Comedy Dojo X: the Return of David Lee

September 6, 2011 at 06:33AM

Super line up tomorrow at Hawaiian Brian's for Comedy Dojo X: the Return of David Lee. My first Comedy Dojo and first comedy show as a featured musical act in years. The last comedy show I did was a couple years back when I opened for one of my heroes Michael Winslow at Pipeline Cafe. When I caught Michael Winslow live, his show literally blew my mind away. I am ready to introduce new material at tomorrow's show. I am ready to hit that circuit again.

There are soooooooo many others I could list! I LOVE to read!

Well, here are some of my favorite classics: Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury, The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger, To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee, The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald, and The Lord of the Rings (series) by J.R.R. Tolkien. Some great non-fiction books about the dance culture I love include Foundation by Joseph Schloss, which is an excellent book about NYC B-boy/B-girl or breaking/breakdance culture, Can't Stop Won't Stop by Jeff Chang, which is a great historical analysis of American Hip Hop culture, and The Underground is Massive by Michelangelo Mathos, an amazing history of electronic dance music culture. Happy reading everyone :)

Enders Game, The Great Gatsby, Of Men and Mice, Maximum Ride. I need to read more books. I haven't read so long Bc I've been attached to the ones I've already read.

Jason You're amazing guy! Huge congrats from Poland!

Jason definitely deserves an auditorium of his own. He done a lot promoting the arts(especially beat-boxing) and inspiring people like myself to enjoy and constantly try to perfect an art and have an unstoppable mindset.

Aye that's lit. Keep doing what you're doing and you're putting a positive influence to a lot people

Jason Tom is a one-of-a-kind individual. During my sophomore year of high school, I remember watching him beatbox for our school for just a few minutes and was blown away by the amount of talent he was able to showcase in just that limited amount of time. Fast forward about three years or so, I was looking to write a feature story of a KCC alumnus/alumna for the KCC newspaper and came across Jason's name online. He was quick to respond to me when I reached out to him, and he was very interested in being featured. I got the chance to interview him, and couldn't believe the stories that he had to share with me. Over a two hour period, I was able to learn a lot about who Jason was, and he has proved to me that anybody can make it in life when even in the toughest situations. His humor and charismatic nature really bring his personality to life, and I blows me away to know that he has a positive impact on the community not only through his beatboxing but also through his words. Jason is inspiring, and I'm glad that I got to chat with him and share his story with many others and beyond.
