Tien is someone who’s in cultural limbo. Being born here, Australians don’t consider him an Australian and the Vietnamese don’t really consider him as Vietnamese either. This allows Tien to bring a unique outsider’s perspective to his comedy, bringing laughs with social commentary and absurd observations. You may not agree with some of his outlandish viewpoints but at least it will be funny.
Tien was handpicked in 2013 to be one of five comedians in the Melbourne International Comedy Festival’s prestigious Comedy Zone – a showcase of up-and-comers from around the country. In 2014 he was nominated for the Best Newcomer Award.
“…packed a real punch.”
