At this moment in comedy, very few voices are as unique as Sheng Wang. His measured cadence, calming ease on stage, and chill delivery are all extremely clever dressing for his perfectly written jokes. Wang has been one of comedy’s best artisans (with one of the most soothing voices to boot) for years now and has been well overdue for an hour special.
If you’ve gotten lucky enough to snag tickets to see Ali Wong recently, you might have seen Sheng open and know what we’re talking about. It’s great to see that Sheng will be one of the specials in Netflix’s comedy special pipeline coming up considering that the streaming giant has really saturated itself with so many specials from, perhaps, too many comedians that it’s harder and harder to stand out on the platform.
Thank goodness that Netflix has wised up and given him an hour special with his good friend Ali Wong attached to produce and direct. If you’re in or around the LA area on Jun. 12th, you be witness to this debut hour special from Sheng at either 6PM PT or 8PM PT. Pre-sale tickets go on sale tomorrow at 10AM PT w/code PEPPER and GA goes on sale at 5/22 at 10AM PT all at shengwangtime.com. So, you better set a reminder.
