Do you know the show Bridgerton? The TV series described as ‘colourful interpretation’ because of its diverse casting? Imagine that same diversity – but in comedy and in bite-sized pieces. It’s Sketch-eron!
The Sketch-erton series contains three bite-sized videos with a diverse cast of writers and stars from different backgrounds. Created by Chinese-Australian comedians Jenny Tian and Patrick Golamco, Sketch-erton includes sketches that poke fun at the Asian stereotypes created by Hollywood. What if James Bond was a sexy Asian hunk?* What if Pride and Prejudice had an Asian cast? Move aside Keira Knightley, it’s time for Sketch-erton. Sketch-erton will be shared and distributed on all major online platforms (Facebook, Instagram and Youtube).
*Note, Jenny and Patrick tried really hard to get Daniel Dae Kim for the shoot but he’s unavailable. They promise the other sexy hunk is just as good.
Jenny Tian is a comedian, actor and writer. Known for her deadpan mannerisms and sharp wit, Jenny has performed in the stand-up comedy scene for over four years and in 2021, sold out her debut hour ‘Picture This’ at the Sydney Comedy Festival.

Patrick Golamco is a Chinese-Australian stand up comedian.
