Stand-up comedian Phil Wang is aged 31 years old and hear- hear, likes to keep his life private. This includes talking about his current girlfriends or lack thereof. Unlike other stand-up artists who use their personal life in their sets, Phil likes to avoid talking about his personal affairs. He is very close-lipped about his dating life and avoids this question like the plague. This only seems to be true for his romances, though, because we know about his family. Phil has been sharing about his childhood, family, and experiences since his first set, but he never confirms his romantic affiliations. So, let’s see Who is Phil Wang’s Girlfriend?
The British-Malaysian is currently a host at ‘BudPod’. This podcast is brought to you by Phil and Footlights alumni Pierre Novellie. He likes to use his fame and platform to bring to attention the politics in the current world. One of the major topics he focuses on and attempts to contribute to is culture and movement-related. It is no surprise that we might know nothing of his current relationship status, but it doesn’t mean that we don’t know about the hardships he has faced in dating. Heading over to one of his stand-ups for Netflix, we got to know that he has faced his share of trial and error in the stages of dating.
When it comes to expressing his own life experiences on stage, he laces it with undeniably relatable humor but what is shocking is how you will relate to him even if you have never once experienced the thing he is talking about in life.
Philip “Phil” Nathaniel Sin Goi Wang is currently single and does not have a girlfriend, as far as we know. This news comes after snooping around all the available resources, here including his Twitter, Instagram, and all the dating websites. Now, he might be involved in some secret on the balcony type romance. But that information has eluded us. As mentioned earlier, Philip really likes to keep his dating stories under the wraps. This just leads to fans’ curiosity peaking and has the result of them playing Sherlock. It is rumored that he might be dating another comedian star, Fren Brady, because of their frequent appearances together. This might also not be true, but for the fans desperate to know more about their favorite comedian, we can cut them some slack.
Family and Education
Phil was born on 22nd January 1990 to a Chinese-Malaysian father and English mother. He has two sisters: Anne Wang and Aimee Wang. Though he was born in Stoke-on-Trent, England, he grew up in Malaysia. This was his father’s birthplace and the same country where his parents met in 1982. This move was just after a week of his birth when his archaeologist mother had volunteered with Overseas Voluntary Service. Phil also has roots in Assam, India, where his maternal grandfather was born. His mother spent half her childhood there since her father used to work there as a manager of tea plantations.
He moved to the United Kingdom with his family at the age of sixteen, where he went to Kingswood School. Deciding to pursue engineering (are we really surprised here?), he attended King’s College, Cambridge. He also acted as the president of Cambridge Footlights during his college years.
Philip was always interested in comedy. In 2010 he won the Chortle Student Comedian of the year Award. In 2011 he won the Comedy Central’s Funniest Student Award. This success gave him the push to perform gigs. Choosing television, radio, youtube, and fests as his medium, he came forward in his career.
He has performed at two of the world’s fests: Melbourne International Comedy Festival and Edinburgh Festival Fringe. Also, making an appearance at Comedy Up Late, About Tonight, Room 101, The Rob Brydon Show, and much more shows, Phil has made himself a sought out comedian. He also participated in the Roast Battle by Jimmy Carr and won against Ed Gamble. Adding to this list of achievements are his writings published in The Guardian.
Wangsplaining is another one of his achievements which is a stand-up comedy series airing on BBC Radio 4. It first aired on 19th May 2019.
Using Youtube to reach a more vast audience, he has posted two shows on his channel. In 2017 he got into podcasts. His first appearance was in Pappy’s Flatshare Slamdown and Do the Right Thing. This led him to make his own podcast in 2021 named “Phil Wang Hates Horror,” which you can hear on Audible. He also hosts another podcast named “Budpods”. God, does this boy work hard.
Phil also made an appearance on the popular platform Netflix Is A Joke in 2021. My favorite line from this has to be, “For religious reasons: god hates me”. He also is the author of the book Sidesplitter.
