After winning awards in advertising for a Superbowl commercial and a Ted Talks 10 Global Ads Worth Spreading, Joe Vu abandoned his lucrative career in advertising to be totally disowned by his Asian parents.
In his first year, he placed runner up in the Toronto Comedy Brawl. From there he's gone on to perform at The Winnipeg Comedy Festival and on CBC’s The Debaters.
His comedy comes from the perspective of the under represented Southeast Asian voice. Absurd, intelligent, and insightful, his routine is at once both entertaining and educational.
