Nigel Ng: A dream come true
On Instagram, Nigel Ng could not contain his excitement for his world tour, describing it as a “dream come true.”
This is such a dream come true. It was exactly what I wanted to achieve from the very first social media video I made.
“Who knew wearing an oversized orange polo, complaining about egg fried rice would one day lead to this 😂,” he said.
He also reminded the fans who watched his show in November that the same material will be used for his upcoming world tour in 2022.
Uncle Roger making global headlines
Nigel Ng was showered with compliments and became an Internet sensation after his comedic persona of Uncle Roger, a middle-aged man with heavy Asian accent reviewing Asian cuisines.
His trademark slangs such as “Haiya”, ‘Fuiyoh”, “Weejios” have also become a global trend.
Nigel has over 10 million fans across social media platforms. Furthermore, he has been nominated for the Best Newcomer Award as a stand-up comedian.
