The best of Asian stand-up comedy is returning with a vengeance.
Comedy Central’s original series, Comedy Central Stand-up, Asia
is back in full force to offer a second dose of unadulterated Asian humour.
Premiering in August, Season 2 of the show will feature 16 standout Asian voices in comedy from the region as well as the US and UK, including Paul Ogata
, Imran Yusuf
, Papa CJ
, Alex Calleja
, Sharul Channa
, Dr Jason Leong
, and many more!
And the best part of the show is that it will be recorded in front of a live audience right here in KL! The comedians will get seven minutes on stage each to entertain the crowd, three of whom are Malaysians – Dr Jason Leong, Keren Bala Devan and Shamaine Othman.
So if you want to be part of the audience for one or two laughter-filled nights, the show will be held at HGH Convention Centre on 13 and 14 July.
You can also check out the full line-up of comics on both nights on the Comedy Central Asia website
and purchase your tickets here
. Tickets are priced at RM50, RM100, RM150 and RM250.
LOL Events CEO Rizal Kamal believes that Asian stand-up comedy is currently at its prime in terms of both the comedy acts and quality of material.
The show also aims to bring a change in perception and break all stereotypes surrounding the comedy scene.
