News: More 2020 Dates for Phil Wang

Following selling out an entire month-long run at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and playing Soho Theatre and Leicester Square Theatre, whilst also selling out multiple regional venues with others reaching capacity in 2020, Phil Wang has added 10 shows to his biggest nationwide tour. From 3rd February to 29th April, Phil will explore morality and the modern sense of self in his stand-up show Philly Philly Wang Wang over 35-dates around the country including Salford’s Lyric Theatre, Cardiff’s St David’s Hall and Newcastle’s Tyne Theatre. 

Phil has made a name for himself exploring sex, romance, politics, and his mixed British-Malaysian heritage, in shows that delight in his unique Wang brand of smart/silly stupidity.  Phil will return as a panelist alongside host Charlie Brooker on Have I Got News For You (BBC One) on 20th December, adding to numerous broadcast credits including hosting Live at the Apollo (BBC Two), Taskmaster (Dave), performing as one of only two non-US acts on The Comedy Line-Up (Netflix), QI (BBC Two), Would I Lie to You? (BBC One), 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown (Ch4), The Last Leg (Ch4), Unspun With Matt Forde (Dave), Roast Battle and Drunk History (both Comedy Central) and Jack Dee’s Helpdesk (BBC Two).

Phil recently used his outsider perspective to dissect the British Empire in a new BBC Radio 4 stand-up show, Wangsplaining. He has also written and starred in two series of Daphne Sounds Expensive for BBC Radio 4 with his Foster’s Newcomer Award nominated sketch trio, Daphne. Earlier this year Phil began co-hosting podcast BudPod with Phil Wang & Pierre Novellie.

An internationally acclaimed live act, Phil has performed at festivals including Montreal Just for Laughs Festival, Melbourne International Comedy Festival and the New Zealand Comedy Festival. His last critically-acclaimed live show, Kinabalu, sold out at Edinburgh Festival in 2017 and the subsequent national tour was extended through 2018 including four weeks at London’s Soho Theatre.
