Q&A with Comedy HK

What is the comedy scene like where you’re from?
I’m from Boston, which has a well-established comedy scene. Lots of standups came from Boston, like me. Also Louis C.K., Conan O’Brien, Jay Leno, and Stephen Wright but I don’t’ think that’s relevant.

I didn’t start performing until I came to Hong Kong. I’m extremely excited about it.

What pre-show rituals do you do to get ready to perform?
Mostly freak-out. I see other people practicing their jokes, punching the air, and doing other things that must be useful. I sit on a chair and worry a lot.

Which competitors are you most looking forward to watching?
I like Jim Brewsky and Sean Hebert. There are probably a lot of other people who are awesome I haven’t seen yet and I’m super excited to learn more about the new HK comics.

What can the crowds expect from you in this years competition?
Hugs, undying friendship, and free cocaine if you vote for me.

Who would you like to see in the 2014 competition who did not make the final lineup?
I guess Chris Rock since I didn’t see him on the list. I wonder what that guy is doing.

Looking forward, what are some of your comedy goals for 2015?
Write a lot more. Perform more. Figure out what I really want to say. There are lots of things that I find funny but communicating them so other people find it funny is a real challenge.

Come on out and see Yalun Tu compete on Saturday September 27th at 9pm at TakeOut Comedy.  See the full list of the 2014 competitors on Comedy HK

Q&A with Comedy HK

What is the comedy scene like where you’re from?
I love Hong Kong’s growing comedy scene. When I started, it was just a handful of us, and now there are at least two handfuls! I generally perform once or twice a week.

What pre-show rituals do you do to get ready to perform?
Caffeine… and more caffeine. I always run over my bits at least once out loud. I am pretty sure I look like a crazy person on my way to the club.

Which competitors are you most looking forward to watching?
Honestly, there are a ton of great new acts coming up this year. I am looking forward to them all.

What can the crowds expect from you in this years competition?
Mostly new material, take it or leave it!

Looking forward, what are some of your comedy goals for 2015?
My goal is to stand out a bit more… either that or to change my name to Tamby Chan.
