Phil Wang: Edinburgh Fringe 2017 interview

With multiple panel show appearances, Phil’s star is well on the rise. Expect big things from this show.


Hello. How are you today?

Bit hot.

At this stage, how closely does your programme blurb match the content of your show?

100% in that I am still called “Phil Wang”, and the show is still an hour of “comedy gold”.

Have the momentous events of 2016 affected your act in any way?

The EU referendum hurt my optimism for a single unified global society, and that has informed the tone of this show. There’s also a bit about lube. I don’t think 2016 had anything to do with that.

Who are you sharing a flat with this festival and how will you help each other survive the month?

Pierre Novellie, Garrett Millerick, Abigoliah Schauman and Glenn Moore. We will help each other survive the month by employing the age old British tradition of staying out of each other’s way.

Any shows you’re particularly excited about seeing?

Andy Daly!

Other than the great shows, what else are you looking forward to about your trip to Edinburgh this year?

Being in a Remain-voting country.

What celebrity death hit you the hardest in 2016 (mine was Wogan)?

Ronnie Corbett.

Here’s a space to write about anything you want. Go for it.

I would like to dedicate this interview and my entire Edinburgh Fringe run to Adam West.
