Remember way back when NBC launched Last Comic Standing and Dat Phan emerged as its first winner?
Of course you remember, either because you were surprised that Ralphie May didn't win, or because you were busy changing your stand-up material to include more detailed notebooks and stereotypical accents of your parents. If you didn't remember, it's because Phan didn't become a household name after winning the big cash money and development deal.
Well, now it's 2011, and Phan is back on your TV screens once more, this time playing up the Vietnamese accent as a classic "Vietnam movie" song plays in the background for a DirecTV commercial. Do you think in the audition, they asked Phan if he could do his best Ken Jeong "Mr. Chow"? Or did they just have to look at Phan's stand-up clips?
