Tết is coming and we are rounding up a huge year for stand-up comedy in Hanoi IN STYLE!
Having already performed in Vietnam to sellout audiences — last year she took both Hanoi and Saigon by storm — indomitable British comic GINA YASHERE will once again be on a mission: to make you laugh! The British correspondent for Comedy Central’s Daily Show, and about to be featured in the Netflix series, Standups Season 2, Gina is hitting big time at the moment. So big that when she’s back in her native London she’s playing to audiences of over 2,000. Here it will be less than 150!
