At Your Convenience

I received this in the inbox recently,

“My name is Raymond C. Lai and I am an Asian-American filmmaker based in Los Angeles. I am writing you today to let you know about my unique and hilarious independent pilot At Your Convenience. It is a surreal, hybrid live-action/animated sitcom pilot which I directed and co-wrote with RANDALL PARK (ABC’s Fresh off the Boat, The Interview) and stars Park and DWAYNE PERKINS (Tosh.0, Late night with Conan O’Brien) as two best friends who own and operate a convenience store together.

It made it’s premier as an official selection at the prestigious New York Television Festival, picked up the Jury Prize at the Iron Mule Comedy Showcase, and screened as part of CAAMFest in SF, the San Diego Asian American Film Festival, was nominated for Video of the Week at Awardeo, and now been featured on Short of the Week, where they called it “absurd and refreshingly original.”

I thought that this project might be of interest to your site and its readers because of Randall Park’s rising star, and the show’s depiction of race, stereotypes, and perspective. Here’s a link: http://www.shortoftheweek.com/2014/09/20/at-your-convenience/

I find Randall Park to be a pretty funny guy and that was proven true as well in this video, which was pretty funny and also plays around with stereotypes. Check it out below.
