Cambridge Mathematics drop-out and now professional poker player, Ken Cheng burst onto the UK comedy scene after reaching the final of the 2015 BBC Radio New Comedy Award.
His unique, analytical style made him instantly recognisable and, since then, Ken has filmed for BBC Three’s Top Tens and was selected for the BBC New Talent Hotlist in 2017. He recently had a four-part series commissioned for BBC Radio 4, which will air in Autumn 2018.
Ken brings his debut comedy show “Chinese Comedian” to Kilkenny, having performed at the Edinburgh Fringe last year to high acclaim. He was the 2017 winner of the hotly-contested ‘Funniest Joke of the Fringe’ award.
