Building on the success of a sold-out and critically-acclaimed run at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe with Kinabalu, comedian Phil Wang will be at The Poly in Falmouth on October 20 as part of his first nationwide tour.

Phil’s "cerebral charm" has seen him quickly become established on the airwaves. In the last year alone, he has appeared on Live at the Apollo, Have I Got News For You, Would I Lie to You?, 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown, Dave’s Unspun With Matt Forde (as the show’s regular Asian correspondent), Jack Dee’s Inauguration Helpdesk and Drunk History.

He has also written and starred in two series for BBC Radio 4 with his 2015 Foster’s Edinburgh Best Newcomer Award nominated sketch group Daphne.

An internationally-acclaimed live act, Phil has performed three solo stand-up shows (2015’s Philth, 2014’s Mellow Yellow and 2013’s Anti-Hero) in the UK as well as overseas at festivals including Montreal Just for Laughs Festival and Melbourne International Comedy Festival. In 2016 Phil toured Asia, performing in Hong Kong, Japan, Malaysia and Singapore.

Described as being "on the verge of going big," Phil Wang will be making what is believed to be his first appearance in Cornwall in Falmouth. For more information and tickets go to
