Last night I went for The Comedy Club KL’s January show at PJLA with Kevin, Mi Lin and Faizal. I wouldn’t have known that there’s a comedy club in KL if Joanne did not alert me to it. From what little I understand, it’s a stand-up gig held every 3rd week of the month, featuring 3 comedians (changes monthly).
I won’t talk much about it here else I may ruin the jokes as well as your evening (if you’re planning to watch it). As KY often laments, I have a tendency to do that. All I’ll say is that…
IT WAS DAMN FUNNY, I LAUGHED ALMOST NON-STOP AND YOU SHOULD GO WATCH IT!!!
For the January 2010 show, they have our own Joanne Kam Poh Poh, Rob Brown from Australia and Pierre Collins from UK. Each comedian brings their own local flavour to the show… different backgrounds and countries mah. But even if you were not born/ brought up in Malaysia/ Australia/ UK, you’ll still find it funny. Humour is universal mah :)
There are 2 shows left – today and tomorrow. Both are at Velvet Underground at Zouk KL. Tickets are RM60 each, you can purchase them on-line at their website or just try your luck at the door.
I would also like to pimp the MACC Chinese New Year Edition. A few of us went for their first run late last year, it was pretty good. This will be a more local flavour though, so you may need to be slightly in-tuned with what’s happening in the country.
The President, Vice-President, Treasurer, Secretary and Supreme Advisor of the Malaysian Association of Chinese Comedians (that’s how you get MACC ;) ) is funny man Douglas Lim. His cohorts are Chi Ho (whom I missed the first time round ‘cos he was down with chicken pox) and Kuah Jenhan. I saw Kuah Jenhan at a different comedy show and thought he was the best of the lot. Really talented with timing and delivery, keep your eye on this one!
Shows are on 27th – 31st January at 9pm at the PJ Live Arts @ Jaya One, with a 3pm show on the final day. Tickets cost RM28 for the first two days and RM38 for subsequent shows (excluding a RM2.20 ticket fee). Check out their website for more info on shows and tickets.
