The Humor Section Hosts Taiwanese/Texan Comedian Sheng Wang
For the first time, The Humor Section is hosting a Monday night stand-up comedy show (normally it’s a Friday night). Get your week off to a laughing start with this upcoming stand-up comedy show at The Bookworm from 8PM-10PM.
Created and organized by Irish-American Comedian Des Bishop, this month’s headliner is Taiwanese/Texan Comedian Sheng Wang.
“It’s time to cure the Monday Blues! Which is really a way for me to try and make a Monday show sound fun. But we have a rare chance to host a serious up and coming Comedian over from the U.S. and this is the only day we could get him. We did not want to miss out on the chance to have Sheng Wang at the Humor Section. So on Monday the 22nd we are anticipating a real cracker. I mean come on a Taiwanese/Texan Stand Up in Beijing seems a real recipe for unique stand up. Talking about a clash of ideals! I personally can’t wait.” - Des Bishop, MC and Creator of The Bookworm’s Humour Section
“Sheng Wang’s refreshingly affable stage presence combined with a healthy penchant for absurdity and self-deprecation make his act hilarious and universally accessible.”
From the San Francisco Bay Area, Sheng Wang is known for his jokes “based on personal experiences and observations and addresses common non-sense with honesty and ill logic”.

Sheng Wang has toured with the Comedians of Comedy and has also appeared on Comedy Central’s ‘Live at Gotham’ and attended the ‘Just for Laughs’ comedy festival in Montreal. In 2011, Wang hosted a half hour special on Comedy Central and was then awarded a holding deal with NBC. Wang’s set on the John Oliver NY Stand Up Show aired in August of 2012 and his more recent TV appearances include Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell and Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.
