Winner of the 2010 Chortle Student Comedian of the Year Award, the Comedy Central Live Funniest Student Award 2011, and previous President of the prestigious Cambridge Footlights, Phil Wang is rapidly making a name for himself as one of Britain’s funniest Engineering graduates.
In his brief time here on Earth, Phil has supported acts such as Greg Davies, Kurt Braunohler & Kristen Schaal, and Chris Addison with his dry, deadpan charm and an occasional ukulele.
Phil has appeared as a stand-up guest on The Rob Brydon Show (BBC1), been featured on Three at the Fringe (BBC3) and has enjoyed a fantastic Edinburgh debut as part of the Festival's longest-running stand-up showcase, The Comedy Zone, which has previously launched the careers of Dave Gorman, Harry Hill, Stewart Lee, Al Murray and Chris Ramsey.
Last summer, Phil embarked on the Footlights International Tour 2012, performing the Cambridge Footlights show, ‘Perfect Strangers’, around the UK and America with a sell-out month at the Edinburgh Festival.
Phil is currently working on his debut solo show, which he will bring to the Edinburgh Festival this summer.
“A skilful and hilarious individual”
