White Male Privilege Isn't Real
- Published on May 30, 2023 veröffentlicht
- This is my first comedy special, Bring Back Apu, and it truly is special to me. Because somewhere along the line, South Asians started trying to cash in on victimhood currency. Complaining about cartoon characters, people mispronouncing our names, and God knows what else.
But we were raised better than that. Our parents, grandparents, uncles and aunties taught us dominate everything we do, just like they did when they made it here. And it is our privilege to carry that tradition forward. So it's time to end all the victim sh*t and taking our identity back.
I hope you enjoy

LET’S GO BHAI 🇮🇳
Lets goooo !!!
This shit was hilarious. He definitely deserves a Netflix special but make that shit a full hour.
im one of the Patreon assholes and im just sad that this is only 20 percent , pure gold 20 minutes but still I wished there was more. Akash and Andrew the future of comedy 🚀
Apu was one the smartest guys on the show, he had 8 kids, a lovely wife, a firebird car, a business owner, has a doctorate in computer science, takes his religon seriously (when homer mocked him about it..Apu was still VERY polite about it.), he's friends with Sir Paul Macartney, builds his own furniture, has a great singing voice, and he's seen as a THREAT???
He is threat because Aziz Ansari said so. And was voiced by an Italian American.
I mean it's weird he's working in a convenient store with a CS degree dough
He's not a "threat", some Indian guy found it offensive that he was voiced by a white guy and not an Indian. Isn't acting supposed to be pretending to be people that you're not, ESPECIALLY voice acting? Doesn't matter, get rid of him or the liberals are gonna boycott your show.
@SpiritGear He owns said store. He's saving thousands a month by not hiring another employee.
I wish I was Apu
One thing the "cancel Apu" crowd seems to miss is the fact that Apu seems to be the only character in The Simpsons that actually enjoys his job...
Even had a whole song about how he needed the Kwik-E-Mart when he was fired once. He loves his job, he was successful, a good husband, good father and a stand up citizen and yet he was the one who was removed...
Ok, now I want him cancelled.
"Name one thing a white guy isn't allowed to have?"
"An opinion." Lmao. Truth.
Its because for the last couple of centuries their opinion has been enforced as the norm.
@dipyaman chakrabarti Welp doesn’t mean their opinions shouldn’t be heard all of a sudden lol
@dipyaman chakrabarti right, because the rest of the people in the world; white females, blk, brwn, yllw, red sat around and did nothing/said nothing for the last couple of centuries, right? Can you please pretending this bs is true and stop being disrespectful to my ancestors?
Jesus Christ. That might be the best 20 minutes of comedy I've heard in a decade.
His crowd work is almost unmatched
@Kevin Fry a fair weather fan? As in I only like comedy when it's good? Yes.
Are you Japanese, love anime
This was spicy and made my day
As a SE asian dude, I'd be mad AF if they cancelled our stereotypical characters
I hate woke terms like SE Asian. It was the orient forever. And that term described the exact same thing! And the only reason they got rid of it was because "colonizers" used that term. ...As told to us by the NEW woke colonizers, who are doing it more than the British empire ever could.
They tried to kill Speedy Gonzales but failed
WTF South East Asia if further away from the Orient than Washington to Moskau. Idk about the colonizer stuff but calling SE Asia or India as “Orient” makes no sense 😂
@Binskee Nearly no one in the 20th century used the term "orient" to refer to India. In some crazy old writings where they didn't know anything east of where things were it was. It's a perfectly useful word, and those insisting on it's disuse are doing so under the auspices of the worst ideology in human history.
I have zero concern for what megalomaniacs think.
@Prax i don't care if it's been used or not, i just can't comprehend an example where it has to be used in my head.
Bro Apu is like one of the only stable and reasonable adults on the entire show...
He does have his shit together better then anyone in the show lol.
I also liked how the jokes about Hinduism were mainly about the American characters being dumb or ignorant. My favourite Apu moment was when Homer is...being weird about Apu's Ganesha statue, and Apu, in a very dignified and firm way, says: "Please do not offer my god a peanut."
