“I fell in love with Wetherspoons when I discovered ‘Steak Club’. I then took my parents and my dad loved it so much that he tried to steal a menu to show his friends!”

Stand-up comedian, writer and actor in films like ‘Spider-Man: Far From Home’, Evelyn Mok takes Jimi on a colourful journey through her mixed Chinese, Indian and Swedish heritage. She shares how comedy has provided a platform for her to navigate these complex layers of identity and share her unique perspective with audiences.

A self-confessed Anglophile, Evelyn reveals how she was shaped by her resilient grandmother who worked as a “backstreet dentist”, her beloved pilgrimages to IKEA, and the impact a certain hit US sitcom had on her own understanding of growing up as part of a minority culture.
