Dat Phan is the original winner of NBC's Last Comic Standing, and is a headlining comedian touring live across the U.S. He has made numerous TV and Movie appearances including The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, The Family Guy and Cellular. Dat Phan Productions is working on several upcoming projects including a live DVD & CD and preproduction on a movie titled Yellow Fever.
Dat was born in Saigon, Vietnam and grew up struggling and poor in San Diego, CA. His culturally insightful comedy inspects ridiculous stereotypes, and shares his experience of being a regular American guy with a Vietnamese heritage. He has been included in The Smithsonian Institution's exhibition of The Top 10 Most Influential Vietnamese-American Individuals.
Dat Phan's mission is to bring a more positive portrayal of Asian-Americans to mainstream entertainment and Hollywood. "We want to be seen as more than just martial artists, or bad stereotype token roles in American TV & Movies."
