Comedy lovers and hecklers get ready. After a short but well-needed hiatus, Saigon International Comedy is returning to Ho Chi Minh City on Wednesday Mar. 18 with a great, post St. Patrick’s Day line-up.
Moving venues — the show will now take place at well-known Aussie bar, Phatty’s — leading the comedic line will be gagsters Aidan Killian (IRE) and Graham Wooding (UK).
Quitting investment banking in Tokyo to “save this world one laugh at a time”, Aidan Killian has sold out theatres in New York and London, performed all over Asia and is the only comedian to have done aSitting Room tour of Ireland. Often compared to Russell Brand, last year Aidan took his comedy showJesus versus Buddha to the Edinburgh Fringe. Chortle gave it a four-star review and described it as: “Raw and stimulating ... Has probably more ideas and philosophy crammed into it than 100 other shows put together. It’s brimming, chaotic, digressive and smart.”
Graham Wooding started comedy after leaving performing arts college and driving comedians to gigs around the UK. He quickly found a love and talent for stand up and after only 11 shows won a coveted new act award. He then joined the professional circuit and spent six years honing his craft and touring the UK, performing solo and with comedy groups. He is a veteran of five Edinburgh festivals having worked as a performer, writer and assistant director.
A founding member of the Bangkok Hilarious comedy club, Graham is also the director of a performance festival soon coming to Thailand. He has performed in three movies (he was a stunt man inThe Railway Man) as well as acting in TVCs for brands such as Jonnie Walker.
