Home / Fringe & Festivals / Latitude Festival / LATITUDE LOWDOWN: Phil Wang


How would you describe your set in one sentence?

Nerdy but sexy.

Is this your first visit to the Latitude Festival, if so what interesting tales have you been told about what to expect?

I’ve been before but never stayed overnight which I will this year. Haven’t heard any mad stories. Sounds like a rather nice festival.

How do festival audiences compare to other comedy audiences?

Depends on the festival. In general festival audiences are harder to hold on to as there’s so much other stuff to see. You have to be on top of your game to keep them interested.

How important is it for festivals such as Latitude to have comedy programming alongside the music acts?

Very important. Otherwise how would I get a ticket?

How have you been preparing for festival life?

I’ve stopped showering already.

What do you think sets your show apart from all the other Latitude offerings?

Well I’m hosting the Chortle Student Comedian of the Year Show. It is in that sense utterly unique.

What’s the one act that you don’t want to miss at this year’s Latitude (apart from your own!)?

Seasick Steve.

Wellies or fancy footwear for the festival?


Are you camping at Latitude and if so what’s your one top camping tip?

Yes I am. My one top camping trip is to try your very best to avoid camping.

Latitude is famous for its multi-coloured sheep – if your show was an animal what type of animal would it be?

A big grizzly bear made out of loads of student comedians.

Phil Wang will be appearing in the Comedy Tent at Latitude
