Aside 14

Aside-14-FB2

“Life Is Better When You Are Laughing.”

When was the last time you had a belly aching, eye tearing, nose snorting bout of laughter? That long? Having a great sense of humour is important in all aspects of our lives. Live to laugh, laugh to live. Laughter is truly the best medicine when it comes to helping us feel emotionally, mentally and physically young. Pay attention to those who makes you smile and laugh, and spend more time with them. E. E. Cummings said, “The most wasted of all days is one without laughter.” So, let’s not waste another day!

About Aside:
Aside derives its name from the theatrical term of “taking an aside,” where characters break the fourth wall to address the audience directly with their insight, secret aspirations, and original perspectives.

The presenters at Aside are individuals who have found inspiration in their craft and in turn have shared their inspiration with us. They utilize their discipline to communicate with creativity and breach the gap between artist and audience.

Aside 14 (中文)

Laughter2
”有歡笑的生命更好”。

您上次捧腹大笑到肚子痛、流眼淚是什麼時候?那麼久了嗎?在生活中抱有幽默感是一件非常重要的事情。生活是為了歡笑,歡笑是為了生活。大笑更能讓我們身理及心理上長生不老。

留意身邊讓你笑的人,並盡量與他們多花點時間共處。美國詩人卡明斯曾說過:「沒有笑聲的一天是荒廢的一天。」讓我們一起把握時光吧!

關於「旁白在紅房」:
「旁白在紅房」得名於 “taking an aside” 之戲劇術語,表示表演者為了以較直接的方式表達他們的真知灼見和獨特的觀點而打破隔離觀眾與舞台的隱形屏障。

本活動的表演者靠著精湛的技藝取得靈感,進而與我們分享他們的成果。他們並利用紀律與創造力來銜接藝術家與觀眾之間的差距。

Kevin Lee (Klee) 李承翰
生日 1991/3/17

Kevin 是個在美國洛杉磯出生,台灣長大的小孩。 從小學到高中,Klee一直都是班上以及同學之間的開心果。也因為這樣的背景,算是個第三文化小孩。

2009大學前往美國華盛頓大學就讀,原本主修工業工程。2012大三那年決定開始尋找自己真正想做的,暑假前往紐約電影學院(New York Film Academy) 完成編劇課程,寫出人生第一部電影 。之後在大學也改修傳播新媒體,學習影片製作,其中一支影片在超過一百人的課堂中獲得票選冠軍。畢業前也開始接觸表演,跟朋友組了個樂團四處表演,擔任主唱 (唱得還好,但就是因為這樣磨練變得不會怯場)。

2013大學結束後返台服教育替代役,2014在嘉義縣的灣潭國小擔任英文老師。 當兵時利用自己空閒的時間創了一個YouTube頻道,拍了幾隻喜劇短片,其中也被「台灣達人秀」分享過。

2015退役後加入Comedy Central 合夥的「哈哈台」,認識Lalo,兩人默契搭上後拍出趣味,搞笑的影片,並在臉書上累積破百萬的觀看次數。Lalo跟Klee後來決定自己出來建立工作室,專心拍他們的喜劇系列《什麼東西》
至今Klee最大的興趣是打籃球,唱歌,還有各種創作。大家的笑聲是Klee動力的來源,他希望能利用影片,電影來帶給全世界歡樂,拉近『東』『西』方文化的距離。

As a third culture kid, Kevin was born in Los Angeles, California, but grew in Taipei, Taiwan. Throughout his school years, Kevin has always been driven to make those around him laugh, earning him the “class clown” title.

In 2009, Kevin journeyed to the University of Washington to study Engineering. In the summer of 2012, Kevin decided to follow his passion and join a screenwriting program at the New York Film Academy, where he wrote his first feature screenplay. Kevin subsequently switched majors to Communications and began learning video editing, even winning first place once for a video competition out of 100 entries. Kevin also joined a band and performed in multiple gigs as the lead singer (his mediocre singing helped build self confidence).

In 2013, Kevin returned to Taiwan to start his substitute military service as an English teacher at a rural elementary school. During his free time, Kevin started a YouTube Channel and made a couple comedy shorts, which was featured on the Taiwan Talent Show Facebook page.

Kevin later joined Comedy Central affiliated “Hahatai” as a director, where he met Lalo and began making their own comedy series, accumulating over a million views. The duo later branched out to start the “LK Show”.

Kevin’s biggest interests are basketball, singing, and storytelling. He hopes to bring people together through laughter and comedy, narrowing the gap between cultures and generations.
