Jak Nguyen Double Happiness!!

Jak Nguyen's style of easy going comedy sees him consistently performing at weddings all around Melbourne, and for the past 10 years he's become a regular fixture in many married couples' happily ever after. 

The 2020 Melbourne International Comedy Festival is his comedy festival stage debut. 

Critics have described Double Happiness!! as both "captivating" and "mesmerising", as Jak weaves hilarious stories from crazy perspectives of his many years of experience in the wedding industry. 

From bizarre reasons to why people get married, to the rock star requests from brides and grooms, Jak takes you on an hilarious behind-the-scenes tour to what makes a wedding 'The Happiest Day of Your Life', shedding light on both white lies and cold truths.

Even when you're not even the one getting married. 

For example, everyone is always telling him that everything changes after you get married. 


Cold beer is still delicious, and a well-timed fart can still put Jak in a good mood for a week. 

To be clear Jak has zero Australian and international TV credits or accolades. His biggest achievement to date being triple digit likes on a picture of a Shiba Inu he posted on Instagram. 

The one time he received a standing ovation was when he fell off stage in a high school rendition of Les Miserables

Jak hasn't been on TV, radio or even a murder mystery podcast, but he was offered the chance to perform stand-up in a fried chicken bar like he's in a Shaun Micallef sketch – and jumped at the opportunity to share the good times. 

See him perform live, as a night out with Jak is a night with a mate and easy laughs. Cracker of a good time. 

Come get some Double Happiness!!

Suitable for audiences 18+
