“Dirty Diana shimmers into

your hearts.”

– The Beat

In 2019, I returned with my second stand up show “Dirty Diana.”

“She just want 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, thisis no longer her mother’s nightmare. It’s hers.”

The show premiered at:

  • Adelaide Fringe – March 2019
  • Melbourne International Comedy Festival – March/April 21 shows

Directed by Louise Joy Gorham / Stage managers Ayu Melinda, Min Southall and Alex Struk.


Reviews & Media

“Dirty Diana is… always funny and should be a ‘must see’ on your Comedy Festival list.”

– 4 Stars, BeMelbourne

“Good comedy does more than just make people laugh. Great comedy like this connects the audience with the performer, and also with one another. Even when the narrative isn’t entirely perfect, Dirty Diana makes you laugh, sometimes with a sense of helplessness because that which is so fucked up is also so true, sometimes your eyes are a little moist because the heart feels a gentle touch.”

– Peril Magazine

“Vietnamese-Australian comic Diana Nguyen is a vivacious and effervescent force.”

– Arts Hub

“Stripping herself back and becoming vulnerable, this heartfelt comedian has nothing to hide as she is beautifully funny – a truly lovely human being.”
