Funny

See it if you like asian american issues mix w/comedy. Good vibe, great standup act/sketch. Genuinely funny lady.

Don't see it if you are tired of as-am issues w/comedy. Trust me, as asian I've seen so much it can get overdone even for me. No groundbreaking moments here

Ambitious, Clever, Edgy, Raunchy, Profound

See it if you like provocative comedy about race / spoken word. They do comedy songs and stand up and it's pretty unusual. The violin was amazing!

Don't see it if you don't like dirty jokes or spoken word things. It's pretty out there (in a good way) A good late night show.

Clever, Delightful, Entertaining, Edgy, Intelligent

See it if you like your rock and stand-up with a strong dash of feminist Asian POV, you enjoy politically pointed cabaret in a variety of forms

Don't see it if you can't stand loud music [pity!] or you don't want to buy a drink and join the festivities.

Theatre is Easy
August 20th, 2016

"Provocative both in band name and show material, Rigg and Hung head an hour and twenty minutes of hilarious characters, stand-up comedy, video installations, and musical numbers that all deal with conceptions of 'Asian-ness' in the United States...It’s not superfluous or flashy for the sake of flash. What Rigg and Hung are getting at here is something much more meaningful than a few laughs at an imitation voice of an old Asian woman."

Theater In The Now
August 25th, 2016

"This show is effortlessly entertaining. Rigg provides an evening of crude humor, stereotypes, and uproariously comical songs with Hung on electric violin. Though the curation of the evening may not flow perfectly from point A to point B, the fun is at a high throughout. And that's why we're there…In the end, 'Happy Lucky Golden Tofu Panda Dragon Good Time Fun Fun Show' is pure enjoyment performed by veteran performers. It's guaranteed to make you laugh."

The Huffington Post
August 15th, 2016

"There’s an embarrassment of riches in her (and collaborator Leah Ryan’s) dissection of our modern world—if anything, a show overstuffed with brilliant wordplay would be even stronger with some pruning that allowed its moments of emotional impact more air to buoy the heady ride. Clever songs and incisive commentary showcase Rigg’s lightning-fast intellect; still, it’s the poignant turns with characters yearning for a foothold in a world that has no place for them that linger, move and sting."
