Opening Act: Tony Vinh
Tony is often described by fellow comedians as the “Asian Chris Rock”. They even call him “Chris Wok.” Not because his delivery can sometimes sound like the legendary comedian, but because Tony’s comedy offers a similarly sharp, clever and absurd commentary on life– only from the point of view of an Asian-American who grew up in the Midwest.
Today, Tony is a nationally touring comedian performing at clubs everywhere. He has also performed in Asia and Europe, and he’s been a crowd favorite at festivals like Second City LA Comedy Festival, San Diego Comedy Festival, Gilda’s Laughfest, Westside Showdown, Funniest Person In Austin contest, Out of Bounds Comedy Festival and the Detroit Comedy Festival.
In addition to being on stage, Tony is finishing up his first short film he wrote and directed, and he’s working on a one-man performance titled, No Subtitles Needed.
Tony was born and raised in Kansas City, and has also lived in Detroit and Austin. He currently resides in Los Angeles.
