Wednesday night, Korean comic Joel Kim Booster performed stand up on Conan. He explained the weirdness of his name- and his background. He also has a few surprises- busting cultural, gender and sexual stereotypes wide open. Conan’s audience went crazy for Joel, and rightfully so.
Joel has been killing in Chicago clubs for the past few years, and we just recently caught two of his shows at Chicago festivals. He was one of our favorite performers at Second City’s 2nd Annual Break Out Festival, and in the same weekend was also invited to perform at the A.V. Club’s 26th Annual Comedy Festival. We also just reported today that he was invited to perform at Denver’s prestigious High Plains Comedy Festival this year. Keep an eye on him on Twitter @IHateJoelKim.
