Jono Lee is the only Korean-Australian comedian in the universe*, and has been tentatively prodding at the Sydney comedy scene for four years. He possesses an incisive world view, which is rare in young comedians. This is mostly because at 32, he’s not that young, but he can fake it because Asians age on a different time scale to other people.
In Doghugger, he explores the relationship between humans and man’s best friend, effortlessly weaving together heartwarming jokes about dog ownership and harder edged comedy about the wider world. Can you teach a dog to appreciate music? What happens when an ethnic comedian helps his professional interpreter mother on subtitles for movies on SBS? How does a man-crush on the Bondi Vet shape a straight man’s views on gay rights? All of these questions are answered in Doghugger.
*Probably. He didn't actually do any research.
