All the way from Springvale Australia, A Vietnamese Australian family comedy
compared to 42nd Kumar Street (UK) and Fresh off The Boat (USA)

Phi is a second generation Vietnamese Australian. Phi appears to be a typical Vietnamese boy, who studies hard to make his mother proud, but deep down inside all Phi ever wanted in life was to be a superstar.
Phi and Me uses humor to highlight issues faced by second generation Vietnamese Australian families, including stereotyping and the adversities his mother faced as a refugee. From language barriers to getting through Australian customs, Phi shares funny stories about his dysfunctional relationship with his mum.

Comedy Beast Magazine -“The show is well scripted, well rehearsed and cheekily plays on a number of Asian stereotypes making it quite funny to watch…” by Chris Dewberry

The Pun - Phi and Me
If you enjoyed the material of Russell Peters, Hung Le and Anh Do and the style of The Kumars at No 42 and Greek on the Roof you will certainly appreciate Phi and Me. This show is very family friendly and would appeal to those who seek a bit more substance to their entertainment. Click Here
