This past Wednesday on Dec. 16th (when we were all too busy with exams to bother updating), our nation’s most recognized comedian officially celebrated his 40th birthday. The special guest list included veteran stars like Thúy Nga, Nhật Cường, Kim Ngọc, Duy Phương, Hiếu Hiền, Chí Tài, Cát Phượng, Quốc Cường, Ngọc Huy, Đàm Vĩnh Hưng, Quách Tuấn Du, Phương Trang and even the V-popper ones (o.O?) like Chí Thiện and Tim Cát Vũ. But of course, the highlight of our birthday boy man’s night was still getting to celebrate it with the loving fam. which includes his 70+ yr old parents and younger brother–singer Dương Trịu Vũ.
