After three successful iterations of their improvised reality singing competition, ASAP is back with a fourth season of “I Am Brother Hand”!

And at the end of it all, you get to vote for your favourite contestant, just like in a real reality singing competition!

Opening the show for us are our lovely friends at 华语苦 (Hua Yu Ku a.k.a. Chinese Language Suffering), a bilingual improv group who are linguistically deficient in Mandarin but trying their darnest to be more proficient at it.
