If you know anything about the UK comedy scene then you will have heard of the legendary Scottish comedian PHIL KAY. A storyteller and a self-proclaimed master of mirth and mayhem, having Phil perform in Hanoi is a little bit of a coup. The guy is a comedic genius. And it’s not just us saying that....
Constantly playing with words and bubbling with exuberance, when Phil Kay gets on the stage he dances around it like a giant child who has woken up with an adult’s body. As Claire Smith from The Scotsman wrote in a review of this year’s show at the Edinburgh Fringe, “He is fertile, feral, otherworldly and exploding with energy… What an absolute joy to see Phil Kay bringing a sweaty cellar full of people to full-on, excited, rolling laughter.”
It’s not just The Scotsman who think highly of this comedic maestro. On the scene for almost three decades — in 1994 he won the award for Best Stand-Up at the British Comedy Awards — many a reviewer has fallen foul of Phil’s talent for making people laugh.
“The man remains one of the most consistently brilliant and uncompromising comedians of his and future generations,” writes Metro. Time Out London also has its say: “[Phil Kay is a] … mesmerising headf*** genius.” Prepare yourself for a wild night of comedic madness. This one could just bring down the roof.
Phil will be supported by some of Hanoi's leading local comedy talent. Host for the night is FRED LE who has turned away from the glitz and glamour of the LA comedy scene to make his mark in Hanoi. NATHAN SPROULE has all the class you'd expect of a Sheffield-born funnyman, and delivers his deadbeat observations and absurd stories through verses often devoid of rhyme or reason. Minkus, Unkle Minkus, or simply 'The Mink' has been performing in Hanoi for years; his most recent show was outstanding, and surely made all his ex-wives jealous. Finally, Mike Ellis has been twatting around on Hanoi stages for far too long now and should really get out more so we offered him 5 minutes to share his ramblings with you all....
