Phil Wang: Wangsplaining
The UK is more divided than ever, and no one seems able to agree on anything.
What’s needed is a little outside perspective. Enter: Phil Wang – a caustic British-Malaysian comedian who grew up on the island of Borneo. A centrist with a heart; an artist with an engineering degree.
In this pilot episode, Phil turns his attention to the British Empire - was British colonialism really one big crime? Modern liberalism would say so, but Phil’s Dad sure misses those prompt British buses.
Written by and starring Phil Wang
Original music by Fauxe
Produced by Matt Stronge
Wangsplaining is a BBC Studios production.
