Event Description

Joe is a unique comedian who headlines live standup comedy shows and hosts TV programs in both English and Chinese. He is also developing new TV shows and movie projects in the US and in China. He was featured in the book First Generation: 36 Trailblazing Immigrants and Refugees Who Make America Great. 

Wong received his PhD in biochemistry from Rice University in Texas and went on to become a successful scientist at a major pharmaceutical company. In the evenings, however, Wong pursued his dream of comedy, taking classes and working on his routine in local clubs. Wong moved to Boston in 2001 and began to perform his comedy at All Asia Bar, at Stash's Comedy Jam. In 2009, he appeared on The Late Show with David Letterman, and has since performed regularly on major talk shows. In 2010 he headlined the Radio and TV Correspondents’ Dinner, in which he roasted then Vice President Joe Biden. Later that year, he placed first in the Third Annual Great American Comedy Festival. In 2013, he moved back to Beijing hosting television shows, such as Is it true? a Myth Busters like program, on China Central Television.
