Quickfire interview with Ronny Chieng

How would you describe your style of comedy?

‘My style of comedy is probably absurdist, observational and Olympian.’

Who or what makes you laugh?

‘American comic Bill Burr makes me laugh a lot. Him and internet memes. Check that stuff out.’

What’s the most memorable heckle you’ve received?

‘While I was on stage someone once shouted, “Your answers  to the Time Out interview sucked!”’

What’s your most memorable gig, good or bad?

‘I once did a gig at an office Christmas party in the showroom floor of a friend’s father’s home appliance shop in the suburbs of Melbourne. It was to a much older crowd. Without a microphone. Or a stage. With the queue for the buffet behind me. The gig actually didn’t go so bad. I think everyone felt sorry for me. Great buffet, though.’
