Joel



Joel Kim Booster is very funny. He's very funny in the way good comic actors and good stand up comics are funny: he's an expert on taking everyday occurrences and painful parts of his past and making them so ridiculous that you have no excuse not to laugh. He's also very handsome. I could not imagine one of those purists on Grindr or any other hookup app not going for him. But of course there's men with 'preferences'. Their loss. I'd try to figure out what is it that makes him tick. On top of that, he brings a very needed dose of diversity to the game of sitcoms and prime time tv. With the hiring of Bowen Yang on SNL we have a clear example that diversity IS possible even in the very commercial world of TV and the racially charged moment of 2019.



It may be the Crazy Rich Asians effect, because that movie brought in the millions and most probably TV producers noticed that a shot of diversity would bring new voices, faces and points of view to national TV. Or maybe it was about fucking time. Oh, I know we have Harry Shun Jr. in Shadowhunters and Fresh Off the Boat, but they are I heard, in their last season. They also had Always my Maybe on Netflix (and absolute gem) and now we have Last Christmas (with the very delectable Henry Golding) but we were missing some Asian American point of view from a gay man. And Joel is bringing that in spades in Sunnyside.

I find Joel's brand of humor very compelling and absolutely relatable. I think that we, as gay men should include the fact that we are gay as a non-issue in our daily conversations and stand up routines, as Joel does. Not that we all do stand up comedy, but you get my drift, no need to snark me out here, right? I also think that we should also support talented LGBTQ artists on what they do and watch their specials, listen to their podcasts follow them on twitter or whatever it is that people do to show support. Joel also got a Fire Island comedy series in the works (I see you taking part on that, Maddie!!) and apparently it's going to be a rework of Pride and Prejudice with gay men. In Fire Island. Need I say more? Cannot you see the endless possibility for shenanigans? Sign me up!

And in case you've never heard of Joel (how dare you!!) here's some clips of him being absolutely funny and adorable. Because you can actually be both. Enjoy!








So, make sure you check him out on Sunnyside, a new series airing on NBC now. I'm binge watching it on Hulu and it's a gem.

    1. OMG yes!
      And if you hyphenate LaBrea-TarPits you'll sound like a well-to-do Connecticut socialite with a penchant for big wigs.

    1. Haha. Maybe because he's in CA? You'll have to use the paid app!
      And you know that by now that name is being copyrighted, right?

  3. I shall take your recommendation and watch. I've seen short clips of his. He is a funny guy. That he can take being gay and make it normal is invaluable.

    1. He's hysterical in the new series. He plays more a super-spoiled rich kid but yes, the gayness is there... so refreshing.
