Dat Phan - Original Winner of NBC’s “Last Comic Standing” Headlines Reno Tahoe Comedy

Dat Phan, Original Winner of NBC’s “Last Comic Standing” Headlines Reno Tahoe Comedy

Join us at the Pioneer Underground as part of the 23rd Artown Festival.  Established in 1996, Artown is a leader in the Northern Nevada arts and culture industry using the festival as a platform to present culturally diverse and thought-provoking performances. Artown, a month-long summer arts festival, features about 500 events produced by more than 100 organizations and businesses in nearly 100 locations citywide.

Dat Phan is the Original Winner of NBC’s “Last Comic Standing” and is a Headlining Comedian touring live across the U.S. He has made numerous TV and movie appearances including “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno”, “Bones”, and “The Last Ship”. Most recently Dat has appeared on the Crackle TV show “StartUp” with Martin Freeman.

Dat Phan was born in Saigon, Vietnam and immigrated with his mother to San Diego, CA. He suffered through financial hardships most of his childhood. After 9/11 he realized life was short and decided to go for his dream to pursue comedy full time. Moving to LA he had to live out of his car and even after being robbed at gunpoint he wouldn’t stop pursuing his dream. Dat answered phones for The Improv in Hollywood during the day and tried to get as much stage time as possible at night; this meant he often went on well after midnight when crowds were often more drunk than coherent. Later, Dat took the risk and auditioned for the experimental, comedy-based show produced by NBC that would launch his career. The rest is history as he was named the funniest person in America on August 5, 2003.

Dat’s culturally insightful comedy inspects ridiculous stereotypes, and shares his experience of being a regular American guy with a Vietnamese heritage. His youthful energy and truly unique life experiences, including all the tough times, are combined to create the message of living your dreams and reaching out for the stars. Dat Phan’s mission is to bring a more positive portrayal of Asian-Americans to mainstream entertainment and Hollywood. “We want to be seen as more than just martial artists, or bad stereotype token roles in American TV & movies.”

Dat Phan has been included in The Smithsonian Institution’s exhibition of The Top 10 Most Influential Vietnamese-American Individuals. The DVD “Dat Phan Live” was released in January 2010 and is available from Amazon.com. Dat’s latest CD, “Born in Saigon…“ is now available on iTunes.
