Who the hell are you guys?
Fumi Abe and Mic Nguyen are 2 hilarious lone wolves who miraculously found each other in the outskirts of the New York comedy scene. They first tried to assassinate each other because everyone and their mother knows that there is only room for one Asian comedian in the world. After several heated battles, the fight quickly came to a stalemate. After that, the two went off to the nearest bahn-mi joint for a quick lunch break. That's when they came up with the perfect way for TWO Asian comedians to co-exist in the world- form an ultimate comedy duo. The rest is history, and by history, I mean that they both work day jobs and meet a few times a week to rock out creatively. 

What is Asian, Not Asian?
"Asian, Not Asian" is a weekly podcast with hosts Fumi Abe (MTV) and Michael Nguyen (Someecards, NBC News). Our elevator pitch is this: Two Asian guys not from Asia talking about American issues no American cares about.

And because we’re actual stand-up comedians, we have the strong kind of POV and confidence that are normally reserved for suburban moms eating at TGIFridays.

Why do we need your help?
We want to continue making this podcast better with every episode. To do this, we need your help! While we’re all about providing free content, our ultimate goal is to build a larger sustainable platform- help us go corporate!

Your contributions will help us achieve the following:
  • Rent an actual studio space!
  • Book more prominent guests!
  • Hire more staff to do recordings outside the studio!
  • Get an intern!
  • Develop other fun things (videos, books, and goodies like that)
  • + more!

How does Patreon work?
Patreon makes it super easy for you to make donations to the show! Think of this as subscribing to Netflix or Spotify, but instead you get to hear us roast Asian moms and Panda Express. Sounds dope, right?

In exchange for your hard-earned CASH, you can get different rewards. These range anywhere from a special shout on on the podcast to a secret Facebook Live show reserved only for our #1 fans.

No pledge is too small! Every dollar counts!

Can I listen to the podcast without supporting?
100%. The latest episodes are ALWAYS free on iTunes and various podcast streaming websites and apps.
