Melbourne International Comedy Festival proudly presents

Phil Wang Kinabalu (United Kingdom,Malaysia)

Melbourne International Comedy Festival proudly presents

Phil Wang Kinabalu (UK,MYS)

Phil Wang is a son of the British Empire. But in a world intent on building walls and bolstering borders, what is a Commonwealth man to do? Some blistering new comedy gold – that’s what.

As a Malaysian-born son of Chinese and British parents, Phil Wang has a unique and nuanced view of ethnicity and identity. In Kinabalu, he explores his ‘immigrant patriotism’ with silliness and sophistication in equal parts.

Fresh from a sell-out UK tour, award-winning Phil returns to Australia with his signature cerebral charm and personal/political comedy. Since wowing Melbourne audiences in New Order in 2015, Phil has gone on to appear on Live at the Apollo, Would I Like to You? and Have I Got News For You.

‘Hugely entertaining... a unique and properly funny stand-up comic. ★★★★' The Times (UK)

‘A satisfying product of his brains, comic nous, and unique style. ★★★★' Chortle (UK)
