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**.


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!


**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!!


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!
