The Godfather of Malaysian Stand-up Comedy Harith Iskander Sets on an International Tour Spreading Laughter Around The World
8 Jul 2014
Kuala Lumpur, 30 June 2014: No introduction is needed for Malaysia’s beloved funny man, Harith Iskander, who has conquered the comedy scene in Malaysia for the past 23 years (and that’s a long time) with his unique rib-tickling and belly-laughing stage humour centering on our local landscape. On a mission to spread more laughter around the world (God knows we need it!) and in response to popular demand by his growing fans globally, “The Godfather of Malaysian Stand-up Comedy” sets on his first ever International Tour 2014 to further promote and raise the prominence of Malaysian comedy on an international level.
The tour first saw Harith’s stand-up comedy in Singapore on June 18thcausing infectious laughter and hysterics which will soon spread to Jakarta (3rd & 4th July), New Delhi (July 26th & 27th), Perth (14thAugust), Hong Kong (22th & 23rd August) and finally hit Seoul (27th September). Malaysian stand-up comedy fans who can’t get enough of Harith’s humour and planning a holiday can now catch him in his latest acts of hilarity at these exciting cities…but be warned! His contagious comedy can leave you in stiches for some time.
In the early years, through his innate talent of producing and performing humour based on everyday Malaysian way of life, Harith was the first to successfully pioneer and introduce local style stand-up comedy that Malaysians from all walks of life have become fond of. Today, acknowledged as Malaysia’s premier stand-up comedian and the nation’s darling of comedy scene, Harith has performed ‘live’ at countless events and entertained thousands of Malaysians and foreigners with his unique and original comedy productions. His comedy performance is in great demand and any company function is never complete without Harith inevitably bringing the house down with his side-splitting performances.
In recent years, Harith has grown from Malaysia’s adored comedian to a world recognized humour pundit with invitations that has poured in from around the world to perform individually as well as alongside other popular comedians at major cities such as Dubai, Melbourne, Brisbane, Sydney, Hong Kong, Singapore, Jakarta and New Delhi to name a few. He recently took part in the Singapore Comedy Fringe Festival in April this year and in Jakarta’s Comedy Festival in 2012 where only the best regional and international comedic talents are invited to perform.
Apart from being the country’s No.1 comedian, the multi-talented Harith is also an accomplished award winning film director, actor, writer, corporate trainer and host. With a reputation that precedes him, it is no wonder that Harith was recently listed as the TOP 10 comedian in Asia by “Top 10 of Asia”, a research based magazine which features, acknowledges and celebrates the excellence of Asian corporations, business people, personalities and bodies.
If there’s one message Harith Iskander intends to send out to the world during his International Tour 2014 is that Malaysians have a great sense of humour. Staying true to his reputation as one of our national treasures, Harith is on his journey of setting the stage for a comedy the world cannot refuse – Malaysian style!
