- Tina Kim
Former television news reporter and anchor Tina Kim moved to the United States when she was four years old and grew up in Seattle, Washington. She is the youngest of four children and graduated from the University of Washington with a broadcast communications degree. "I wanted to be on tv and the only Asian woman I saw on tv was Connie Chung."
- Amy Anderson
Unlike her name, Amy Anderson is originally from South Korea. She was adopted and raised by Swedish people in Minnesota where her inevitable comedy career took flight. She spent six years in Minneapolis as a comedian, actor and writer before fleeing to sunny Los Angeles. Amy has an extensive background in theater, improv and sketch comedy and somehow managed to obtain a degree in classical music.
- Suzanne Park
Suzanne Park is a Korean-American comedienne who was born and raised in the foothills of Tennessee, where cow-tipping is fun for ages 3 and up. She began her stand-up career in NYC in October 1999. After only 6 months of performing on stage, she entered in the 2000 Boston Comedy Festival Standup Competition, where she was a semi-finalist and a runner-up.
