Scarlett Johannson Presents

SCARLETT JOHANNSON PRESENTS was the precursor to Asian AF, making it the very first Asian American comedy show at the UCB Theatre. In May 2016, ScarJo Presents was created to celebrate AAPI Heritage Month with an ironic twist due to the Hollywood whitewashing trend with movies like Ghost In the Shell, Doctor Strange, etc. ScarJo Presents boasts being one of the most attended shows at the UCB Theatre and was brought out to New York for the Del Close Marathon in June 2017.

Scarlett Johansson Presents was created & produced by Will Choi and co-hosted with Keiko Agena
