Attention family, friends and fans of comedy! Join Act II Playhouse Comedy Producer and Workshop Facilitator, Mike Donovan as he presents the graduation performances of students from our Stand-up Comedy Workshop Series, with a bonus set from Headliner, Bill Chiang!
An immigrant with a traditional Asian background, stand-up comedy is probably the last thing people would have predicted for Bill. In fact, even he doesn’t believe it. Out of curiosity, he tried one night in 2005 and since then, he has quickly become a regular in clubs across the East Coast.
Bill’s source for comedy comes from the absurdity and silliness of everyday life. His unique views on relationships, TV and stories about growing up as an Asian immigrant in NYC makes him a favorite in clubs and for benefits.
Bill is a comedy competition winner in NYC, has been featured on Comcast On-Demand and has played in historic comedy venues such as the New York Comedy Club, the Comic Strip, Catch a Rising Star and the Comedy Cabaret in Philadelphia.
