Netflix Star Comic Iliza Shlesinger to Perform in Saigon, Hanoi This Month

American stand-up comedian Iliza Shlesinger gained popularity after she became the first woman and the youngest comedian to win NBC’s talent competition Last Comic Standing.

Since then, Shlesinger has moved on to release several successful Netflix specials, including War Paint, Freezing Hot, Confirmed Kills and Elder Millennial. She recently released a fifth Netflix special titled Iliza: Unveiled.

This February, she will visit Hanoi and Saigon for two stand-up shows as part of her 2020 "The Forever Tour," according to Shlesinger's official website. The tour will start on February 7 in Las Vegas and end on May 15 in Dublin, Ireland.

The show in Hanoi is hosted by Stand-up Hanoi and DCI Media JSC on February 20 at the Youth Theatre of Vietnam. Saigon Funny People, The Comedy Club Bangkok and Saigon International Comedy will host the show in Saigon, which will take place on February 21 at the Sofitel Saigon Plaza Hotel. After the Saigon show, Shlesinger will perform in Bangkok the next day.

The comic will also appear in the upcoming Netflix film Spenser Confidential, directed by Peter Berg, with Mark Wahlberg playing the protagonist.

Tickets for the two shows in Hanoi and Saigon are available for purchase via Ticketbox and PouchNation.
