Helen Hong subverts the stereotype
Helen Hong wears many hats, most of them humorous. She regularly travels the nation performing stand-up comedy, acts on television shows and in movies and commercials, and moonlights as a dating coach. Onstage, Hong subverts what she calls the “cute little Asian girl” stereotype by incorporating a healthy dose of lewd material into her sets. Her 18-and-over event at Skylight (139 W. San Francisco St.) on Sunday, Jan. 25, comes with the disclaimer that some material may be inappropriate for younger audiences. The show, part of the Skylight Goes Bonkerz! comedy series, begins at 7 p.m. Tickets, $10 to 15, are available at the door and from www.holdmyticket.com. Call 505-982-0775. — L.B.
