Taiwan born, Houston raised and SF Bay Area based, Sheng Wang performs comedy focused on personal experiences and insightful observations of the mundane with intense honesty and ill logic. His refreshingly affable stage presence combined with a healthy penchant for absurdity and self deprecation make his comedy universally hilarious. He is the recipient of last year's "Dan Crawford Scholarship" award from the SF Punchline and is currently on a national college tour sponsored by American Eagle Outfitters.
Nathan Macintosh is an award winning comedian from Halifax Nova Scotia, who has quickly risen to become one of the hottest young comics in the country.
Nathan has already piled up a number of accomplishments including, taping his own “Comedy Now!” special for the Comedy Network/CTV, performing at the prestigious 2010 Just For Laughs Festival Homegrown Competition where he placed runner-up, winning a 2009 "Canadian Comedy Award" for best newcomer also taped for The Comedy Network, been a semi-finalist in the Boston Comedy Festival, appearing at the Halifax Comedy Festival in 2009, taping an episode of CBC radio’s "The Debaters", winning the prestigious Tim Sims Encouragement Fund Award 2007, which was taped for the Comedy Network as "The Cream of Comedy", he has appeared on MuchMusic’s "Stars Gone Wild", a guest spot on XM Satellite Radio’s "Chomping at the Bit" and "Laugh Attack" and a small role in the critically acclaimed film "The Wait" which premiered at the 2006 Toronto International Film Festival. Most recently he was named one of the “Top Five Canadian Comedians being Observed” by the Comedy Network and one of five of the New Generation of Canadian Funny Men by Sharp Magazine.
He is also a favorite at comedy clubs right across the country, and is one of only five caucasian comedians to have headlined the “All Black Comedy Revue” that has been running for 16 years in Toronto.
Nathan has also turned his attention to writing, being a script editor on the Family Channel show “The Latest Buzz” which was nominated for a Gemini award.
Nathan has done all of this in a relatively short period of time since moving from Halifax to Toronto only 5 years ago.
