Watching Comedy Central with friends is one of the best ways to spend our free time, especially when Russell Peters appears on the screen. Everyone — and we mean everyone — knows his comedy routine by heart, including his (dad’s) famous quote, “Somebody’s gonna get a hurt real bad.”
Fortunately, if you really want a good laugh, Comedy Central is returning to Malaysia with a brand new season of Comedy Central Stand Up, Asia!, featuring 16 Asian comedians from around the region who will celebrate Asian sensibilities.. or lack thereof.
The best of Asian stand-up comics are out in full force and they are more than ready to take over. Pulling no punches, Comedy Central Stand Up Asia will be filmed in front of a live audience at HGH Convention Centre, Kuala Lumpur on 13 and 14 July 2017. Meanwhile, the show will be aired as a 10 episode series on Comedy Central, scheduled to premiere on 22 Aug 2017.
Talents include Imran Yusuf (UK), Paul Ogata (US/Japan), Elliot Chang (US), Papa CJ (India), Garron Chiu (Hong Kong), Alex Calleja (Philippines), Dilruk Jayashina (Sri Lanka/Aus), Sharul Chana (SG) as well as Malaysia’s very own doctor-turned-comedian Jason Leong.
