Didn't know about Kevin until I saw the listing on Goldstar. Checked out his website, thought he was funny and decided to attend. Wasn't disappointed. His routine is very racial, very "blue" and very funny. He did a lot of the bits shown on the YouTube clips posted on his website (like the one about his Google friend who's a billionaire now and the "Would you suck dick for $1M?" routine, which were still funny, but other material as well, which was equally funny He engaged the crowd up front (which is always a risk when you sit close up at a comedy club) and the funniest interaction was with an Asian woman (with a very loud laugh that Kevin kidded her about) who was with a white guy. Of course, Kevin commented on the fact she was with a white guy in a room filled with Asians (like about 99% Asian) and (to paraphrase) she said: "He doesn't count. He's French." Like being French didn't make him white. I didn't get that and Kevin didn't get that either. Hilarious! Definitely a must see, whenever he's in town.
Kevin was originally born in Seoul, Korea and in January of 1981 he was adopted and sent to America to live with a middle class Irish family in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.
After moving to San Francisco, Kevin started his career doing stand-up comedy and open mic shows around town. Not trying to become the typical Asian comic Kevin strayed away from Korean accents based on their mothers'.....plus his mom is a honkey. He concentrated on developing his own style that has said to be very laid back and fresh. With his unique style and jokes, he caught the eyes of Hollywood and was invited to the prestigious Montreal Comedy Festival.
Kevin has numerous television appearances, which include Comedy Central's Premium Blend, Jimmy Kimmel Live, and HBO’s Down and Dirty. Most recently he was the winner of 2009 NBC’s Stand Up for Diversity Showcase. He was given a talent deal and showcased at the 2010 NACA National Conference, where he went on to book over 75 college dates.
