Daily Telegraph Interview Jan 31st 2016- Ethnic Entertainment

I was recently interviewed by Jordan Baker from the Sydney Daily Telegraph regarding Ethnic Entertainment. As a female comedian funny person it was great to have a voice in the conversation. Thanks to fellow comedian Jennifer Wong for the hook up. My question is, if we took out the “Ethnic” out Ethnic Entertainment, what makes our story different from the Australian narrative? It is Australian. Sunday 31st of January 2016 – “WOG comics laugh all the way to the BANK.” www.dailytelegraph.com.au/…/56c6874ccb5f7d1627ae7b14295dc344 If you don’t have access., it is all good....

Am I funny without Phi and Me?

So. I’ve been contemplating a lot of things lately. Am I funny? Am I funny without Phi and Me? Am I funny without Kim Huong? Yes I am going through a comedy crisis. I’ve been so consumed by this character and show, that I think I am not funny anymore. I am not good at telling stories, and I am scared of suspenseful things, and yes I am an actor. I am more than the accent and my mother. I am Diana. There has been a curiosity for me to extend myself and move away from Phi and Me. In 2012 and 2013, I created two new shows called “Singing 5 ways to disappoint your Vietnamese mother” and “Viet Kieu, The No 1 Australian Vietnamese Outcast.” I am scared, and I self doubt myself. I got an email alert from Moosehead Awards, which is a organisation that supports the development of new shows for MICF. I had an urge, a tingle. Maybe do a show about me. About the characters in Diana’s life. We shall see. Due date is this Wednesday. Need to grow...

Being Dd – VBLOG Seven – Jealous

Last Saturday my little sister DJ Ethereal performed her first set, and my 60 year old Vietnamese mum attended the event to support my sister. She DANCED trance and EDM for 25MINS. Yes 25mins. This is her set! Follow her! And yes, there was a moment when I thought, where was my support? Where was my support 11 years ago, when I first started? My mum started to see me perform in 2009 in Miss Saigon, and it was the best feeling to have the support of my mum finally And I realise today, that without me breaking the wall down to follow my career choice, she may not have come to my sister’s event last Saturday. So just #LETITGO. Follow DJ Ethereal on FACEBOOK, Instagram and Soundcloud.  ...

How I met my mother III

How I met my mother 1 How I met my mother 2   So part three. I want to record a conversation with my mum about her experience on the boat. When my friend’s parents from Canada visited in April, my mum opened the pandora box. She opened minocin without perscription up her heart to them. It was amazing. So amazing. Why didn’t she say anything to us? I know why, but why not earlier than now. Just revealed that the escape out of Vietnam was terrifying, and there was fear of pirates. After 3 nights on the boat, they arrived at an island. My mum said they destroyed the boat, so they couldn’t be sent back to Vietnam, and she remembered sitting on the beach waiting for the Malaysian ship to come and collect them. They waited for the sun to raise. My mum watched the ocean, and wait. That is just so beautiful…and...
