Minority Retort – ThreeWeeks Edinburgh Review

Sometimes traditional formulas work the best. After all, there is a reason they are traditional. Jason Chong’s set was nothing extraordinary; it was just plain funny. He began by explaining his national identity – Australasian – and what his heritage meant to him. Race jokes ran close to the line, but the skilful wording kept Chong on the audience’s good side. He told tales of his parents, his girlfriend and moved onto random bits about ethnicity and the film ‘Transformers’, where some clever props and a guitar were used. By merging anecdotes of humorous circumstances and jovial reflection, Chong has crafted a near-perfect piece.
