"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."
"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."
"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."
