MILTON NG is a Chinese-Canadian Filmmaker, Content Creator and Standup Comedian.
Milton first grew a love for stand-up comedy when he saw a lady selling mops at the Richmond night market in 2017. He volunteered to sell mops for free the following year and was gravitated by the audience that stopped to watch his sales pitch on mops, selling 10 mops! In 2019, he went to take Brett Martin’s YukYuk’s Stand-up class, being the most rewarding certification in life and has been doing stand-up since.
His film credits includes: Superhero web-series ‘THE FOLLOWERS’, winner of Best Directing/Best Comedy at Web Series Festival & Finalist at GeekFest Toronto. ‘TOWEL BOY’ winner of Best Action Comedy at Urban Action Showcase in New York; ‘NEXT LIKE’ was nominated for Best Canadian Short at Vancouver Asian Film Festival and screened at CAAMFest, Philadelphia, Boston, and Asians on Films Festivals. His short horror, “TUMBLE” was a finalist at Tokyo International Short Film Festival. Milton is also the founder of Dear Hero Studios, which produced “REVERSE”, which won the Los Angeles Film Awards, Best Shorts Competition, Indie Short Fest & official selection for Los Angeles Pacific Asian Film Festival.
Milton’s Tiktok/Youtube comedy videos have garnered over 10 million views combined. Milton and his team are currently developing their first action/horror feature, “NEW DIAMOND RESTAURANT”, which just earned a development grant from the Canada Council.

Lucas Ng asks great questions about how I balance filmmaking, stand-up and content creation.
