Misbehavin' was the recipient of a grant from WYBE (one of
Philadelphia's PBS stations) to bring some of our stage
pieces to television.
The result is our
first video, directed by Anula Shetty and Michael Kuetemeyer
(Termite Television Collective,
www.termite.org), which features standup comedy, spoken word, and two of
our most well-known sketches:
"How to Spot
Asiaphiles" -- an infomercial to help Asian women figure out if the
man in their lives harbors a secret Asian fetish, and
"Sweet & Sour" --
an ultracondensed feature film, in which an American crashes in an
Asian rainforest to search for his comrades, but finds love
The video aired on
WYBE-TV during the Summer of 2006. We are currently applying
for a grant to make our second video.
We are also working to make a DVD of our
video available on the internet -- more details to follow!
