Starring: Dr Jason Leong, Phoon Chi Ho, Kuah Jenhan and the KING OF MALAYSIAN COMEDY, DOUGLAS LIM.

Having completed his largest international solo tour to date, hitting sold out shows in Adelaide, Perth, Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne, Dr Jason Leong has earned many accolades, proudest of which being the first Malaysian to win the 7th International Hong Kong Comedy Competition and gained 20 million views on his viral clip on Whatsapp group culture.

“Manages to transcend the typical Malaysian tropes, while still never losing the provenance of where his humor took root.” ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Coconuts KL

“It is easy to see why Leong is such a hit with Malaysian audiences — at the heart of it all, he is a gifted storyteller.” ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ The Malay Mail

Dubbed the Cerebral Assassin, Chi Ho’s brand of non-sequiturs, puns, absurdist humour and dark comedy has flipped the expectations of what a Malaysian stand-up comedian can be. A prolific actor,producer and director, Chi Ho is a name to watch, as he makes his Australian debut.