The joke isn't "Ooo, weird foreign religion!" it's "Americans are ignorant about world cultures."
Exactly he was wise empathetic and no comedy with his in it was of negative intent.
And Barney when he's sober
@DS I mean, maybe compared to Burns. But I'd rather be with Apu then Homer. What? He tries to squeeze some extra cash from time to time because his shop is failing? There are worse things.
bro representing the whole indian community to world.. hell yeah bro...! you killing it...
You South Asians and your "bros" and "sirs", man.
@heckin frog that's the entirety of Asia, I believe.
@heckin frogisn’t that just the world?😂
He's not funny. He laughs at everything his boss says. And its 'hey look at me' laugh and its sad and pathetic. He got mad at a person in the audience cause
he, himself, wasnt funny.
Well shit, I feel like I just saw a Dave Chappelle special. You smashed all the preconceptions that make people feel bad, and it was fuckin' true. It was funny as hell too! #bringbackapu
This man is a legend. Saying what everyone is thinking. Especially that last part. I've never subscribed to someone so fast. He's funny but hits everything know the head. Makes people laugh at uncomfortable topics. That shouldn't be uncomfortable! I'm honestly shocked he hasn't been "canceled" yet. Bro you keep doing you!
Apu taught me a lesson. In the episode where Apu and Marge go to a warehouse store, he tells Marge to go to the line with only men because it's the fastest. He's like "Cash only, no chit chat."
This man so effortlessly skirts the line between hilarious and offensive, it's actually incredible
I’m soooo stoked about this!! Let’s go!
Stoked is a white word.
@robbie Sharp stoked is our word you can say hyped
@Jace Beleren 😂
I saw the short and had to come check this out. It was absolutely amazing, you’re one of the first comedians where I’m like oooooh I gotta go see this man do a show.
I appreciate that! Come through! 🙏🏽
This guy's 110% desi legend!
Akaash is so reserved on Flagrant. I come here to check him out and he's a freakin BEAST! Was not expecting to go that hard and that dark lmao.
Recently... Before he was a wild boy.
1: you reminded me how much I miss my parents, they were so strong and worked so hard, I feel like I'll never be as great as they were.
2: that was hilarious dude, you are awesome
- College graduate
- Able to earn his American citizenship.
- A volunteer firefighter
- A vegetarian and made Lisa a better one by telling her not to judge people.
- The only playable character in Hit and Run outside of the Simpsons family
- A complex character
- A good character
I would have rather they re-cast Apu than just get rid of him.
Exactly... Compare that to groundskeeper Willie and the depiction of Scotsmen.
Apu was the only Non-Simpson playable in Simpsons Hit and Run. An entire towns worth of characters and they had to narrow it down to him says a lot about his character and why they chose him to represent the brand in a now classic video game.
Here’s another one: Apu was a consistent voice of reason. He wasn’t a simpleton in a minstrel show, he was somebody whom many characters turned to for advice because he was knowledgable on a number of topics and one of the few stable adults around. That’s why I knew most of the people complaining about him probably hadn’t actually seen much of him in action. He owns a convenience store? That’s a harmful stereotype? I’m busting my ass working minimum wage (or less) at one of the few jobs in this shitty border town I’m qualified to do (options are severely limited when you don’t know Spanish), owning a convenience store sounds like a DREAM!
My man ran a successful business
@TheRandompaint He certainly did, but that is the most obvious thing about him if you ask me. Akaash mentions it, and other commenters have. Hell, they actually made a point of highlighting it in ON THE SHOW, in the episode where he gets married. All of the single guys at a bachelor auction were losers whom none of the women wanted to bid on, and somebody pointed out that Apu had a lot going for him (including the business).
He’s more than his business, though, which is my point. He has a Ph.D in computer science, which is how he ended up in America in the first place, to pursue a doctorate (which he also earned).
