A cast member of Mad TV from 2001 to 2008 with memorable roles in Pineapple Express and Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle, Bobby Lee is — as he tells it — still a massive disappointment to his parents. Lee’s onstage imitations of his father are almost always variations on a single theme: that Lee is an unfunny loser. The caricature, hilarious as it is, is completely wrong. While impressions of immigrant parents are probably the most well-tread trope amongst Asian-American comics, San Diego native Lee’s hyperactive act, which focuses at least as much on his relationship problems and his life as a recovering addict as it does his Korean-born father, is personal, relatable, and — sorry dad — damn funny.
