This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

More on the comics:
Garrett Millerick is an acclaimed British stand-up comedian, writer and director, and an increasing force to be reckoned with on the UK Circuit. In the few short years since debuting in new act competitions, he has established a reputation as one of the stand-out live acts of his generation.
In 2018, his solo show Sunflower became one of the best reviewed and most talked about performances of the Edinburgh Festival. It played to packed houses throughout the month, and an additional show at The Pleasance Cabaret Bar was added due to phenomenal demand. It went on to have a gloriously successful run at London’s Soho Theatre in 2019.
As well as being in high demand on both the alternative and club circuits in the UK, Garrett’s stand up has seen him tour Europe, Australia and Asia.
His debut radio sitcom Do Gooders was recently recorded for Amazon’s Audible platform with an all-star cast featuring Jack Dee and Meera Syal and produced by Hat Trick Productions. It is currently being developed for television.
“A virtuoso display of unforgivingly grumpy stand up delivered with fire in his soul.” CHORTLE
“Wickedly funny… it’s hard to stop and pick holes when you’re being carried away by this powerhouse performance.” THE TELEGRAPH
“He’s the comic that other comics want to be. Brilliant.” THREE WEEKS
“[The show] soars once you realise he’s making a big point about not having to make big points… Wonderfully funny.” THE TIMES
“Hard-hitting standup.” THE GUARDIAN
“Just wants to entertain you and does it superbly.” THE MIRROR
Uy Le is one of Vietnam’s leading comedians, based in his home city of Ho Chi Minh. His classic deadpan style of non-sequiturs and wordplay has entertained both local and expat audiences across the region, including in Singapore, China, Thailand and Cambodia.
Uy Le has also won over judges, triumphing in the 2018 Vietnam Comedy Competition and representing his country in the finals of the Magners International Comedy Competition. He was named 1st Runner-up in the 2019 Bangkok International Comedy Competition.
Sam Thomas may just be a local English teacher with stars in his eyes and a dream in his heart, but he appears destined for greatness having been a stalwart of the Phnom Penh comedy scene for the past 7 years.
Sam was a top-finishing finalist at the Bangkok Comedy Competition in both 2015 and 2018, and made the finals at the 2017 Hong Kong International Comedy Festival. He has gigged extensively across Cambodia and the region, including in Saigon, Hanoi, Bangkok, Yangon, Kuala Lumpur, Singapore, Hong Kong and Jakarta, as well as in New York City and Boston.
“Hilariously self-defacing, clever comedy.” – THE ADVISOR
Known for his frustrated delivery, his intelligence, and his dark point-of-view, Paul Blomeyer has delighted audiences all over Southern California, the Middle East and Southeast Asia.
Younger audiences appreciate his anti-professor persona while older audiences like him because he’s old and, like them, he’s irritated by the optimism and energy of the young.
He was selected to perform at the World Series of Comedy in the United States and the Magner’s International Comedy Festival in Bangkok, Thailand. He has also won Uncle Clyde’s Comedy Contest, placed second in Hollywood’s Funniest and came in third in the Los Angeles Comedy Contest.
