About this project
Episode 1 is out! Donate today to see more!
Hello, my new friends! My name is Jason Uyeda and for most of my life I've been Asian. I am making a Youtube Comedy web series called WedUh Man. This video is just a preview WedUh Man's skits about breaking Asian stereotypes and answering the questions people are afraid to ask.
Why do I need to donate?
Without you the backers, WedUh will not be able to get the starting costs necessary to start a higher quality youtube web series. Behind the scenes, there are many hidden expenses, including lights, expensive lenses, crew, food. Every penny will be used solely for WedUh Man productions and nothing else. The Kickstarter video itself was made out of my pocket because I believe in what WedUh Man does and will stand for.
Where'd WedUh Man come from?
WedUh Man Pronunciation: Wed-Uh Man
After graduating from San Jose State University and working, I realized that I enjoyed telling jokes and making people laugh more than anything in the world. I started thinking of ideas for comedy sketches and after passing the ideas by family and friends and getting a lot of "I don't know how you think of these things," I knew I was onto something special.
Origin of WedUh Man: easier way of saying my last name, Uyeda. WedUh Man will bring a fresh take on what it means to be Asian in this day and age. No more being Smart, knowing Karate, or being great at Math.
