Comedy show takes on racial, ethnic differences


Press release here:

Racial stereotypes, ethnic clichés and culture differences will be at the forefront on October 9 as the Lexington Avenue Brewery hosts one of North America’s most entertaining multicultural comedic showcases, The Most RACES Show on Earth! (MRSOE!).

MRSOE! is a stand-up comedy show that examines racial and ethnic differences through the lens of laughter. After selling out numerous venues in Canada and the United States since 2005, MRSOE! is embarking
on its first tour across the southeastern U.S. The show in Asheville is one of 16 stops.

“The Most RACES Show on Earth! helps us to better understand one another. The barriers between cultures cannot be easily dissolved; sometimes it’s actually the shock value of a lot of the jokes that
inspires people to start thinking. The more we realize our differences, the more we are the same because we all laugh at the same things,” says Neil Bansil, creator and producer of MRSOE!.

This show features a rotating cast of seven funny and edgy comedians
from various ethnicities including: Noah Gardenswartz (Jewish-American
– 2012 Bay Area Comedy Competition Semi-finalist); Mia Jackson
(African-American – Writer for 2011 BET Soul Train Awards); Viet
Huynh (Vietnamese-American – 2009 Southeastern Funny People Search
Winner); Daniel Tirado (Polish-Peruvian – Montreal’s Just for Laughs),
Landry (Jamaican-Canadian – 2012 World Series of Comedy Winner), Rob
Haze (African-American – Laughing Skull Lounge); Trixx
(Ghanaian-Canadian – NY Comedy Festival); and Neil Bansil
(Filipino-Canadian-American – Creator MRSOE!).

The Most RACES Show on Earth! takes place on Tuesday, October 9, at 9:00 p.m., at the Lexington Avenue Brewery. Tickets are $8 and are available at the door. A portion of the proceeds from each show will
go towards the YWCA Stand Against Racism initiative. For tickets, visit or visit the Lexington Avenue Brewery at 39 North Lexington Ave.
