So, what happens when Malaysia joins forces with Singapore to tickle your funny bone? You die of laughter, of course!
“Laugh Die You”, a direct translation of a Cantonese phrase, “siu sei lei”, which quite simply means “to laugh until you die”, is expecting at least 4,000 Malaysians to fill its venue, come 14th and 15th May.
The first of its kind in Malaysia, “Laugh Die You” will bring the best of comedy from Malaysia and Singapore on one stage, featuring the ever so funny, our very own Malaysian stand-up comedian, Douglas Lim take on Singapore’s uber funny, motormouth queen, Kumar, at the HGH Convention Centre, Kuala Lumpur.
A show like no other, this highly anticipated comedy show will be hosted by the very hilarious Mr. Phua Chu Kang himself, Gurmit Singh. “It is going to be a fantastic comedy show. It will showcase a distinctive take on Malaysian vs. Singaporean comedy. Be prepared as well to be entertained by the best in Singapore, JB and some even say Batam”, said Gurmit Singh.
At the “Laugh Die You” press conference on Wednesday (18th March), Popcorn Studio’s MD Erik Ong said, “This event is one of a kind that would bring stand up comedy to the next level. Laugh Die You will surely bring Malaysian, Singaporean rivalry to new heights.”
This 2-and-a-half hours comedy show will also feature home-grown stand-up comedian, Rizal van Geyzel. And that’s not all!
On top of that, as a post-event entertainment to this show, audience can be expected to be entertained by Malaysian rock band, Hydra.
