Kuan-wen Huang

Kuan-wen Huang is a comedian, writer and actor from Taiwan, with major breakthroughs on the UK circuit in the last few years. With a unique voice and his trademark quirky persona, Kuan-wen is an alumni of the Soho Theatre Young Company and performed for Comedy Central at the Edinburgh Fringe and recorded Comedy Central Live in 2022. Kuan-wen performed his debut solo show, ‘Ilha Formosa’, at the 2023 Edinburgh Fringe and was listed in The Guardian’s Top 10 Jokes of the Fringe.

Kuan-wen is an increasingly recognisable face amongst performers of East Asian heritages in the UK. For three 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. Kuan-wen is also a proud queer performer, having been featured in various pride events and 21 Soho’s LGBTQ+ History Month line up.
