About Me:
Kristina Wong was named "One of the Seven Funniest Eco-Comedians" by Mother Nature Network. Her last solo work-- "Wong Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" looked at the high rates of depression and suicide among Asian American women. It's now a broadcast quality DVD that has been acquired by university libraries nationwide and soon will be available for private home use (www.flyingwong.com). Her new show, "Going Green the Wong Way" looks at the trials and tribulations of sustainable living and plays Bootleg Theater June 28-July 22, then goes to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival August 2012. She's been a commentator for American Public Media's Marketplace, PBS, Jezebel and Playgirl Magazine.

Favorite KCET Show:
Departures
My KCET.org Activities
  • Entry
    I consider the George Holliday video of Rodney King's beating and the subsequent news footage of the L.A. Riots to be my first American reality show. Instead of an elimination ceremony, ring ceremony, or final weigh-in, it was the acquittal of four police officers.
  • Entry
    Meet two Angelenos -- a Bus Riders Union employee and an actor -- who survive Los Angeles without a car. People ask me all the time how I survive, and insist that I will "die" without a car. And to them I say, "Meet two of my Asian Americans friends who don't even have driver licenses!"

  • Entry
    When I first moved here two years ago, I was spooked by the stories of K-town's crime rates, grit, and messy urban aesthetic. But now, I've come to love it -- abandoned couches, police helicopters, and all.
