Phil Wang: Sidesplitter

The comedian in conversation with John Kennedy

Saturday 11 June, 5-6pm

Baillie Gifford Big Tent


One of the UK’s most exciting stand-up comedians joins us for a light hearted look at his award winning memoir.

Phil will reflect on his experiences of dual heritage and explore the contrasts between Eastern and Western cultures, bringing his trademark cynicism and wit to topics ranging from food, family and assimilation to empire and soft power. Covering ground from comedy to colonialism, don’t miss this funny, wry and honest take on race and belonging.

‘One of my all- time favourite comedians, a true original. His comedy and words here are the hilarious breath of fresh air we all need.’ Amy Schumer

John Kennedy is a DJ and presenter for Radio X.

Each pair of tickets includes a copy of the paperback of Phil Wang’s book Sidesplitter (RRP: £10.99).
