Designer Gone Wild: MC Michael Hing

We’re catching up with each of the stars of our upcoming event Designers Gone Wild to find out what makes them tick as they get set for a night of cross-firing ideas and creative curveballs.

You’ve met all of our Design stars who’ll be going wild on the night — Lisa Gray, Tim Horton, Mick Alvisse, and Simone LeAmon — but who’s going to be running the show?

To keep things under control on the night, we’ve enlisted the expert assistance of comedian, radio host, writer, aspiring global taste maker and expert sandwich maker Michael Hing.

Check out the rest of the post below, and grab your tickets for Designers Gone Wild, showcased at this year’s Vivid Ideas.

Michael Hing was born in 1985 and grew up in the Sutherland Shire in Sydney’s South (a fact he’s very sorry about but he cannot change). Since that time, despite his family’s best efforts, he has become a stand up comedian, improviser and comedy writer. He is a regular performer and producer within the Sydney scene, as well as on the wider Australian comedy festival circuit, where his brand of intelligent, unapologetic comedy has carved out a dedicated fan base against all odds.

He has been invited to perform at the World’s Funniest Island, Homebake and Harvest festivals, and has performed to sold-out audiences at the Sydney Comedy Festival, Melbourne Comedy Festival and Sydney Fringe, where he also helped produce over 30 different shows by emerging comedians. When he’s not touring niche, elitist, comedy shows, Michael also runs and is a regular host at what has been described as Sydney’s Best Comedy Night, Project 52, which he co-founded in 2009.

He might not be good at life (his words), but apparently he’s good at sandwiches… and he’s going to be more than good as the MC of Designers Gone Wild!
