We’re FAWKing back!
The Ordway in partnership with the Knight Foundation's Opportunity Fund presents Funny Asian Women Kollective (FAWK) for another night of no-holds-barred comedy. FAWK was founded by award-winning artists Naomi Ko, May Lee-Yang, and Saymoukda Duangphouxay Vongsay to combat the invisibility and dehumanization of Asian American women. They use comedy to talk about controversial issues like race, misogyny, white supremacy, and sex. This year Naomi, May, and Saymoukda will be joined by some special local and national guests.
FAWK first performed at the Ordway back in 2019 to a nearly sold-out crowd where audience members raved about the show. But don’t take our word for it.
“So great! You all are edgy!!! Far beyond anything in Walker Art Center’s Out There Series!”
“My cheeks still hurt from laughing so much. Y’all really fawked the stage up!”
“This show was the answer to so many things! Thank you all so, so much!”
“What a super night at the FAWK Super Show! I have never ever experienced anything like it before. Funny Asian Women Kollective brought the community together with comedy and laughter!”
“Y’all were like an all Asian women SNL cast but way funnier!”
