Best Rising Stars of Improv

Y'all We Asian

When Austin's first Asian American improv troupe opened a new show at ColdTowne Theater this year, the title Starring Y'all We Asian was a riff on the show's theme that Asians are done with Hollywood whitewashing and sidekick roles; they're ready for their close-up, Mr. DeMille. But the truth is that the troupe is star material and rising fast. In just two years, YWA has played regularly at ColdTowne; hit the Out of Bounds Comedy Festival locally and the Del Close Marathon in NYC; snagged a B. Iden Payne Award for best new improv troupe; and been a finalist in the "Best of Austin" Readers Poll. Their references are equally smart whether it's Asian culture or pop culture, and Y'all We Asian always leaves audiences wanting more.
