Born and raised in Zambia, Africa, Lawrence Kao began his road to artistic inclination with an interest in African cultural dancing, dancing used to ward off danger and to ask for prosperity. Within a year, enthusiasts from multiple dance conservatories began to take notice of his prodigious capacity to express feelings and emotions in a celebratory manner. And finally, at the age of 5, Lawrence, or Lorenzo, as they began to call him, started performing philanthropic one-man productions in third world countries, in order to express his concern for political rights and civil liberties.
But his desire for make believe did develop into a love affair for acting and entertaining. While studying theatre at UCI, he began dancing with Kaba Modern, which led to his participation on MTV's America's Best Dance Crew. He was recently the principal lead in an East West Players production of Krunk Fu Battle Battle. You can also catch him on an episode of TNT's Franklin & Bash, a Sony commercial, or some bootleg films he sells in the back of his trunk (five bucks a piece).
He is now roaming the mean streets of Hollywood, accompanied by his manager Chris Roe to fend off Lawrence Kao unbelievers. And now you can see him in I Hate You as Chi, his alter ego, obsessed over Atari and John Cena. Support this film!
