Phi and Me – 2011

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.

Phi and Me Too – 2012

The last time we met Phi he was struggling to get his mother’s approval to become a comedian. Now he’s back sharing his struggles with love, sex and marriage as a second generation Vietnamese Australian!

You know you’re Asian if:

  • Your parents tell you to eat onions because it cures cancer and it’s fact because they heard it on SBS
  • You have a bottle of Nuoc Mam (fish sauce) in the cupboard
  • Your parents yell into the phone when they talk to relos overseas
  • You know you can squat and eat PHO without falling over
