From the organizer:

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 Live Stand-Up at the British Comedy Awards — many a reviewer has fallen foul of Phil’s talent for making people laugh.

Prepare yourself for a wild night of comedic madness. This one could just bring down the roof.
