VIDEO: Glee's Harry Shum Jr. in Wong Fu Comedy Sketches

Like many shows, "Glee" is on hiatus. And those of us who haven't purchased tickets to their summer tour are having withdrawals. What have the Gleeks been up to? Lea Michele laid down some vocals for 2012's animated Wizard of Oz and smooched Ashton Kutcher for the upcoming romance anthology New Years Eve. Cory Monteith is romancing Katie Cassidy on the big screen in Monte Carlo. Chris Colfer is gearing up for his first screenwriting and starring role in the feature film comedy Struck by Lightning. Matthew Morrison is prepping for the adaptation of What to Expect When You're Expecting with Cameron Diaz. Jane Lynch is filming The Three Stooges. And Kevin McHale did a cameo in Katy Perry's "Last Friday Night" music video as her dork-in-shining-armor.

Harry Shum Jr., our lovable Mike Chang, went a different route. He went viral. Last month, he collaborated with the Youtube auteurs behind Wong Fu Productions to create three shorts that showcased Shum's underrated comic timing and physical comedy. This was a great idea and will hopefully lead to more roles. My favorite was the "3 Steps to Self Esteem" that has a really funny twist ending. (And yes that's famed photographer Tyler Shields playing the mugger.) Watch all three of the 2-3 minute shorts below:
