What I liked

Paul’s research shines through his use and knowledge of Asian American history through creative use of iconic superheroes, exposing how the perception of this group has been reduced to stereotypes in the entertainment industry.

What I didn't like

There is not a thing I would change. Perhaps a longer show in the future?

My overall impression

Paul’s show is combination of personal and cultural experiences that brings the struggles of Asian-Americans to light. His presentation is unique, compelling, humorous and incredibly imaginative. Paul’s research shines through his use and knowledge of Asian American history through creative use of iconic superheroes, exposing how the perception of this group has been reduced to stereotypes in the entertainment industry. This show was an eye opening experience that I hope will create the opportunity for a dialogue, sparking the much needed change in Hollywood for Asian Americans and other people of color.
