Slanted Comedy Producers: Mike “Black Mike” Abara & Walter Hong
Walter Hong started his career working as a bodyguard for such notables as Charlamine Willson and Priston Schmuler. You haven’t heard of them? It’s ok, nobody has. They couldn’t afford the ex-college lineman – all they could afford was Walter. He worked several years as a bodyguard for the middle class and D-List stars. And when he saved up enough money, he moved to Walterville, OR – the mecca for Korean standup comedians. He still bodyguards from time-to-time and endures the laughter and mocking, but he needs the money.
