EMIL AMOK—LOST NPR HOST FOUND UNDER ST. MARKS, AND OTHER STORIES Play 2023 FRIGID Fringe Festival

Journalist, podcaster, and former NPR host Emil Guillermo-winner of an American Book Award-takes his truth to the stage in a comic one-man show about race, the media, Asian American Filipino history, Harvard/affirmative action, and PETA.

Emil Amok Guillermo has performed his "Amok Monologues" at Fringe Festivals around the country. His shows are inspired by his weekly "Emil Amok" columns in the Asian American ethnic media since 1995. See them at www.aaldef.org/blog. He also hosts "The PETA Podcast," and "Emil Amok's Takeout" at www.amok.com. He appears in "The Conductor" at Theater for the New City in March.

FRIGID Fringe Festival is an open and unjuried theatre festival that gives artists an opportunity to let their ingenuity thrive in a venue that values freedom of expression and artistic determination. In true support of the Indie Theater Community, 100% of box office proceeds go directly to the artists whose work is being presented. FRIGID is here to chill out the New York independent theatre scene's ideas of what a fringe festival can be! www.frigid.nyc
