Emil Amok! More shows coming….

Hey Amoks!

I am amok in Honolulu doing some private shows, but coming back with more versions of my Amok monologues soon.

In the meantime, you know I haven’t been silent.

Catch my columns on the Asian American Legal Defense and Education Fund blog… 

And on my  @emilamok Twitter feed on this page!

And listen to me on the PETA Podcast.

Crazy times, ripe for Amok!

Impeachment notes:

–Gordon Sondland should have been on that bus with Trump, not Billy Bush. That would have made quite a tape.

— Best witnesses? Loved Lt. Col. Vindman’s uniform. But Dr. Fiona Hill made the hearings seem like “Masterpiece Impeachment.”

–Devin Nunes has no clothes.

–Ask Jim Jordan why he couldn’t get so worked up about pedophilia and wrestling at Ohio State?

–Don’t lose sight of basic questions; Can a president do what he wants without checks or balances? Is the power of the presidency absolute?  You know what they say about absolute power….

See you on stage soon!

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 !

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.
