Phil Wang finally gets to tape his Netflix special

...and at the London Palladium, too

Phil Wang is finally getting to record his first full-length Netflix special.

The comic had originally planned to tape his  Philly Philly Wang Wang show at The Old Vic in London in May last year, announcing the news just a couple of weeks before lockdown hit.

However, the recording has now finally been rescheduled for the London Palladium on June 12.

Announcing the news, Wang posted on social media : ‘Thank you for your patience… feeling good about this one.’

The British-Malaysian comic has today also confirmed the rescheduled autumn dates for the last leg of the Philly Philly Wang Wang tour, although most were already on sale.

Wang previously taped a 15-minute show for Netflix in 2018 as part of its series The Comedy Line-Up, which also featured Aisling Bea among others.
