EDINBURGH PREVIEWS: Thünderbards & Phil Wang
Critically-acclaimed sketch duo Thünderbards return with their 4nd hour of gag-laden comedy, filled with their trademark off-beat jokes, fast-paced sketches and overwhelming politeness. With a potent combination of heartfelt absurdity, high-concept silliness and sweat-drenched toil, Thünderbards will stop at nothing to make your day great again.

Phil Wang: Kinabalu
Phil Wang is rapidly making a name for himself both in the UK and internationally with clever lines and a trademark laid-back style. As well as a hugely successful run at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2014, he also performed at the Montreal Just for Laughs Festival that year, as well as at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival in 2015.
Phils’s wry outlook and laid-back style have seen him perform on Funniest Moments of 2014 (Channel 4), The Rob Brydon Show (BBC2), Three at the Fringe (BBC3) and on BBC Radio 4’s Fresh From the Fringe and Best Behaviour, and the Comedy Live Lounge (BBC Radio 1). In 2010, the former President of the Cambridge Footlights won the Chortle Student Comedian of the Year Award and in 2011 Phil was awarded Comedy Central’s Funniest Student Award.
Don’t miss the chance to see Phil try out new material for his next Edinburgh Fringe show.
