Phil Wang is rapidly making a name for himself both in the UK and internationally with clever lines and a trademark laid-back style. As well as a hugely successful run of his new solo show, Philth, the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2015 also saw Phil debut his new sketch trio Daphne alongside Jason Forbes and George Fouracres. The show was a phenomenal success, completely selling out and being nominated for the prestigious Foster’s Newcomer Award. As well as two previous solo shows at the Edinburgh Fringe, Phil has also performed stand-up at the Montreal Just for Laughs Festival and at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival in 2015.
In 2015 Phil performed on The John Bishop Show (BBC1), Russel Howard’s Stand Up Central (Comedy Central) and appeared as a regular character in BBC3’s acclaimed new sitcom Top Coppers. He has also appeared on Funniest Moments of 2014 (Channel 4), The Rob Brydon Show (BBC2), Three at the Fringe (BBC3) and on BBC Radio 4’s Fresh From the Fringe and Best Behaviour, and the Comedy Live Lounge (BBC Radio 1). In 2010, the former President of the Cambridge Footlights won the Chortle Student Comedian of the Year Award and in 2011 Phil was awarded Comedy Central’s Funniest Student Award.
