As a comedian, Bobby Lee has to travel a lot and he’s getting a little annoyed with airport security.

“They have a big sign that says, ‘Weapons prohibited,’ ” he tells an audience. “Now they have pictures of weapons, like we don’t know what weapons look like. There was picture of a gun, a knife, then nunchucks and a Chinese star. I’m thinking, ‘Are there a lot of ninjas that fly Southwest?’”

Lee is probably best-known for his stint on MADtv where he spent eight seasons as a cast member playing characters Johnny Gan, Bae Sung and “Average Asian,” as well as doing various impressions like Connie Chung and Kim Jong-il.
