Phil Wang The Real Hero In All This (UK)

The people of Melbourne have shown they can get through just about anything. But can they handle another stand-up show from Phil Wang?

Hot on the heels of his critically acclaimed and critically delayed Netflix special Philly Philly Wang Wang, Phil brings his highly infective British-Malaysian variant of comedy to the Land Down Under once more.

Phil’s last show in Melbourne was in 2019, so immunity to his charm has faded significantly. He is back at last with a new hour of absolute gold about life, love, and living through the most unprecedented time since precedents began. He’s back. You’re back. And you’re long overdue your next dose of Wang.

‘Wang delivers an hour of clever and confident stand-up that abounds in ludicrous wit in which he unerringly turns the race card into an ace card. ★★★★' The Age

‘Intelligent, self-unserious, and studded with memorable one-liners. ★★★★' The Guardian

‘Self-depreciating wit, nerdish charm and a deceptively gentle delivery that can blindside you at any time.’ The Sunday Times (UK)

'A unique and properly funny stand-up ★★★★' The Times (UK)
