Philly Philly Wang Wang
Following a sell-out 2018 run, Phil ‘Philly Philly Wang Wang’ Wang is back out on the road with a new hour of absolute gold.
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!
As seen on Taskmaster, Live at the Apollo and Netflix.
