Helen Hong: Helen Hong is a comedian, TV host, matchmaker, and star of Logo Channel’s reality dating series “Setup Squad.” Helen’s adorable stage presence and mischievous point of view have landed her on The Huffington Post’s Favorite Female Comedians list and a profile in The New York Times. She’s been featured on E!, TLC, and is a frequent host of the PBS syndicated talk show “Asian America.”

When she’s not playing cupid or making people laugh, Helen enjoys karaoke, NPR, and cheese.