@TBustah very true, I guess I'll (maybe you too) never know how it effects indians and Indian Americans since I'm not one. I'm just sitting here trying to think of other Indians in cartoons amd can't think of one
@TheRandompaint It’s true that we can’t tell other people how to feel, but stereotypes are just what the show DOES. If I were Indian, I think I’d be more offended if they DIDN’T do a little ribbing, like they thought I couldn’t take a joke like everyone else the show pokes fun at.
@The Large Hardon Collider so true LHC😂 as a Jew I absolutely love mort and whenever Jews appear in the cartoon.
The best lesson... we can't allow ourselves to lose our sense of humor.
all good comedy takes is the ability to see the truth that is going on around us, and a great sense of timing to slap us with that one thing most of us forget is actually true. I've never seen this guy before, and how amazing is it that his entire set talks about his heritage, but never once mocks his parents' accent. I about died at the Hindi joke!!!
THIS man's the hero we need
This guy's a genius... telling the truth no one else will.
Man, just discovered this guy and damn is he good. This dude be putting every last late night 'comic' to absolute shame
Apu and Willie are probably the most respected foreign characters for simpsons, Willie is a true man when it comes to his home and Apu owns a business while providing for his family like any good man
Exactly. I was born in the early 90s and I grew up on these guys. Willie taught kids to be proud of their heritage, to stand tall, proud and strong. And Apu taught kids the value of hardwork. Sure he made mistakes but he owned up to it instead of ignoring them.
"grease me up woman!" Lol😅
Every single Scottish person does it!
This dude is spot on. It isn't white privilege, it's western privilege. I would drink toilet water in the U.S. before I drank tap water in the Philippines or Brazil. Not because of racism, but because of facts.
There is the privilege he described and there is also white male privilege which is more subtle.
Cistern, or bowl?
As a Brazilian i concur
First time seeing his standup. He is actually incredibly talented, both in standup and just letting loose on Flagrant.
Thank You, Schultz and others for bringing back reality checks as part of next gen comedy... you do sound like Steve Buscemi.
My friend just sent me this, and it has been a very, very long time since I've actually laughed. Your jokes were fire, they had actual punchlines, and dude, the fat jokes made me laugh even harder due to being overweight myself. Been working my ass off losing these last 40 pounds though. But dude, consider me a fan and I definitely plan to see one of your specials if you're ever in my state. Stay safe dude and keep being awesome.
I found this by complete accident, and 100% serious, it's the funniest thing I've seen since early Kat Williams/Kevin Hart stuff. I am in tears, and it feels really good to actually laugh out loud. You just got a new fan, thanks for making me feel better!
Respect for putting out a tight 20 as an independent special instead of selling an hour "special" to a streaming conglomerate. A special should be special, and this work of art exceeds the criteria.
I think if he could of or when he can he will sell to Netflix or whoever. Akaash just ain’t at that level yet in their eyes. Sucks for them because they could of got great content from him for a lot cheaper than it will be next time around. I can’t wait to see my guy on Netflix in the next couple years.
@Bada Bing fuck all that. Netflix doesn't define comedians. You act like it's winning an Emmy. Akaash clearly likes having the freedom of speaking the taboo, and him posting on Clip-Share let him do it how he wanted and that's why we're watching. While I do hope he gets paid, I hope he never sells out and always keeps it real
@hollywood dc I can understand your arguments, but I think having a Netflix special kinda legitimizes you wether we like to admit that or not honestly. Also you get more outreach if you are on Netflix too.
@John Lewis I disagree. at most Netflix has just become some empty corporate paycheck that you've become mainstream. Like NBA players today getting fat contracts is more about how many shoes they sell and IG followers they got. Netflix also got Amy Schumer and Hasan Minhaj, signing fat contracts for just being popular and they suck shit. There's so much prime talent that don't have mainstream Netflix specials now. Congrats if he does get a special and it leads to movie deals or sitcoms, but as a fan it don't make a difference to me one way or the other as long as he's staying 💯 and he's still on air
@hollywood dc It would be great if Akaash got a Netflix special, not because he needs them to prove he’s funny - he’s funny without them - but just because it would mean him getting a shit ton of their money and more people seeing him.
