As the world transcends into a female empowered realm, women of today rise above to celebrate gender equality achievements that have long awaited deserving recognitions.True to this stance and in conjunction with International Women’s Month in March, Malaysia will see the coming together of Asia’s 4 biggest female comedians in a stand-up comedy showcase like never before! Putting the “POWER” in empowerment, Queens of Asia Comedy Special will see each of these ladies bringing their unique comedy stylings to Kuala Lumpur for a one-night only extravaganza of hilarity and debauchery!
Malaysia will open its curtains to the staging of the first-ever Queens of Asia Comedy Special on the 13th ofMarch 2020 at HGH Convention Centre, Sentul from 8.30pm onwards. Produced by Malaysia’s Queen of comedy herself, Joanne Joanne Kam Poh Poh, and presented by Deromp Marketing (M) Sdn Bhd, Queens of Asia Comedy Special will feature a line-up of all female comedians gracing the stage together for the very first time.
Promising to offer Malaysians a spectacular and hilarious night of female liberation and laughter, the show will feature acts from local legendary queen Joanne Kam, Japanese comedian and youtube sensation, Yumi Nagashima, Singapore’s finest Sharul Channa, and one of India’s no 1 female comic, Aditi Mittal - all of whom have proudly earned their names in their home grounds as well as in the international comedy arena. With their quirky and wicked sense of humour, it’s needless to say that Joanne, Sharul and Yumi also took part in Comedy Central Asia in Stand Up Asia on different occasions.
According to Joanne, “Comedy scenes not only in Malaysia but the world over remained male-dominated for the longest time. Male comics were the main features of comedy shows while female comics were restricted to add-on roles merely to fill in gaps. However, in the last few years, the comedy scene has witnessed a number of female comedians stealing the limelight and winning hearts all over the world. 2020is a year to celebrate women and their achievements and my aim is to do my part to amplify this through an empowering showcase of Asia’s top comedy queens performing on one stage for the first time ever, in conjunction with International Woman's Month.”
In the effort to make Queens of Asia a reality in Kuala Lumpur, Deromp Marketing (M) Sdn Bhd and support from local corporate sponsors namely, Aforadio, AirAsia BIG Loyalty, Avenue K, Sirocco Hospitality group, Cinema online, Vectorsideco tour & services, Shawn Cutler and Qtic solutions, have been instrumental in making the show a meaningful success. “The unwavering support from our presenter and sponsors towards the staging of Queens of Asia Comedy Special in Kuala Lumpur will go a long way in giving women and Malaysians in general an opportunity to enjoy a hilariously momentous milestone where women and comedy are recognized and celebrated together.
