Xiro Xone Talk Radio welcomes comedian MONROK Thursday May 26, 3pm-PST, 6PM-EST
MONROK is synonymous with one word and one word only, MONROK. She is a stand up comedian and has developed a loyal following and played at places like The Comedy Store, The Hollywood Improv, and the Laugh Factory. She has appeared on shows like Last Comic Standing, Latino 101 and recently shot the pilot “Naked but Funny” for Fox. She won the 2009 California’s Funniest Female Contest (www.funniestfemale.com) and performed in the 2010 CBS Diversity Sketch Comedy Showcase. Instead of taking the safe route and talking about everyday problems such as dating and relationships, MONROK’s natural irritation for life brings a whole new brand of comedy to the stage.
MONROK was born in Sydney, Australia but grew up in Maryland from the age of 9. Her parents are staunch liberals from India and left to pursue a more westernized lifestyle, growing to become avid Bill Maher fans whom MONROK considers her biggest inspiration. She is unique in that while being a female east Indian comic, the majority of her Indian jokes are specific to her family, her father being an eccentric Math professor and her mother well just being her mother. She was surprisingly a shy child, and spent most of her time buried in a book. To the untrained eye, one would think her future would entail the MCATS or LSATS (although taking standardized tests is a major hobby of hers), it was quite the contrary. Her comedy may be dry, but it is nothing you have seen before, or will probably ever see again, because you can’t copy the way someone thinks, and that’s exactly what it is. It’s not a character, a bit, or an act, it’s just MONROK.
To produce a Comic Book, you need a Cartoonist or Artist. Ramon Ramirez Jr., is as good as it get, and he's entering the Xone.
When Hollywood Studio's make a Movie based on Comic Book Characters, no amount of publicity or merchandising can make it a hit, if fans don't like it.
The Good, are movie's such as Spiderman and Batman which have been very successful. The Bad, is when a brilliant actor like Alec Baldwin in Garfield and a very funny John Goodman in the Flinstones, have fans still scratching their heads. The Plain Ugly, Catwoman and Daredevil, which starred two award winning actors. Fans are engaged in friendly discussions and debates as to how Hollywood's Adaption of Comic Book Characters, produced the Good, the Bad, and Plain Ugly. We take you into the Xone to look for answers.
In a multiperson interview, we enter the fun world of Hollywood, and the Comic Book culture. We examine the Art and Design of Comic Books, the Comic Book character's personality, the Script Writer, Costume Design, and choice of actors.
