What is Asian, Not Asian?

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

Asian, Not Asian has received the highest accolades in the form of write-ups, social media shoutouts, and naughty DMs by outlets such as Vulture, Hyphen, The Slant, PAPER Magazine, and Banana Magazine.