Saw you in Houston, you blew the audience away. love it "funny in a karmic way" always honest.
Truth bombs left and right! This guy is awesome!
You managed to put into words what everyone think, and managed to be heard at the same time!
I hope you keep up the quality of your interventions 💪💪💪
He has got to be the most genius, brilliant comedian I have ever heard in my life!
That last speech goes to all youth in this country no one owes nothing from the the start you earn what you make. What amount of attention, determination, patience, and ingenuity into something that you make yours.
You earn what you’re paid. If we earned what we made, many of us would only need to work 10-15 hours per week. I would be retired already.
Entitlement mindsets are lame as hell, but many youth are fighting for their fair share and don’t deserve to be lumped in with the entitled brats, who tend to be disproportionately loud.
The last speech - after the ending - really fundamentally expressed my feelings on current immigrant culture in the United States better than I've ever seen anyone else do before. I'm not Indian - my parents came from central Mexico, but the speech at the end fully encompasses every problem I've seen in second generation immigrant communities I've seen.
But why have kids if you just want them to struggle?
@MOON BASE ∙ [Monk Mode] So only super rich, insanely happy and healthy people can have kids now?
@MOON BASE ∙ [Monk Mode] 1. Third world countries aren't very keen on abortions. You do the nasty you're stuck with it. 2. Life is beautiful
@Hedrox Ladimon which he generation are u from ??
This was one of the best 20 minutes I've spent in a long time. Straight up you sound like Steve Buscemi. You've got yourself a pocket of comedy gold here. Subscribed.
So inspiring. A fresh voice of reason and realism punching at the borders of hypocrisy.
“Thats my guy” made my friend jump out of his seat with an “ AMEN BROTHER!” Lmao had me dying
This guy is so awesome. Hope he doesn't get cancelled.
No one. I mean thought of that till you said it. You want him cancel. Tell the truth
Love you guys! Thanks for letting me know about this.
Yaaaaas! Krystal and Saagar FTW! Please clap back at the haters calling you hawkish on China!
Ayeee Breaking Points in the building 🔥🔥🔥
Saagar, is like this Texas Indian is speaking my language
Breaking points brought me here
Wow that was incredible. This guy knows how to work a crowd!
This special is masterful. Consistently hilarious, and drops some straight truths.
Best special I’ve seen in a good while.
First time hearing you, Akaash, and I just started my day laughing so hard I cried. Thanks for that
I love the new age comedians going at it against the woke !
"You didn't let them say anything, then one guy showed up and said *EVERYTHING*" insane line
I always respected Apu's hustle, he was an honest,hard-working man, even as a kid, i could see that
Dont forget he had a rooftop oasis that included a whole ass Paul McCartney.
As a white boy I never thought Apu was a character to be laughed at. He’s a friend of the Simpsons that just happened to be Indian. He’s an Indian stereotype but isn’t every single person on that show a stereotype of something
Apu has the best episodes. Songs too
theres literally two different episodes about how hes the best guy in springfield and it bothers the other men...apu was the shit
I fucking love it dude! I am a huge fan of stand up comedy and I KNOW the history....YOU are excellent...keep your nose to the grind brother. I think a huge audience is well deserved.
Bro that podcast message at the end was honestly hands down the best message in this whole video and this dude is amazing at his craft!
That end monologue. My man, that's exactly why I changed careers and got into art. 100% of my success is my own doing promoted by those who helped me with great advice and guidance. Can't wait to be king.
Apu is a volunteer firefighter, dammit! A role model for his community!
Props for spreading the amusement around, Akaash! Wit some truf!!
