Diana Nguyen presents, as a part of the 2019 Melbourne International Comedy Festival,

Dirty Diana
Directed by Louise Joy Gorham

Diana’s nickname is DD.
If you say DD in Vietnamese it means GO GO.
If you add the correct tonality it means SLUT SLUT.

Special times.

Diana Nguyen just wants more work in the entertainment industry. She wants to buy a house and raise her fantasy children. And she suspects that if Pauline Hanson could focus more on Asians again she might be able to keep her dreams alive. Celebrating life through the trials of a 33-year-old single Vietnamese-Australian comedian, this is no longer her mother’s nightmare. It’s hers!

A left of the middle stand-up show, Dirty Diana hits the ground running at Storyville Melbourne this March amidst a blaze of storytelling, song, and dance. Covering an array of lively topics including her Mum, men, and her Mum’s opinion on the topic of her and men, join Diana as she masters the art of talking dirty during the 2019 Melbourne International Comedy Festival.

Diana Nguyen has performed all over Australia and Internationally with her co-created 4.5 Star theatre show Phi and Me and much lauded stand-up show Naked. She has appeared on Q&A (ABC), Fox Footy and Friday Front Bar, and various prostitute roles on Australian TV.
