Join TAP-Chicago as we support Northwestern TASC and PAPhi as they present their annual Spring Speaker: the Fung Bros!
Andrew and David Fung are comedians who create YouTube video blogs and music videos. With over 800,000 subscribers and more than 80 million views, the Seattle-born duo are well-known for cracking jokes about young, Asian American identity.
The event will be on the Northwestern University Evanston campus in Fisk 217 on Friday, April 24th from 7 pm to 9 pm.
Admission is free and open to the public. Parking in most campus lots is also free!
The closest parking is the South Campus parking structure, across the street from Fisk. Following Sheridan Road north, there will be a fork in the road that directs toward the arts circle, i.e. the Segal Visitors Center. Taking that fork and driving just past the Segal, there will be two parking structures on the right. The Fisk building is across Campus Drive from the parking structures.

ABOUT THE MOVIE:
Kano is a 2014 Taiwanese baseball film directed by Umin Boya and produced by WEI Te-Sheng and Jimmy Huang. It depicts how the multiracial Kano baseball team from southern Taiwan overcame great odds to represent the island in the 1931 Japanese High School Baseball Championship at Koshien Stadium, when Taiwan was still under Japanese rule. Performing beyond all expectations, the underdog team advanced to the championship game in the tournament.
