For the past 34 years, Diana Nguyen has been chasing things that didn’t belong to her - friendships, fame, love, and she always knew it was unhealthy. Fast forward to 2020 and she’s finally realised it’s about time she chased herself. A heady mix of storytelling, song, and dance, covering an array of lively topics in no particular order - including the ever popular take her Mother has on her choices - 'Chasing Keanu Reeves' celebrates life through the trials of a 34-year-old (short term) single Vietnamese-Australian comedian. |

“A friend gave me a book after realising I had a lot of anxiety when it came to love.”, explains Nguyen.

“The book was called 'Attached' by Rachel Heller and Amir Levine and when I read it hit me that I had been chasing everything else in my life, except me. Since that moment I’ve been working on loving me. Chasing me. With my past solo shows, 'Naked' was about being vulnerable and 'Dirty Diana' was about trusting men again in my life. 'Chasing Keanu Reeves' is about loving being a fool and the myriad of ways to keep getting back up when you fall down.”

15 years in industry and still classified as an “Emerging Comedian”, 'Chasing Keanu Reeves' is an unconventional, fast-paced, 50-minute celebration from the creator of much-lauded 'Phi and Me', 'Naked' and 'Dirty Diana'. A fresh new stand-up show all about being a fool and snort-laughing through it all. It’s also about Keanu Reeves. Spoiler alert.

Running from 26 March to 19 April as a part of Melbourne’s iconic International Comedy Festival, Diana is primed for the chase.

Diana Nguyen has performed all over Australia and internationally with her co-created theatre show 'Phi and Me' and stand-up shows 'Naked' and 'Dirty Diana'. She has appeared on The Project, Fat Pizza, Q&A (ABC), Fox Footy and Friday Front Bar, and various prostitute roles on Australian TV.
