KIM KONG: A Comedy Monster
“Kim Kong: A Comedy Monster” is Eunji Kim’s epic journey all the way from Busan to Moscow to the lowest ranks of the Chicago comedy scene. In this frenetic, one-person show, Eunji recounts her father’s extraordinary immigrant story to become an ordinary American to highlight her own depressingly ordinary efforts to become extraordinary.
Eunji uses animation, storytelling, characters and mad beats to convey her voyage to become the world’s most successful and powerful Asian-American-Jew-show-biz-personality. "Kim Kong:” is truly a frightening comedy experience.
