The group now has 20 members, including 10 young comic artists. 

“We have received many congratulations as well as encouragement from fans on our channel,” said Le, who has been involved in stand-up comedy since 2016. 

“Our videos featuring stand-up comedy express our gratitude to fans and ask them to continue to watch. Audience support helps us to bring laughter and meaningful life lessons through our videos,” he added.

"Interesting plots related to young people and their challenges and opportunities in modern life have helped comedy series from FAP TV become popular,” said Trinh Anh Nguyen, a lecturer in marriage and family law at the HCM City University of Law. 

“I like Saigon Tếu. Their videos are funny and meaningful. The plot is close to my daily life at home and school, and the actors are cute,” she said.

Saigon Tếu will offer livestream shows and online workshops about theatre and comedy to entertain and educate young audiences.
