|Dangerous: Stand-up Hanoi will present an event featurikng female comedians tonight at Standing Bar.|Viet Nam News
Stand-up Hanoi will present an evening with female comedians tonight at the Standing Bar.
Heading the line-up will be well-known British comedian JoJo Smith, who was hailed by the Sydney Morning Herald as “The most dangerous woman in Britain”.
First stepping onto the stage in 1993, over the period of a decade Smith went from open spot to late-night TV personality, thanks to performances in all the top venues in Britain and her own show on ITV, Funny Business.
This was followed by international performances, including sell-out tours in South Africa, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Dubai, Abu Dhabi and both the Sydney and Melbourne comedy festivals. Since then she has consolidated her success by regularly topping the bill at venues throughout Britain.
Flying in as support for Smith will be Natalie Wegoda, a Thai-Chinese with a true passion for comedy. Natty started dabbling in Bangkok’s English stand-up scene after winning a one-off humorous story-telling contest in 2012. Since then, she has managed to squeeze in precious time to hone her skills in Bangkok and is an official member of the troupe at the city’s Comedy Club.
The night will also promote local comedians living and performing in Hà Nội, including American Sara Butryn, Irish Claire Keown and Vietnamese Mai Lan. Entrance fee is VNĐ200,000 in advance and VNĐ250,000 at the door. For further information, email firstname.lastname@example.org or go to Standing Bar, 170 Trấn Vũ Street. — VNS
