We are pleased to announce that The Inevitable Inaugural Chaser Lecture on 22 August 2019 will be presented by Chinese journalist and comedian Vicky Xiuzhong Xu.
Vicky Xu is a journalist and stand-up comedian from China. She was trained to read propaganda news in China, but wasn’t very good at that and ended up dropping out. She went on to work for the ABC and The New York Times in Australia, where she wrote a number of articles that angered the Chinese authorities. With no prospects of returning home safely anytime soon, she invites her audience to laugh at Chinese politics with her in her comedy routines.
