Emil Amok Live on stage? Yep, at Frigid NYC, Feb. 16-March 4. Click here for ticket info. It’s “Emil Amok: Lost NPR Host Found Under St.Marks.”

It’s my show about an Asian American Filipino’s absurd journey through American media, culture, and Filipino American history. As my dad would say, “It’s all pucked up.” The new iteration of Emil Gullermo’s “Amok Monologues” at Frigid.NYC. See it live, in person. Or get a livestream ticket.

GET YOUR TICKETS HERE.

It’s the secret history of the Filipinos in America. Funny, Sad. Real. An American historical comedy!

See what critics said about Emil’s one-person plays…
