Rosie Tran was oddly enough suggested by Rosie Tran fan, who has a thing for hot, funny Asians. Thanks for the tip…

A step away from the norm, Rosie is most successful as a comedian, although she does model and has acted in film and television as well as being a published author. She has accomplished a lot already and seems to have an admirable zest for life. Rosie’s parents were Vietnamese immigrants and she was raised in New Orleans before moving to California to pursue her career, where she now spends time on her podcast Out of The Box as well as various other projects.

    Rosie’s face is not quite my cup of tea but not unattractive. There’s nothing “funny” about that body! That shot of her bottom is like a dream.

    Ooooh Yeah!…and the hello kitty school girl too.

    These photos are pretty hot and she is funny as hell.

    I really like smart and kinda funny looking asian women with sexy bods.

    Neither her looks or her comedy do anything for me: her delivery’s fine, but her material is weak IMHO, and physically she’s just unremarkable.

    Dr. Lee,

    Her material is weak but then I’ve never heard a woman stand-up that I thought was funny. Her butt (from that one pic) looks great to me.

    Romanticwarrior,

    That’s what I’m saying she is pretty good for a female stand-up.

    You guys have a good point: now that you mention it, I’m struggling to think of a single good female stand-up myself. I wonder why that is?

    Dr. Lee,

    Rita Rudner is pretty funny, I have seen Judith Lucy do some pretty funny stuff, Denise Scott too. There are a few. I don’t particularly like Rosie’s comedy but sometimes American comedy can be a bit brash for my taste.

    Luke,

    Ah yes, thanks for reminding of Rita! For me, Judith Lucy is almost the opposite of Rosie: she does have some good material, but I can’t stand her delivery. I’m not familiar with Denise—I’ll have to check her out.

    Still, the fact remains that good female stand-ups are extremely rare—there’s plenty around these days, but for some reason I don’t understand, they just can’t seem to match men in this field. Indeed, there aren’t that many good female comedians, period. I’d better not express my opinion of most American humour. ;)

    I can think of quite a few non-Asian stand-up comediennes who are/were great, but as far as the Asian ladies …. there are several who are funny, but sooner or later (sometimes always), they all seem to resort to the “how-Asian-females-are-stereotyped-by-non-Asians” routine to elicit laughs. It’s often funny, but it does got old after a while, especially when it’s their whole act. Rosie here doesn’t seem to rely on it too often.

    I may hear a woman stand-up say something clever or insightful but I have never had one put me in tears, holding my sides and rolling on the floor laughing so hard I’m thinking I’m about to stroke and I’ve heard A LOT of comics in my years. Many of the new crop like Sarah Silverman think all you have to do is come out and say “vagina” or “penis” for a laugh or something sure to offend religious types – usually something about Christians and/or Jesus. And the ethnic thing is almost always a non-starter with me. When a stand-up says “a Mexican/Asian/etc. would do it like this...” CLICK Just rarely ever find it funny.
    This may sound chauvinistic but men are just funnier than women. I have no answer as to why.

    Actually I find the whole race thing when it comes to stand up comedy to be so overdone and stale.

    If the comedian is of color, then you can bet your house that the routine will feature jokes/commentary on the race of the comedian. How many times have you heard the “difference between white folk/black folk” schtick?

    Or a bunch of crude sexual situations/language and F bombs galore. It takes real talent to be a truly good comedian, that doesn’t rely on cursing.

    Dr. Lee,

    At least we know how to spell humor properly!

    Dr. Lee,

    Haha, I’m taking an online management course through the University of Reading in England, and I think they really don’t like the letter z. Organisation, characterisation, etc. Not to mention centre. As they say, two countries separated by a common language.

    You guys are being really judgmental. You can’t really rate someone’s stand up comedy on a youtube video? Live performances are best. Her podcast is very good, though.
