Elizabeth Banks’ women comedy platform WhoHaha releases a new project every month as part of their Series Spotlight initiative, pairing with women creators to produce funny and innovative content.
Their most recent web series is Radical Cram School from Kristina Wong. It’s an unscripted series of educational comedy sketches that pairs Kristina herself with young girls of colour in a classroom environment that breaks down big issues like structural racism and the patriarchy so its understandable for kids. Kristina hopes to empower young Asian girls and other girls of colour to embrace their identities and fight for social justice.
Kristina Wong is a performance artist, writer and comedian. She’s appeared on both Comedy Central and FX and has performed internationally.
You can watch the whole series of Radical Cram School for free on WhoHaha.
