Jo Koy is back in studio to further cement his ACS legendary guest status, Dawson has a slick intro and Adam is getting right to the business.
Adam is setting up “Tell Me Have You Seen Her?” by the “Chi-Lites” from 1971 for Bung Lau Su to audition for a spot in the group.

Jo is now in character as this fake agent character who represents Bruce and Bung.
Adam is trying to figure out how Brandon Lee died and BB has a weird comment about racism regarding the recasting for “The Crow II” he’s seemingly ignorant of the movie’s premise and the overarching theme that has nothing to do with a specific character or race, it’s a revenge premise.
