Sydney boy Aaron Chen is a stone cold killer with exquisite mic technique, and he’s going to bring you the freshest and most splendid comedy you will have ever seen.
Aaron made his mark on Australian comedy with his debut solo show entitled ‘The Infinite Faces Of Chenny Baby’. He toured nationally in front of sold out crowds and rave reviews earning him the sought-after award for Best Newcomer at the 2017 Melbourne International Comedy Festival and Sydney Comedy Festival. He backed this up in 2019 with ‘Piss Off (just Kidding)’, Aaron became a festival favourite amongst fans and peers and was went onto take home the Director’s Choice Award at the 2019 Melbourne International Comedy Festival.
Quite by accident Aaron became the face of Snoccer after his live reporting at the Liverpool vs Sydney game in 2017 caused controversy amongst fans. The unconventional interview went viral and was loved by viewers that got the joke and hated by others. Aaron also starred in his very own Tonight Show, aptly named Aaron Chen Tonight filmed live in Café Lounge, Surry Hills and broadcast on ABC TV.
Previous to this Aaron has amassed quite the collection of awards including Melbourne International Comedy Festival’s Class Clowns in 2012, the Director’s Choice Award alongside a couple of other troubled boys in 2016, and the 2013 Raw Comedy State final landing himself in the National Grand Final when he was just 17.
Aaron has also performed at the popular music festival Splendour in The Grass, supported International Comedian Ronny Chieng on his Live Australian Tour, had a featured role in ABC’s Ronny Chieng International Student (ABC), and Back In Very Small Business, as well as appearances in Ch 7’s Orange Is The New Brown and Network 10’s Drunk History.
Aaron is still touring and about to head overseas to make his Edinburgh Festival Fringe debut.
