It’s OK to bring your ethnic lens to the "Most RACES Show on Earth!"


Racial stereotypes, ethnic clichés and culture differences are the focal point of the Oct. 16 comedy at the Chop Shop NoDa. MRSOE! Showtime is at 8:30 p.m. Chop Shop is located at 399 East 35th St.


"MRSOE!" is a stand-up comedy show that has sold out shows across the U.S. and Canada since 2005 and is on its first southern tour. The show in Charlotte is one of 16 stops.


“The 'Most RACES Show on Earth!' helps us to better understand one another. The barriers between cultures cannot be easily dissolved; sometimes it’s actually the shock value of a lot of the jokes that inspires people to start thinking. The more we realize our differences, the more we are the same because we all laugh at the same things,” said Neil Bansil, the show’s creator and producer.


The show features a rotating cast of comedians: Noah Gardenswartz (Jewish American); Mia Jackson (African-American);  Viet Huynh (Vietnamese American); Daniel Tirado (Polish-Peruvian) Landry (Jamaican-Canadian), Rob Haze (African-American); Trixx (Ghanaian-Canadian); and Bansil, a Filipino-Canadian-American.


Tickets are $10 and are available at the door. A portion of the proceeds from each show will go towards the YWCA Stand Against Racism initiative. For tickets, visit www.mrsoe.com or visit The Chop Shop Noda at 399 E. 35th St.
