“Charismatic…Guillermo’s life is one worth exploring.”–DC Metro Arts

“Was this standup, a monologue, a rant? …Enjoy trying to keep pace with Guillermo’s brilliant mind.” –Orlando Weekly.

“Excellent…Emil Guillermo knows how to tell a story and that ability sets “Amok Monologues” above other solo shows.” –San Diego Story

Sorry to say, I’ve been pre-occupied watching sports as an antidote to our constitutional crisis.  (Go Warriors! Go Sharks! Wake up,Giants!)  That and teaching college kids.

Also working on a new iteration of my “Amok Monologues.” It’s coming to Washington, D.C. in late July!!! Ticket info coming.

Sounds like a good time to book me for an east coast swing.

Oh, and while Emil Amok’s Takeout is still available wherever you podcast (check it out on Spotify, iTunes, Castbox, etc.),  each week there’s a new The PETA PODCAST !

Emil Amok’s procrastination tool: A mini-podcast!

And this is one about a vegan Filipino restaurant in the Bay Area.

Emil Amok—Emil in a minute or so. He says what’s on your mind and his!

 

You can shove the big yellow thing off the pancake and use a light dousing of the maple syrup to limit calories.  These are the ube pancakes at Nick’s on Grand, a legit Filipino VEGAN place.  Weekends only for the pancakes (served with vegan bacon). Check out the vegan lechon and vegan sissig! Fat still an issue. But no animal fat. You’ll get all the Filipino flavor without the cruelty. Worth checking out if you’re near South San Francisco.
