Description

Following a sell-out 2017 run, Phil ‘Philly Philly Wang Wang’ Wang is back with a new hour of absolute gold. Phil has made a name for himself (that name being Phil Wang) exploring sex, romance, politics and his mixed British-Malaysian heritage, in shows that delight in his unique Wang brand of smart/silly stupidity. This one is about morality and the modern sense of self. Swell! As seen on Have I Got News for You, Live at the Apollo and Taskmaster. ‘This is intoxicating stuff’ **** (Telegraph). ’Stand-up dreamland’ **** (Guardian).

The Guardian (4/5 stars) 94 days ago

Phil Wang made a little piece of fringe history this year before the festival even began, when he sold out in advance his entire run in the Pleasance’s Cabaret bar. You can see why he’s popular: the new show – his first since 2017’s terrific Kinabalu – is high-end standup...
