Not to be confused with the identically named noodle shop in NY’s Chinatown, Sheng Wang is a Taiwanese stand-up who grew up in Houston and found early career inspiration from Def Comedy Jam commercials. Drawing from personal experiences, Wang crafts a unique brand of dry, slightly absurd observational comedy that’s earned him spots in Montreal’s Just for Laughs festival and on the second season of Comedy Central’s Live at Gotham.
