“Taiwanese Force of Nature”Chortle
Kuan-wen Huang is an emerging comedian, writer and actor from Taiwan, with major breakthroughs on the UK circuit in the last two years. With a unique voice and his trademark quirky persona, Kuan-wen is an alumni of the Soho Theatre Young Company and recently performed for Comedy Central at the Edinburgh Fringe.
He is due to perform as part of AAA Stand-up at Edinburgh Fringe in 2021.
Kuan-wen is an increasingly recognisable face amongst performers of East Asian heritages in the UK, just as East Asians as a group gain more awareness and campaign for greater exposure and fairer representation in the entertainment industry. For two years in a row, Kuan-wen performed as part of Yellow Xmas comedy show, which “showcases the top East Asian Stand-ups”, sharing the bill with Phil Wang, Evelyn Mok, Nigel NG, Ken Cheng and Yurijo Kotani.
A seasoned comedy show compere, Kuan-wen hosts the Saturday Night show at The Secret Comedy Club in Brighton monthly and runs his popular comedy night Comedy Gobbledygook in Bermondsey, London since 2017. He has since been invited to start a new comedy night Comedy at the Draft House Farringdon (until the lockdown was introduced). Kuan-wen is currently writing his first solo hour.
