He­len Hong sub­verts the stereo­type

Pasatiempo - - Random Acts -

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.
