Blood Bath! Steven Ho Gets Gruesome on Conan

stevenbloodbath

Happy World Goth Day to all us dark-souled, black-hearted ghouls & gremlins! FOREVER ALLOOOOONNNE!!!

Keeping WGD in mind, it was good timing and tangentially relevant that BCB’s ol’ pally Steven Ho — despite having his arms full with real Asian baby twins (alas, Conan’s fake Asian Baby got raffled off on YouTube)  — walloped Conan with another action-packed plus BLOOD-DRENCHED appearance a couple days ago….and it literally GUSHED with gory goodness (sorry)!

If I had a quarter for every time someone said to me, “So, I’m gonna stick my sword inside you”….. I would have 50 cents. ANYHOO I learned a lot about how Hollywood works from watching these segments, including THIS awesome “dummy-soft-shoe-hand-punch-kick-to-the-face” trick (just watch, it will all make sense) and how they will serve you fake movie blood in a nice shot glass (FYI don’t swallow). Classy shit! Side note: WHO is that hawt stunt piece with the axe & the earring?? (good band name). Yowza. Talk about gettin that blood pumping.

As always, Steven Ho kills it…and You Will Know Him By the Trail of Dead left in his grisly wake…Good Stuff! Great Fun! Uh, I mean….the victims have been bled…strewn with time’s dead flowers…bereft in deathly bloom

Thanks Steven!

 

Steven Ho + Conan = One Huge TMNT

So our buddy Steven Ho has been crazy busy raising twins (Congrats!) and apparently ignoring his OG Asian Baby — but he’s BACK on Conan this Thursday and ready to bring the pain….and maybe transform Conan into a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle**.

CONAN-VS-HO

Man vs. Man-sized Turtle….whas gonna happen?!?

This is gonna sound fucked up, but when I was a kid I totally liked TMNT.  Not only “liked” in the sense of being a rabid fan of the cartoon, but like, LIKE liked. I wanted to skip through the sewer together shouting COWABUNGA and fight Krang side-by-shell (my signature weapon would be PoGo Ball) and have dishy, heart-to-heart convos about Shredder’s emotional problems or whatever an 8-year-old thinks love is. I had the hots for Leonardo specifically. He was the leader but not in an overly alpha, douchey way. As for April…I wasn’t sure if I hated her or wanted to be her (that dayglo yellow jumpsuit, pow!).

Soooooo that right there is the special place that TMNT has in my heart — and I am releasing that creepy anecdote out into the universe so it doesn’t hold power over me anymore. YOU DON’T HAVE TURTLE POWER OVER ME ANYMORE, LEO!

Don’t you dare miss Steven Ho and a very special 6’4” red pompadour-ed Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle this Thursday night!

Hawt.

**For which Steven is especially qualified: he played Donatello in both Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III, son!!

Conan O’Brien Gets Drunk at Holiday Party, Steven Ho Kicks His Ass

BCB buddy the indomitable Steven Ho sent us this gem from last night’s Conan. As usual, it involves plenty o’ spin kicks to the gut, glass breaking o’er heads, and a jolly assortment of beat downs (courtesy of Steven, of course).

And since this is a Holiday Party, it also involves heartwarming festivities like candy cane jousting(!), ugly Xmas sweaters, and the requisite over-aggressive drunkenness. This video should set the bar for all office holiday parties to come.

 

Thanks Steven!

Steven Ho Back on Conan Tomorrow!

Our fave stuntman/martial artist/hi-end furniture store owner/NEW DAD Steven Ho is back, and as usual, busting Conan O’Brien’s balls. If there is unfinished bidnid that needs finishin’, Steven Ho will be the one to uh, FINISH IT!!! Just look at the fear in Conan’s eyeballs!

Don’t miss what is sure to be a delightful evening of whoop ass.

Thanks Steven and Congrats!

Steven Ho on Conan This Wednesday!

Professional stuntman and martial artist (and one of BCB’s favorite people ever) Steven Ho will be making another appearance on Conan O’Brien this Wednesday. Steven has been putting Conan through stunt school, which has involved breaking bottles over Conan’s head and slicing open watermelon on his stomach (check out some highlights here). What will Steven think of next?!? A roundhouse kick to the nuts? Lighting Conan’s pompadour on fire? This stunt ish be cray-cray.

Be sure to tune into this epic showdown (and watch Conan confront his own mortality) Wednesday night on TBS.

