In collaboration with comedy entertainment company LOL Events, Comedy Central Asia is launching its first Asian original stand-up series Comedy Central Stand-up, Asia! on Tuesday, 23 August at 9.55pm. It is an eight-part short series featuring an extended lineup of 24 popular Asian comedic acts, giving viewers a taste concerning various flavours of Asian stand-up.
Comedy Central Stand-up, Asia! will spotlight Asian comedy on a global scale. Be prepared for the most engaging and entertaining laughter fix from some of the best stand-up talents like Ron Josol (Canada), Vivek Mahbubani (Hong Kong), Mo Sidik (Indonesia), Douglas Lim (Malaysia), Atsuko Okatsuka (U.S.) and more.
Filming took place in front of a live audience at Southeast Asia’s largest comedy club LOL @ Live House, in partnership with Enrich by Malaysia Airlines, PARKROYAL Kuala Lumpur, Uber and Killer Gourmet Burgers in Malaysia. Stand-up comedy has certainly evolved and come a long way; we’re so stoked for the series!
