Stand-up Hanoi presents Matt Davis [US] & Fred Lê [US]@ Standing Bar

Stand-up Hanoi is excited to have award-winning comedian Matt Davis returning to Hanoi to perform his latest show, "BadFamiliar".

“Matt Davis killed it at Bengaluru Comedy Festival with his surprise special act!” -- Live in Style, Bengaluru, India

“Matt Davis brought tears to our eyes with his incredible solo show!” -- Comedian’s Talk Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

“Left the audience roaring” -- The Express Tribune, Karachi, Pakistan

“Near constant peals of laughter” -- UB Post, Ulan Bator, Mongolia

BadFamiliar: Live
The show follows the evolution of world-traveled, veteran performer Matt Davis’ ideas as they have developed while performing and traveling through over 250 cities across more than 40 countries.
Stitching together a personal narrative where he is often playing the fool, he jokes about even the largely accepted norms of language, nationality, and global or regional customs. A persistent foil to his own ideas, he offers up a studied cross-examination of his experiences as he hilariously tackles the underlying goal of this show: to dismiss the equation "familiar equals good."

“After slaying crowds last year in his Shanghai debut, he’s back again” -- That’s Magazine, Shanghai, China

“Humour comes easy when it runs in your bones! Great show!” -- StrayDog.in, Mumbai, India

Fred Lê, meanwhile, grew up in California, the son of Vietnamese parents. After experiencing what it was like to be the only Asian kid on the baseball team**, he moved to Vietnam to experience what it was like to be the only American in the office. Fred's laid-back but keen observations of daily life and penchant for the ridiculous have led to his success on stage and the television screen, where he can be seen hosting VTV International’s new show Vietnam A-Z.
**Two years Little League, wasn’t very good.

Entrance is VND 200K in advance and VND 250K on the door and includes a free glass of Heart of Darkness craft beer. Doors are at 8pm and the show will be hosted at Standing Bar, 170 Tran Vu, Truc Bach, Ba Dinh, Hanoi.
