Friday, Oct.5, 2012 – Tickets on Sale Now!
Racial stereotypes, ethnic clichés and culture differences
will be at the forefront on October 5 as the Bongo After Hours Theatre hosts one of North
America’s most entertaining multicultural comedic showcases, The Most RACES Show on
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 Nashville 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
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), 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 Friday, October 5, at 8:30 p.m., at the Bongo
After Hours Theatre. Tickets are $10 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