Steven Ho on Conan

For those of youse who may not have caught it last night, professional stuntman and martial artist Steven Ho (aka ASIAN frickin CONAN) was on Conan O’Brien’s show, back for the first time since Conan found a new home on TBS.

And did not disappoint! In his continuing epic saga of putting Conan through stunt school, Steven pulled out the big guns, or swords — by cutting a watermelon on Conan’s stomach in half (eat your heart out, Gallagher), hitting Conan in the face with a staff, and incorporating an Asian baby!

Steven was also nice enough to provide BCB with some behind-the-scenes shots! Behold:

Can’t wait to see Steven’s next schoolin’ for Conan, and I hope Asian Baby continues to be a recurring character. It’s giving me some good ideas on how to best utilize my future progeny. Be sure to check out Steven’s past Conan appearances and other good stuff here.

UPDATE: Steven tells me that said Asian Baby is kind of famous, and even has his own website. AB first appeared as a stunt prop on The Tonight Show, and was later raffled off on Facebook and YouTube and shipped via UPS to Coco fan Linda Schenk. Check out AB’s site for more of this stunt baby’s adventures. Go ‘head, Asian Baby!

Thanks Steven!

Steven Ho Stand-Up

As if the man wasn’t ridiculously talented enough, now Steven Ho (martial artist, professional stuntman, home design entrepreneur, Asian Conan) can add stand-up comedy to his arsenal, and make us all feel really under-accomplished.

Steven performed his first stand-up set for Comedy Zen earlier this month at the Independent Theater in L.A.

I didn’t cringe one time while watching this, which is more than I can say about most professional comedians. Hard to believe this was his first time.

I particularly like the Italian food (Chinese food w/tomato sauce!) and shoulder-check jokes. And I actually do consider TMNT  “super-heroes”  (I even had a crush on Leonardo as a kid. Shut it.), so what’s the problem?

Thanks Steven!

BCB Profilin': Steven Ho

This installment of BCB Profilin’ features Steven Ho: world-renowned martial artist, professional stuntman, Hollywood fight trainer, entrepreneur, and…ASIAN CONAN!!! This renaissance man contacted us to say wassup after we did a post on his new “Come Get It Now” music video with Petree — and we lost no time in squealing like 14-year-olds at an Elvis concert and then groveling shamelessly to interview him. And since Steven is as gracious as he is talented…he actually bought it!!

Greetings, I am…

Steven Ho

I’ve been known to bitch about…

Bitches.  I was taught as a child in martial arts class that if we got hit in sparring, it was our fault for not blocking it.  I gravitate towards people who are accountable and assume responsibility for their actions.  I can’t tolerate people over 25 who don’t.

My influences are…

Bruce Lee, Lao Tzu, Sun Tzu, Leonardo DaVinci, Muhammad Ali, Elvis Presley.

On a Saturday night you can find me….

Trolling the city streets for hoodlums.

On a Tuesday night you can find me…

Training at Westside Boxing Club.

My usual drink/poison is….

Fresh squeezed ginger, apple, celery juice.

If I was a superhero my name would be…

Ho-Man.

I have a borderline unhealthy obsession with…

Trying to find organic ways to get our neighbor’s dog to stop pooping on our lawn.

Favorite thing to do in Los Angeles (or wherever you reside)…. Summer dinners and concerts at the Hollywood Bowl with friends, Lakers games, and beachside room at the Surf & Sand Hotel in Laguna Beach.

Married to…

Acclaimed interior and furniture designer, Nina Petronzio.

Free Association time! First word I think of after “Asian America”:

Bruce Lee

My weapon of choice is….

A pen……if that doesn’t work, Ninja Star.

My secret life…

I own PLUSH HOME, a high-end home building, interior design firm, and furniture manufacturing company with my wife.  Our flagship showroom is located on Melrose Avenue in West Hollywood, California.

Look out for me…

On Conan O’Brien’s new TBS show. I’m back on as a regular putting him through stunt school.

Asian Conan

So the much anticipated return of Conan O’Brien premiered on TBS uh…over a week ago, but I don’t have a TV and can’t keep up with these things so give me a frickin’ break.

But I would really be remiss if neglected to throw up a post about ASIAN CONAN. Yeah yeah, he’s been around for a while, but he recently released his own music video, biiiitch!

While Irish Conan’s new show has received tepid reviews, with ratings dipping 30% in the second week, Asian Conan will always rule. With that untame-able ‘do, smoov pop ‘n’ lockin’, and that ladykillin’ mod suit, folks can’t help but wanna come get it now.
