Kelso Dowling – The first guest of A Vietnam Podcast Season 5 on Seven Million Bikes

Available in : Vietnamese


January 12.2021


Kelso, one of the newest comics in the burgeoning Saigon comedy scene, moved to Vietnam after a trip around Southeast Asia, and, having spent much of their formative years bouncing around the States and beyond on the “military brat” circuit,  Kelso once again uprooted themselves and settled in Hanoi.


They recently made the move from Hanoi, but don’t bother asking which is better – “they’re just different.” After only 18 months of doing stand-up comedy, Kelso has honed their style to approach weighty topics with an air of breezy honesty and self-awareness.

Seven Million Bikes; A Vietnam Podcast


On stage, Kelso can be seen breaking down social constructs around gender, consent and monogamy, skillfully navigating that territory from behind the mic.  Sobriety has also found a place in their life and, naturally, their set – and they’ve perhaps found it a bit easier to grapple with onstage than in the minefield of dating. “I never realized how much I relied on alcohol to flirt.”





On January 16th Kelso will be The Headliner at 1920 Prohibition Bar in D1, performing their longest set yet. This show is nearly sold out already so contact Seven Million Bikes to book tickets.
