Next up on the menu is Martin Mor, a comic from Northern Ireland with a wit as sharp as the tips of his enormous moustache. He’ll be in Hanoi on Wednesday May 13 at The House of Son Tinh, the established home of stand-up comedy in Hanoi, before heading south to play Phatty’s on Thursday May 14. Despite its sports bar status, Phatty’s is quickly becoming Saigon’s hottest comedy spot despite its brutal disregard for the laws of grammar.
Mor’s praises have been sung by no less than the late footballer George Best, who once famously declared, “I spent a lot of money on booze, birds, and fast cars. The rest I squandered.” Mor, a one-time circus performer, is certainly no stranger to the wild and raucous world of comedy — he’s spent nearly 25 years on stage, performing for everyone from the British Royal Family to a horde of Italian convicts.
Joining Mor in front of Vietnam’s sober, supportive patrons (huh?) will be Thailand-based comic Delfin Solomon, who is inspired by Russell Peters, Chris Rock, Louis CK, and a bunch of other comics you’d be stupid not to like. Also performing with him is Stand-Up Saigon's very own, US-born comic, Devin Monaghan. In Hanoi, further support will be provided by local Vietnamese and expat comics from the Hanoi Comedy Collective.
