Phan Club 

Wednesday, Mar 20 2013
Just before Easter comes “Far Easter,” a series of performances by Asian-American comedians. The shows are led by Dat Phan, winner of the first season of NBC’s Last Comic Standing in 2003, and an all-star series regular. Phan, who is Vietnamese-American, is not afraid to shock with stereotypes before shredding them to bits. He’ll bust out with broken English before shifting to American tones. He’s also got great instincts for physical comedy, his body and face amping up any story. A winning smile belies the unraveling of even more levels of racism, such as his being mistaken for Mexican by a dismissive stranger.
Thu., March 28, 8 p.m.; Fri., March 29, 8 & 10:15 p.m.; Sat., March 30, 7:30 & 9:45 p.m., 2013
