Happy birthday to Bobby Lee, who turns 37 tomorrow! We wish him a lavish day spent basking nude in the warm Los Angeles sun, lounging atop a very soft bearskin blanket, eating grapes hand-fed to him by a bevy of beautiful Jungle Asians while “The White Album” plays gently in 5.1 surround sound on a spectacular set of Martin Logan speakers.
Or a really nice dinner at The Old Spaghetti Factory.
Happy birthday to comedian Aziz Ansari, who turned 27 this week! This guy’s got everything: he’s cute and hilarious, stars on a network comedy and currently has a sweet development deal with Judd Apatow. He’s become a cult hero and rolled large with Jay-Z. He’s been on Letterman, for chrissake. All by the tender age of 27.
So much already achieved! Yet so much life ahead of him!
Eh. I’m too jealous now. F*ck Ansari!

Brian, who is a NY-based stand-up comedian and blogger for 8 Asians, shared the panelist’s table with me last weekend at the 3rd Annual New York City Asian American Student Conference blogosphere panel. I remember a lot of what he said, but not all of it–his deep, velvety voice kept lulling me into a distracted, happy, crush-coma.
Shortly after the panel, my brilliant girlfriend Maegan walked up to me to, I assumed, to lavish me with praise and a run-down of all the brilliant, cogent, incisive things I’d said over the previous 70 minutes. Instead she said, “I really liked that Brian guy. He was really smart, funny.”
“I liked what he had to say.”
“Alright yeah, he’s fucking hot. HOT.”
Move over, Bobby Jindal. There’s new voice to hump in town.
Known for: a memorable stand-up act that grabs laughs internationally from Bangalore to NYC, his performance in OutLaugh with our lady Margaret Cho, a top-ten nominasian for desiclub.com’s 10 Sexiest men of 2007. He’s Indian hailing from New Delhi, and an Amazian Gaysian… what’s not to love?