Akaash went too hard with that ending speech. Really resonated with my mexican heart 🇲🇽 . My mom came here with nothing, has been working ever since I can remember, then one day got deported, guess what she did when she got back? Got right back to work. Unstoppable, let's get it. Make it happen.
Not gonna lie, as a Mexican, that ending speech made tear a little bit.
@Calixto Salinas hell yeah
It's funny that super woke Mexican Americans and racist white Americans both seem to believe that it's impossible for Mexicans to succeed in America.
Meanwhile, I'm driving around in the real world seeing Mexicans working hard, running businesses, raising families, and rising up.
Ahuevo carnal. Real ones understand the struggle.
Wow, What you said at the end really hit home! You spoke so much truth! Thank you!
Your crowd work and stand up is great! You're funnier on your own.
14:48 Every dude with their partner there just avoided eye contact and started sweating😂
17:07, This guy checking with his wife if it's ok to laugh had me dying.
Don't know how I'm just finding this. Absolutley hysterical, can't wait to see more man. Keep it up
It was only a matter of time before Akaash got recognized. He's earned it 👏
If I was religious, I would pray for him to get the recognition he deserves, because this was genuinely impressive. Didn’t hold back because he was afraid of offending people, just keeping it real. I’m glad I heard about this, he’s upper echelon
Bro Dropping Facts 🙌
Protect this man at all costs.
This is one of my new favorite specials of all time
Damnnnn. Major respect 🙏
God dammmm my boy out here spitting FACTS!! Nothing he said on that stage is wrong. I haven't laughed this much in a long time
Love it. Apu was my hero growing up, serious! Awesome special, the white privilege bit and the ending minute are especially great 👊🏽
And now we have an Indian dude, doing an impression of a white dude, doing an impression of an Indian dude... Impression-ception.
Great channels collide.
That ending was fucking 🔥🔥🔥. Needs to be on billboards and a Super Bowl commercial
Love you bro.
also I've request for you :
Please talk with Dr. Tess Lawrie ( Cochrane reviewer ) and how WHO's sponsored meta analysis on Ivermectin was botched up by UNITAID funding of 40 Million dollars and how they changed the conclusion of Dr. Andrew Hill's meta analysis, who was so pro Ivermectin and then flipped within a week.
He's at the top of the game for working a crowd.
first time ever seeing this guy.... fuckin epic! Thank you for being real!
This is hilarious, nicely done Akaash! 😂
I haven't laughed so hard from a 20 min video on youtube ever!
I was still laughing afterwards due to picturing him staring at me with wide eyes and a shit eating grin!
I hope this guy gets everything he deserves in life!
Bravo and best wishes!
Hope to see more!
Dude this is the first time I’ve ever seen you comedy but I instantly fell in love with you performance. Dude please keep going.
This shit was hilarious. Happy to see him winning but wish this shit wasn’t so short. Hoping for an hour special from our guy soon.
That’s the nicest compliment you could possibly give. We want more!
Nobody watches specials past about 20-30mins according to statistics.
@Matt K i do
@Matt K A lot of us do. Don't believe everything you read!
@Matt K you might be right about some of these other comics because they just can’t bring more than 30min of funny. Akaash ain’t one of those comics. Dude is crazy talented… bet he could put out a special where he just roasts the audience and it would be 🔥. I’m hoping to see his little ass live in Ontario, Ca.
I love the way you think Akaash. I’m Canadian and from Quebec and a dear friend of mine and her family are in India. You made me laugh at myself, and at everything. 😂❤️🇨🇦
OMG at the end was the best thing ive heard in a long time... This needs to be said over and over... totally subscribing!!!!
This is my first encounter with Akaash, he's hilarious!
I'm a 32 white Canadian. The very first thing I remember about learning about Indians (even that you existed,) was Apu. He was my introduction to your culture. My brother, & I loved him so!! Apu always felt like family. He was just like Homer. Different flavour, different colour, but there was a reason they had that genuine connection to each other. It was palpable.
