattle. Stephanie’s standup has been described as “unexpectedly funny” and “awkwardly charming” and “something I’ll remember for the rest of my life” and “the funniest thing I’ve ever seen.”

This is a hate free space. Racism, sexism, homophobia, classism, transphobia, ableism, colorism, fatphobia, xenophobia, etc. will not be tolerated and all performers agree to refrain from such material.
