Asia Uncut!

Hello my readers! First, I would like to wish a very happy birthday to my little cousin Bre'Anna who turned four today! Love you much *MUAH* lol ok back to my news for today.

A couple of weeks ago, I was contacted by Lauren Coleman, founder and president of Punch Media Group. Her company focuses on reaching 18-34 year olds through online and cell phone methods to spread the word about different businesses and their products. She reached out to me to do a piece on a show called Asia Uncut, a late-night talk show in Asia!

The hour-long show premiered in 2009 and mixes sketch comedy, musical performances, and celebrity interviews from both Asian and Western talent. Past guests include Edward Norton, Jackie Chan, and Jamie-Lynn Sigler, as well as Asia celebrities like Lee Wonghorm and Donnie Yen.

Creator and host of the show, Jon Niermann, decided to create the show after spending 12 years in Asia. Niermann, who was also a past Disney execute, felt a great need for a regional night show in the area. "We finally just decided to shoot a pilot, and it got picked up right away," he said. "[The show] gives international artists a unique platform in a familiar format to reach a broad, affluent audience, while at the same time, gives Asian artists a chance to broaden their fan base to the English-speaking market." The show is produced by Niermann's company West Meets East Productions, and is shot in a studio in Shanghai, China. It is broadcast weekly via syndiccation and reaches 100 million people worldwide.

This season is now available to watch in the U.S. online at the Asia Uncut website. I've checked out a few episodes, and I really like it! The music is great to listen to, and the guests are very interesting people with varying talent that will definitely excite you! You guys should definitely watch yourself!
