The inaugural show in October 2010 was the first of its kind and a runaway success with sold out shows in the Plenary Hall, KLCC and Singapore Conference Hall. The second instalment of the show, Kings And Queen Of Comedy Asia 2 in November 2011, recorded an attendance record of 7,800 over four shows in KL and Singapore. The show was a full production with launch and closing gambit, multimedia integration, high-definition live feed, lights and sound extravaganza.
The event was a major hit with highly positive feedback from both the public and media. The comedians thoroughly entertained the crowd and surprisingly, people had different takes on who they found funniest on the night – with all 5 comedians receiving almost equal kudos for tickling their fancies.
This year, we are presenting 5 major comics – led by comedy superstar Ron Josol from Canada, funniest Iranian American you will have ever known, Max Amini and funny man Papa CJ from India.
