Best known for his award-winning performance on the hit CBC show Kim’s Convenience, Andrew Phung is an actor, improvisor, and educator. He’s an energetic presenter and performer, quickly becoming a sought-after MC, having hosted events for The City of Calgary, Telus Spark, ATB Financial, and numerous non-profits. Phung brings an off-the-cuff comedic charm and boundless enthusiasm to any engagement.
Starting his path as a performer as a young volunteer at the Loose Moose Theatre Company in Calgary, Phung developed a love for the stage and saw it as the one place where he fit in and could be himself. Over a decade later he continues to be a part of the Theatre, both as a senior ensemble performer and instructor. Phung regularly presents to student groups on the subjects of improvisation, volunteering, and community involvement, and presented a TEDx Talk titled “The Obvious Secret to Engage Youth.” As part of his community involvement, he’s also the Director of Special Projects at the non-profit Youth Central.
Acclaimed for his many film, television, and stage roles, Phung has won several Canadian Screen Awards for his portrayal of the role Kimchee on the highly rated Kim’s Convenience, now on its fifth season.
