How much do you love your homeland? Do you love it enough so that, as a queer boy, you’d endure the dehumanising military service before running away?

In his debut hour, Leicester Comedy Festival Best Show nominee Kuan-wen recounts how he traded his beloved island for the rainy British isles, what it means to be Taiwanese and what it symbolises through generations of migrations.  As seen and heard on BBC Radio 4, BBC Three and Comedy Central.

Directed by Dec Munro

Award nominations:

Nominee, Leicester Comedy Festival Best Show 2023

Nominee, The inaugural Channel 4 Sean Lock Comedy Award 2023

Winner, Prague Fringe Brian’s Life Award 2023


“’s not often you get global politics, teddy bears, massive orgies and mummy issues in the same show. And it works, due to our host’s sheer effervescence.”

“He blares exuberance at you, instantly over-familiar with members of the audience and cutting through any reluctance for his punchlines with a fit of gregariousness.”

“In this debut hour, Ilha Formosa, his likeable bluster is given weight by centring on the complex relationship he has with his home country and its tense political struggles with China.”

“There’s real depth to the well-researched material”

“The comic has an incredible database of international relations up his sleeve. It made the digs pack a punch.”

“ is thoroughly entertaining to hear his hot take on the oddities of British culture. It is entertainment in itself to watch how well Kuan-wen pulls off taking the piss out of a new culture every two minutes of his show.  He treads the line and never seems to fall off.”

“Over the course of an hour, Kuan-wen harnessed his incredible capacity for deadpan wit, detailed knowledge of geopolitical events, his own unique experience and extreme love of teddy bears.”
