Phil Wang - Philly Philly Wang Wang

The 2019 Edinburgh Fringe sell-out hit!

Following a sell-out 2018 tour, and fresh from a 2019 Edinburgh Fringe run that sold out in advance, Phil ‘Philly Philly Wang Wang’ Wang is back on tour with his newest show.

Phil has made a name for himself (that name being Phil Wang) exploring sex, romance, politics, and his mixed British-Malaysian heritage with shows that delight in his unique Wang brand of smart and silly. This one is about morality and the modern sense of self. Swell!

Suitable for ages 14+ years.

WHY? As seen on Taskmaster, Live at the Apollo and Netflix

Stephen K Amos: Before and Laughter

In 2010 the world was in a sorry state. Fast forward ten years and everything’s still going downhill.

Stephen has had his own share of highs and lows too. And when the world gives him lemons, he adds gin, tonic, ice and a healthy dose of humour. Forget the divisions and discord and immerse yourself in an hour of bridge building laughter to welcome the new decade.

As seen on BBC2's QI and Pilgrimage, ABC TV's The Project and BBC1's Live at the Apollo.

WHY? ‘Truly top class comedian’ EdFest

Mark Watson: How You Can Almost Win

In 2017, Mark Watson - a man prone to considerable anxiety, with multiple phobias and a history of piss-poor self-esteem - was asked to go on Celebrity Island with Bear Grylls.

It really wasn’t for him at all because his favourite things include safety, comfort, food and not being scared and miserable. But the experience changed the shambolic comedian for the better, and now he's written a sort of motivational talk about what it taught him. But still with jokes.

WHY? 'Quite unlike anything else I’ve seen in almost 20 years of covering the Fringe... witty, warm, perfectly judged' ★★★★★ Telegraph

'This is a stand-up operating at the very top of his game' ★★★★ Independent

'He always displays an innate understanding of what the audience wants... creating a bespoke experience for every gig, an added flourish to a strong hour of stand-up' ★★★★ Chortle

'A quick-fire hour of fun' ★★★★ Metro

Age guidance 14+ years
