A new version of the full hour show! Coming to Orlando May 16-25!
This is the 90th year of my father’s arrival to America!
And they said:
“The Filipinos are coming! The Filipinos are coming!”
And they were. And they did. Now you come.
And if not, bring me to your town, school, barrio, point-point joint!

Here’s where you can see me go amok .
For East Coast folks, I’m bringing “Amok” to Baltimore’s Charm City Fringe Festival, Nov. 4, 5, 11, 12.
Lots to do in Baltimore. Go to Little Italy. Then head to the Bromo Arts district and see a Little Filipino show.
The Amok Monologues are my stories told live taken from the columns I’ve written and my experiences as a an American Filipino growing up in the U.S., and working in the media.
It’s funny, tragic, provocative personal history.
An American Filipino story.
Come and by and go “Amok.” And if you can’t make it, contact me and I’ll bring it to your city!
I’m giving a storytelling workshop and performing an excerpt of my “Amok” monologue, “All Pucked Up: A short history of the American Filipino,” at the Filipino American National Historical Society conference in New York City on June 24.
Read about it here, on my blog post on the Asian American Legal Defense and Education Fund site.
Also, I reflect on Vincent Chin, 34 years later.
