Default Dad’s Like Kim Jong Il on ‘MADtv’

BY LING LIU, Dec 02, 2005


Bobby Lee says his mom voted for George Bush in the 2004 presidential election because she thought Bush’s hard-line attitude toward North Korea could stop Kim Jong Il from kidnapping her son.

“If he kidnapped me, I probably wouldn’t be able to escape,” jokes Lee, who may be best known for his impersonation of the North Korean dictator on Fox’s MADtv. “If I met him, I wouldn’t say anything — I wouldn’t want him to kill me!”

Lee says he didn’t need to do any research on Kim. His inspiration came far closer to home: his dad. “It’s basically the same guy,” he explains. The rest he learned from popular culture. “I found out [Kim] loves The Matrix. I like his fade — his MC Hammer hair.”

But Lee feels that the West misunderstands Kim Jong Il because of a lack of information. “I think he was born into a situation where he has to commit to an ideology. If you or I were born into that situation, we would probably do the same thing.”

Lee was born in 1972 and grew up in San Diego, Calif. His immigrant South Korean parents owned several clothing stores.

“When my dad got here, he worked three jobs,” Lee recounts. “I mean, I’ve been fired from every job I’ve had! Americans are just different — they’re lazy.”

That culture clash was particularly sharp for Lee, who did not excel academically. “Every once in a while, you hear about that Korean kid who goes bad — I was that kid,” he recalls.

He never completed his degree and became addicted to crystal methamphetamine. Eventually he got into a rehabilitation center.

He started waiting tables in San Diego and hung out at the Comedy Store. On open mic nights, he started telling jokes about his family. In 1995, he was spotted by comedian Pauly Shore, and ended up opening for Shore’s Las Vegas show.

That started Lee’s path to success that’s been unusually smooth. He performed on NBC’s Late Friday and Comedy Central’s Premium Blend. When he appeared on The Tonight Show, his parents started to pay attention. “They were like, ‘What the f*ck?!’” Lee jokes.

In 2000, after making it through seven rounds of callbacks and beating out hundreds of other comedians, Lee became part of the MADtv cast.

Now in his fifth season, Lee is introducing two new characters. One is an especially effective feng shui director. “Like if I move a lamp, people get pregnant,” he says. The other is an Asian boy who’s been adopted by “country western people.” His Midwest parents “just tell him he has Down Syndrome,” Lee says.

But Lee’s talent is not limited to MADtv. His first major film debut came in Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle, playing eager-to-please Kenneth Park. He’s also done an episode on HBO’s celebrated Curb Your Enthusiasm, and has a role in the upcoming drama Undoing, starring Kelly Hu, Russell Wong and Sung Kang.

In a business where thick skin is required for survival, Lee has proven resilience. “I’ve heard things like, ‘He’s a horrible example of Asian Americans, he’s not funny, his Connie Chung act is not funny,’” he says. “I’ve been criticized my whole life. I don’t give a f*ck — it’s just a sketch show.”

... if someone can post the pic of bobby from that article, that'd be great- my right click capabilities are limited here at work.

Maybe his sketches will be more spread out now which I think is good because I think he is awesome in small doses. I used to kinda really... dislike everything he did prety much but now I'm starting to find him funny.
Look for Bae Sung comming up this week though.

In the clip they played for Bobby, Aries said "I'm from the streets of New York" and Bobby says "he's from Chicago, not New York!"

He also refers to the fans of MADtv as a "loyal cult following of 12 year old mexican girls."

After thinking about it for a few days, I think Aries should have left the series a few seasons early maybe around 2002-2003 because he clearly overstayed his welcome.

Chung, Povich to Host Weekend News Show

Connie Chung and Maury Povich will be united on-screen for a weekend news show produced by the co-creator of Comedy Central's "The Daily Show," MSNBC said Monday.


Chung, the former CBS newswoman, has been inactive since CNN pulled the plug on her prime-time news show in 2003. Her husband is in the eighth year as host of the syndicated daily talk show "Maury."


The new program, which doesn't have a name yet, is described as a look at the week's headlines, from politics to pop culture, and will have guests. It's the first time Chung and Povich have worked together on a national news
program.


MSNBC said the two hosts will "cut through the spin and get to the truth, exploring all sides of a story as only two people who have been married for 20 years can do."


Lizz Winstead is the executive producer. She is the former head writer for "The Daily Show" in the pre-Jon Stewart days and was the host of Air America's "Unfiltered."


The show will air four times over weekends on the third-ranked cable news channel, the first time at 10 a.m. Saturday. It will debut on Jan. 7.


"Maury's been on my case to get out of the house and get back to work, but I didn't want to until he came up with this idea," Chung said. "The question is not whether the program will last. ... The question is, `Can our marriage
survive?'"

The only reason Aries beats up on little guys is probably because they're the only one's whose ass he can actually kick......


If Aries and his fake "thug" image actually tried kicking the ass of someone bigger than him...........He'd lose.....the pussy that he is

The scheduled performance of comedian Bobby Lee, who is well known for his act and his appearances on Mad TV, at the Activity Center on Saturday night drew in students, relatives and alumni.

The noted performer and his opening act were late, leading to a well-meaning member of BCA attempting to distract the audience with trivia questions and the chance of getting a front-row seat. The comedian who was slated for the opening act took over after the BCA spokesman was heckled off of the stage.

The opening act only served to infuriate audience members already frustrated by the delay of the expected performance. Nick Yosseff began with a volley of jokes about the hazards of air travel, which failed to raise much laughter from the audience. He then proceeded to discuss the war in Iraq, earning a small scattering of applause for some of his views. The hecklers began to call out at this point, and the comedian failed to respond in a witty and timely fashion, instead spending time on a tangent about one heckler's inebriated girlfriend. When the comedian moved on to his views on President Bush, the crowd got even uglier, with numerous people calling out for him to leave the stage and several of the alumni present walking out of the Activity Center. When a portion of the crowd began chanting for Bobby Lee, the comedian expressed disbelief. The act culminated in the Assistant Director of Student Activities, Tina Blake, asking him to introduce Bobby Lee and leave the stage.

Lee immediately began singling out several audience members for some good-natured teasing. As his act progressed, the atmosphere of hostility built up by the opening act dissipated, and soon the majority of the audience was laughing uproariously at Lee's jokes. The humor tended towards the implications of Lee's ethnicity and his stern father, with a smattering of dirtier subject matter, including a discussion of various strip clubs around the country, thrown in. One student was brought up to the stage after making an incomprehensible comment, and was revealed to be in possession of a small flask, as well as inebriated. Lee convinced ERAU Security not to take any action.

Lee's finale involved him bringing three students up to the stage for a strip show. One man served as an impromptu strip pole, while the other served as the announcer and the music system. The girl was the subject of Lee's dance. After taking a name for the imaginary strip club, "Asian Persuasion," and a stage name, "Cinnamon," from the audience, Lee darted off stage. When the announcer signaled the beginning of the act, Lee came back on to the stage wearing only leopard-skin print briefs. Hilarity ensued.

Lee wrapped up the act, and then came back on to the stage to mollify those calling for an encore. He told two jokes, and then finished for the night, leaving many people satisfied that their time had not been completely wasted.

Is it just me, or is Bae Sung a rehash of Ms. Swan but much worse? Kind of sad because he is asian but he does terrible asian impressions.
