What I liked

Graphical backdrop worked well with the show; seamless transitions between personal narrative + superhero stories; Paul used the entire stage and kept the audience engaged the whole time

What I didn't like

.

My overall impression

It was an interesting way to express what many minority groups are experiencing in the US. He cleverly wove his personal narrative into the re-imagining of classic superheroes in a way that was effective, humorous, and relatable. It was great to see Paul bring so many different characters to life in the span of only an hour! I would definitely recommend this show to anyone interested in seeing a unique perspective about Asian American identity :).
