Woke Asian Guy and Egg White are the dynamic duo who try to discuss the brave new divisive world where people are too scared to offend anybody. We take on controversial subjects and try to break them down into a basic understanding of how we ended up in this emotionally gentrified place. Banter, beers and lots of shouting.

Woke Asian Guy and Egg White Ep 46: Edinburgh Fringe 2022 and Being Offended.
Wokie and Egg White talk about the Jerry Sadowitz incident in Edinburgh Fringe 2022 that was the talk of the town. Does this mean comedy is going backwards and does the word ‘Fringe’ need to be removed from the Edinburgh Fringe as it looks to be going towards safe comedy and moving far away from its roots. We chat it out so lend us your ears.ShownotesIn the 90’s Mark Thomas, in his TV Show Comedy product, drove a tank through McDonalds. That right. To give context he was the 90’s equivalent of John Oliver where he took a controversial subject usually about big businesses and broke it down comedically. Not taking anything away from John Oliver who is studio bound MAREK DROVE A COOL TANK TO GET A HAPPY MEAL!

Woke Asian Guy and Egg White Ep 44: James Corden and Comical Irony
We dispense with the scripted formula and riff on a wide range of subjects such as James Corden (again!), John Oliver and the politically incorrect landscape that encompassed Leigh Francis crying after making a career on political incorrectness and Michael Richard’s meltdown… Basically the fun stuff.
