HUNG LE

Hung is a violinist turned comedian who first made his mark in 1987 as the winner of the TV Show "Hey Hey Its Saturday's Red Faces".

Melbourne, VIC, Australia

Since then, he has appeared at numerous comedy festivals and venues both here and overseas. The Vietnamese-born performer, now based in Melbourne, toured in the ethnic laugh spectacular Wog-a-Rama and featured in the ABC documentary "What's so Funny?", about comedy, ethnicity and political correctness. He has written his first book "The Yellow Peril From Sin City" having recently contributed to the soon-to-be-released anthology of new writing entitled "Hot Type", both for Penguin.

Hung performed his first show "Ho and the Honky" at the Nightcat in Fitzroy as part of the Melbourne Fringe Festival in October 1996.

In March this year he did a very successful spot at "Jongleurs" in London and returned just in time to launch his first book "The Yellow Peril From Sin City".

He has just finished a very successful season performing at the The Melbourne International Comedy Festival in his new show called "Now and Zen".