This was such a great comedy!! Right up my alley. I was actually touched (emotionally 😜). This guy has some real heart!! Will be watching more for sure. ❤
For a solid 19 minutes and 20 seconds I was dying of laughter. Then my eyes got wide af for that soapbox at the end. I agree, but damn, chill man lol.
“U know what they called the Korean kid at my school?… Chinese!!” Lol. That was one of the best 1 liners in the whole set. Akaash on 🔥🔥
The entire country of Peru endearingly referred to its president, Alberto Fujimori, as "El Chino."
Yo I am Korean and I laugh so hard because that happened to me hahaha!
Any Latino that isn’t Mexican can relate to this.
Rodrigo Barraza Just like the N-word in the US, I guess.
they called ours wong ching, which was fucked up because his name was kevin
RIP Apu, his character was hilarious and even all my Asian friends loved him.
Man... Got me break down laughing!
I think this guys got it…..
This guys got the sauce lol
Great bits, great timing, great observation and presentation.
The transitions alone were 🔥🔥
This is hands down one of the funniest things I've seen in a long time. Holy shit, I needed this in my life and didn't know it until now. Then I saw, "Special thanks to Andrew Schulz" and things clicked. Andrew has been one of my favorite comedians since Benders with Chris DiStefano.
I’m glad I tuned into JRE for this ep. And love all these new Clip-Share specials
Same, got to know him from there a few mins ago.
Me too, this was hilarious.
What is the song from 0:15 - 0:30 ??
Loved the message at the end 👏 👏 👏
I don’t know man, I knew of him because of Andrew S (who is hella funny) & Flagrant 2 where Akaash spends most of the show laughing at Andrews jokes. I was not impressed by him on the JRE, he was not an entertaining or inspiring guest, seemed waaaay out of his league.
This definitely a masterpiece! ❤️🔥
You are funny af. Loved it. I'll get tickets if I know you're in the area. Sharing to anyone I'm not afraid to share things with lmao, lord knows there could be repercussions for that.
That was fantastic bro ! Also as a fat man myself, i salute you for your fat jokes 😜 also as a foreigner I salute you for that final statement !
You're really funny! I laughed so many times! Hope to see more!
Bro just told the truth and jokes at the same time, mad respect
“You didn’t let them say anything, and then one guy showed up and said everything”
That killed me.
because, it's partially true.
Yep and he was the best president the usa had in the past few decades. Yea hes a nut but the best of the worst
@mk I dunno man, the others may have been sinking the ship but at least they knew, D.T was shooting blind.
killed you and a lot more xD
What a legend this guy is.
That closing sequence 🔥🔥🔥🔥
Love ! love! love this ! Made me laugh so hard 😂
Thank you for such intelligent comedy! Challenging the current views and turning everything on its head is so much what this world needs ... a good large dose of healthy reality!
wow loved this special and the speech at the end really topped it off
That message at the end could apply to all first-generation Americans. We got it easier than our parents and there’s no excuse for us not to take it to the next level💯
It's objectively not true that we have it easier than them. Cost of college is higher, wages are lower, etc.
That’s certainly not true a lot of first generation Americans are born into poverty ridden neighborhoods, born to uneducated parents with literally no guidance besides their parents which in most cases is terrible
@OHP77 you need to get this idea out of your head that college is the only way to make it. There are multiple pathways to get good money, it may not be something you like but its there. The real question is if you really want to make it out of your situation you got to overcome obstacles. Just like Akaash said, no one owes you anything. You have to work. Many people have been successful without college and many people have been failures with college. It depends on hard you are willing to work.
@Edwardo Esparza If what you are saying is true then they (parents) could have worked hard back in their own country and made it there why migrate to a new country to work hard ?
Amen. This guy is legit. Hard to find people willing to come down hard with common sense these days.
Dood you made my day. Ive never heard of you but really enjoyed this piece. I hope for your brighter future in American history. Thanks so much...
Those last few seconds “all you had to say” hit me to my core.
Really great set, brother. You should definitely feel proud of your work.
