Poet and spoken word artist Regie Cabico appears in Charles B. Wang Center Theatre’s “WANTED: Funny Asian Male” on April 25 at 8 p.m. He performs with fellow comic Hari Kondabolu.

Charles B. Wang Center houses the Office of Asian and Asian American Programs of Stony Brook University.

Regie Cabico is a performer with tremendous expressive range, able to shift between wry humor, indignation, and poignant longing in only minutes on stage. Called the “Lady Gaga of spoken word poets” by the Kenyon Review, Cabico has been featured on HBO’s Def Poetry Jam and in MTV’s Free Your Mind Spoken Word Tour.

A three-time-winner of top prizes at the annual National Poetry Slam, Cabico is a regular performer at the Nuyorican Poets Café and the Bowery Poetry Club in New York City, and his poetry appears in over 30 anthologies. Cabico is an out and proud gay Filipino American.

Brooklyn-based, Queens-raised comic Hari Kondabolu is quickly gaining recognition for his “smart, analytical” standup (TimeOut NY). Kondabolu’s sets use richly textured, witty accounts of the everyday and explorations of the absurd to make strong and substantial political statements. Kondabolu has performed on “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” Comedy Central’s “Live at Gotham” and John Oliver’s “New York Standup Show” and debuted a half-hour Comedy Central Presents television special in February 2011.

Tickets to the show are priced: $35 (VIP Priority Seating) / $20 (General) / $15 (Senior) / $10 (Student). Email for additional information or to buy tickets.
