Joe Vu

Joe, Vu

After winning awards in advertising for a Superbowl commercial and a Ted Talks 10 Global Ads worth sharing, 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 next to DJ Demers (JFL homegrown winner, most viewed comic on Conan Youtube, America’s Got Talent). From there he's gone on to perform at the Border City Comedy Festival and JFL42. He has opened for Aparna Nancherla, Myq Kaplan, and Jackie Kashian.

Most recently he placed second (again) in Absolute Comedy's inaugural Toronto Prove You’re a Comic Competition thus cementing his position as second best. Numero de dos. 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.
