Wonho Chung's Big Arabic Stand up show in NYC!
Wonho Chung - one of the Middle East's best known and beloved comedians - performs one night only in NYC.  **The show is in Arabic**

Wonho Chung is a critically acclaimed stand-up comedian, singer, musician, interviewer and media personality. Born to South Korean and Vietnamese parents, Wonho was raised in Jordan speaking Arabic as his mother tongue. His fluency in the language of the region and immersion in its culture from childhood have given this multi-talented entertainer a unique Asian-Arab perspective, enabling him to make a strong connection with audiences in this part of the world.

Wonho's comedy career began in 2007, when Showtime Arabia approached him to join the Axis of Evil comedy tour as the North Korean character they were looking for. Wonho toured with the revue for a month, performing 27 shows in front of 20,000 people in Jordan, Egypt, Kuwait, Lebanon and Dubai. His subsequent first television appearance came in Show Comedy's follow-up mini-series to this tour, titled Three guys and Wonho, which won a golden trophy at the 2008 Promax BDA awards ceremony held in Dubai.

As a celebrity interviewer, Wonho has put questions to the cast of some of the most popular television series, such as Desperate Housewives, Grey's Anatomy and Ugly Betty. He has also has been on the other side of the interview microphone himself, with his meteoric rise to media prominence and status as the first Asian Arabic stand-up comedian leading to interviews with CNN, Al Jazeera, NPR, MBC, Al Arabiyya, Future TV, Rotana, Al Hurra TV and LBC, as well as many radio shows, magazines and newspapers.

Wonho has performed stand up across the world and now brings his one of kind Arabic stand up comedy show to NYC!
