Where you pay to get insulted

On Wednesday, I went again to what is known as The Comedy Club, Kuala Lumpur, which by now has been quite well-known thanks to their first 2-days gig last month, which post you can read here in my other blog, As Good As It Gets titled Comedy Club KL : A Report. A serious title for a funny matter right? This time it was at a small theater called PJ Live Arts and is done to spread some breast cancer awareness. There are one more nights, after tonight which was tomorrow night, which is a Friday (21st August) and they will be at Zouk, Kuala Lumpur. Check their website here.

I have always believe all comedians are serious people, except for a few. They are social commentators who are in your face, telling you that something you have just witness or know about is actually funny, but...



The gig that I went to yesterday, reaffirmed my belief. They are serious and they are even willing to go into a fight with you, there and then, to prove a point. My advice is not to sit close to the front if you know what is good for you. This warning was given in that first gig by the moderator, Jonathon Atherton, who is funny but will pick on you like a bully in a playground. Yeah, you can laugh, but...

Then, what will comedy be without making fun of people right. Why not make fun of the people in the audience? Why must all the famous people are poked fun at. YOU too should be put under the limelight. Some warnings which you should know is that you may be labelled as a hooker and a few other derogative words which you can think of. All races will be make fun off from the Nigerian to the Muslims to the black people and even the white people. Paul Chowdry (the headliner) does a wicked impersonation of a few people and even characters from movies. All are for fun, but...


You can check the August line-up at the Comedy Club Kuala Lumpur official website, but if you think you want to take your first date there, do not say I didn't warn you. And for the sake of our country, do not fight back, either with your own comeback or with your fist. Believe me, you would want to at some point, but....

The moderator who is just as funny by the name The Real T.J. (forewarned of Obama jokes)


Malaysian flavour brought to you by a young 22 year old Kuah Jenhan, from the same outfit of Andrew Netto known as Young Comedian of Malaysia (YCOM)


This Australian guy is called Garry Who 
and he prepares you for the assault that will come with the next comedian

You cannot label him as unoriginal but you must have strong stomach 
or an open mind, this Paul Chowdry

Seems very nice. Hopefully I'll be able to catch the performance next month (hopefully it's after Raya)

I would never sit up front. And comedians do this stuff every night, so it is useless to try to match wits with them. One thing though. Where I live, the place where you go to get insulted is the supermarket. Just kidding.

Jimi - They only have the next show in October. So plenty of time

Ratty - I think American audience will be wiser than us. Stand-up is a new thing here
