I just caught bits and pieces of Last Comic Standing, the competition Dat Phan won to get this Comedy Central special, and from what I saw, I just didn't think Dat was the funniest person on there. My vote would have gone to Rich Vos, but that's just my opinion.
So as I'm watching this special, I'm trying to figure out how Dat won. I still didn't find his material too funny. I had a few chuckles like when he talks about his mom trying to set him up with an Asian girl and when he did his pregnancy test joke, but there weren't really any laugh-out-loud moments. I think he was voted in because he just seems likeable. That's about it. People feel they can relate to him, and he's slightly funny, and he wins!
This isn't to say I don't like Dat Phan; it's just that I've found other Comedy Central Presents comedians to be much funnier, like Dane Cook, Stephen Lynch, and Brian Regan. More power to Dat in his career, but I don't see him being a comic powerhouse.
My IMDb Rating: 6/10
