The Comedy Club Asia is proud to present the Singapore Comedy Fringe 2015. This five-day event will feature a stellar line-up of some of the best regional and international comedic talents. It will take place from the 9th to 13th of June at the DBS Arts Centre.
Taking the stage at this ground-breaking event are some of the biggest International names in standup comedy, including Harith Iskander (MAL), Kumar (SIN), Vir Das (IND), Butch Bradley (USA), Peter Berner (ASU), Imran Yusuf (UK) plus rising stars from Singapore, Malaysia, India, Hong Kong and Philippines. The Singapore Comedy Fringe Festival promises to be lots of fun and lots of laughs.
The Singapore Comedy Fringe is jointly organized by The Comedy Club Asia– a home-grown company fostering comedy talent throughout the Asian region. The Comedy Club Asia has been organizing live stand up comedy shows since 2008. Their mix of international monthly shows, local open mic nights and international gala shows at the esplanade (e.g. Kings & Queen of Comedy Asia Series) has played to more than 100,000 people. The Comedy Club Asia has grown to organizing shows in Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Jakarta, Bali, Phnom Penh and Ho Chi Minh City. In 2012, The Comedy Club Asia was named “Best Comedy Club” in the National Critics’ Choice Awards.
The Singapore Comedy Fringe promises to be an amazing program of local and international comedy. Laugh is in the air! Jonathan Atherton, comedian and founder of The Comedy Club Asia, explains why the time is ripe for a Singapore-styled comedy festival. He says, “In the 7 years since The Comedy Club Asia began promoting shows in the region, we have witnessed a phenomenal growth in local audiences and talent. Asia boasts many truly international names such as Harith Iskander, Kumar and Vir Das, but a new wave of young talent is rising fast.”
The Singapore Fringe 2015 is a chance for audiences to discover the burgeoning comedic talents here in Singapore and Asia. Atherton adds, “We want to celebrate the coming of age of Asian comedy by showcasing regional and international stars alongside the best young comics from Shanghai to Mumbai and everywhere in between”
