Vong Show has produced multiple award-nominated audio podcasts including RICE: Asian Comedy Podcast (Asian arts and culture focused), GAYSIAN (interview-based), and You Better Represent! (exploring representation in cinema and television). Stay tuned for his latest and most personal podcast project yet, ‘The Vong Show’ podcast launching in late 2022! Generally I only keep one podcast active at a time so the older podcasts are presented here as an archive while I’m working to launch my newest podcast project.
‘The Vong Show’ Podcast Launching 2022!
I’ve always had the an unimaginably awful memory. It may be from getting my head dropped on pavement when I was a child or from decades of oxygen depravation due to severe sleep apnea. As such, there’s are huge swaths of my life story are extremely fuzzy or missing altogether. I’ve struggled with poor memory so much that I cried in the theatre when I watched Disney’s ‘Finding Dory’ because I finally felt represented on screen… by a fish with bad memory no less!
Join me as I interview friends and family from all phases of my life from elementary school in Winnipeg (murder capital of Canada!) through to current mid-life living out my dreams in Toronto as a standup comedian. I’ll talk to them about my favourite topic, me! Seriously though I’m hoping to learn more about myself and see my life reflected through the eyes of people whom I care about the most and who also care about me.
