Rex Navarrete

The Premier Filipino American comedian Rex Navarrete was in town last week and we manage to steal his precious time for an interview with us. Join us in our inaugural episode of Seriously Kam and you can also be treated to a video of Rex and the rest of the comics that performed on Fri & Sat at LOL Livehouse, Kuala Lumpur's premier comedy club. Prakash Daniel was the host and we were also treated to our very own Dr Jason's comedy routine and to bring it home ...Rex Navarrete. Tune in tomorrow as we talk to Rex on his comedy, live and everything in between. REX NAVARRETEMany claim that college is the turning point in one’s life, when one finds his or her future. This was the case for San Francisco Bay Area comedian Rex Navarrete, when Navarrete’s college professor told him he was wasting his talents.“He told me, ‘Get out of my office-we shouldn’t be joking here, you should be taking those jokes to the stage,” recalls Navarrete of his Asian American Studies professor Dan Gonzales, the teacher who encouraged his dream to be a comedian in 1989.That spring, 19 year-old Navarrete was baptised by fire, entertaining a crowd of 800 at the annual Asian Pacific Islander Student Union conference at UC Santa Cruz.“I was looking for my identity then just as everyone else was at that age,” says Navarrete. “Much of my material was very serious, it lacked comedy. I figured that I had some important stuff to say, so say it in the format of stand-up. This is where I started to take comedy as a vehicle seriously.”By the early 1990’s, Navarrete began seeing his routine evolve through the use of characters, many of whom were struggling underdogs. His portrayals, which ranged from his ESL teacher Mrs. Scott to his Uncle Boy and to Maritess the domestic worker, gave him the voice to air his thoughts on issues and speak about things that otherwise wouldn’t be mentioned.Navarrete gathers all of his material from what he calls “real Rex moments,” reality and shared life experiences. “I think everything has humor; you will always find humor. I don’t always make stuff up. Even though most of my material is geared for a Filipino audience, if you’re smart enough you’ll understand the universality of it. Look at the comedy traditions of Jewish and African American comics, which are now the mainstream througNavarrete remains to be a one of the hardest working, relatively unknown American comedians today though he’s performed alongside notable national headliners as George Lopez, DL Hughley, Paul Mooney, among others. He does plan to release a number of other comedy albums on CD and DVDs under his label for fans to enjoy.The future seems to only give him the chance to connect with a larger audience that is now finally getting the opportunity to experience the changing face of American stand-up comedy.h Seinfeld, Bruce, Allen, Rock, Pryor and Murphy. Our struggles become our comedy.”

The Trouble Makers of Comedy : Keren Bala Devan & Haikal Idris

KEREN BALA DEVANKeren Bala Devan is a stand up comedian who loves to share his unique views about everything wrong with modern culture.Usually by complaining.A lot.His specific brand of comedy stems from years of observing how ridiculous things that are part of everyday life have come to be. From strange modern cultural habits to the annoying behaviour of the general populace, he always find something to say and rant about. As part of the next generation of comics in Malaysia, his almost three year journey has lead to him headlining various venues around Kuala Lumpur and Petaling Jaya, opening for International comic Paul Ogata, and performing in shows with Harith Iskander as well as at the International Comedy FringeFestival in Singapore.He is now one of the new producers for One Mic Stand, Malaysia’s premiere comedy openmic venue and can be seen frequently performing there and at The Crackhouse Comedy Club in Kuala Lumpur.HAIKAL IDRIS  The 25-year-old is best known for his dark humour (or otherwise known as black comedy), a comic style that is often viewed as offensive or cruel to some as it makes light of themes that are generally considered taboo or sensitive.While the comedy scene is already used to Haikal’s shenanigans, Twitter wasn’t. He first joined the social media network in June 2016 and within a few weeks, his joke about Kelantan received so much backlash that he was invited on OhBulan and Astro Awani.Haikal isn’t just a stand-up comedian. By day, this Finance graduate is the head of Business Development and Investor Relations for ParkEasy, a Malaysian startup and smartphone application that helps you find parking quickly in shopping malls. After running a beta for several months, the application has now been officially launched and is available on both Apple App Store and Google Play Store.Last Tuesday, I had the pleasure of watching Haikal and other local comedians “live” during One Mic Stand at PJ Live Arts. The next day, I had a sit-down with Haikal and asked him about his journey into comedy and his opinion about the negative reaction he received after a week of curating @twt_malaysia..It all started three years ago when Haikal was hanging out with some comedian friends who encouraged him to take the stage. His first show was completely unstructured. He could have easily given up the first time, but when asked what motivated him to keep going, Haikal said that most comedians who are dedicated to the art form do so for the validation.“A lot of us are lonely and we’re usually introverts,” he says, “so comedy is an outlet for us to take out our frustrations. It’s nice knowing that you can make people laugh.”

Victor Anastacio From Philippine at the Crackhouse

Victor AnastaioOne of the top Philipino Comedians to watch out for and he will be coming to our shores namely CRACKHOUSE Comedy Club in Taman Tun this FRIDAY & SAT 24th & 25th March 2017.One way to describe Victor’s comedy is 100% original. It does not feel copied or rehashed or fabricated from some obscure internet meme or comic. Good comics are funny. The great ones are also funny, but they also show you something else: their actual point-of-view. Every topic he gets into feels like you are seeing it from a completely different perspective.Also, The way he seems to also weave self-deprecation into his jokes is a treat in of itself. The trick is to say enough so that the crowd is on your side and roots for you, but not too much that the crowd just ends up feeling sorry or sad for the comic. Victor walks that thin line masterfully, and you are always left wanting more. He is able to keep any audiences attention because he is unique and he writes good jokes.
