His comedy chops in both stand-up and improv have also led him to numerous overseas performances, entertaining audiences in Melbourne, Taiwan, Malaysia, Tokyo, Hong Kong, Macau, Myanmar and the Philippines.
Justin Heyes – United Kingdom
Justin Heyes is arguably one of the UK’s most lovable comedy exports. A storyteller at heart, his honest reflections of his own experiences never fail to entertain a diverse array of audiences.
A crowd favourite, Justin has headlined numerous shows across Kuala Lumpur, been a part of the ‘LOLFest’, ‘Crackhouse Carnival’, and ‘Singapore Fringe Festival’, all while branching out to entertain audiences in Penang, Johor Bahru, Singapore, Cambodia, the Philippines, Indonesia, Thailand, Vietnam, Myanmar, Australia and the UK.
He has appeared on Malaysian television in the film ‘Cinta Di Gerai’, and sitcom ‘Cakap Melayulah’, and was the first English comic to perform stand up in Bahasa Melayu on Malaysian television when he appeared twice on ‘Komediri’.
He has subsequently appeared on Malaysian television on ‘Komediri 2’, ‘Komediri English’, and ‘Sembang Teh Tarik’, as well as Malaysia’s first online stand up comedy series, as one of the faces of the iFlix original ‘Oi! Jaga Mulut’.
In his time on stage, Justin has opened for international stars such as Marcel Lucont, Butch Bradley, Dana Alexander, Brendon Burns, Paul Ogata, Glenn Wool, Imran Yusuf, John Robertson, Tom Rhodes, Ed Byrne, Dara O Briain and Gina Yashere.
Deepak Chandran – India
Deepak Chandran's rise in the world of stand-up comedy has been nothing short of spectacular. He was a finalist at the Hong Kong Comedy Festival, and a runner up at the Bangkok Comedy Festival. A regular headliner now across South & South East Asia, as well as being an established host at Comedy Masala Singapore, Deepak’s comedy is mostly observations of his life across the globe. Catch Deepak cracking jokes on imbalances of power, race, politics and of course being an IT engineer!
Daniel McGrath - America
Daniel McGrath is an American stand up comedian currently based in Singapore. A world traveller, Dan uses his jokes to paint a picture of his world, inviting you to laugh at him. He has opened for comics like Bert Kreischer, Ahmed Ahmed and Butch Bradley. Winning the 2016 Magners International New Act Competition, his comedy has been accused of being charming and witty, but mainly by his lovely wife.
Luwita Hana Randhawa – Malaysia
Ever since bagging the Best Female Youth Newcomer Award at the 2012 Short+Sweet Malaysia Stand Up Comedy Festival, Luwita has made a name for herself in the local comedy scene for her acerbic and understated wit. She is a regular performer at comedy shows throughout KL.
She has also performed in Singapore, Cambodia, Hong Kong, London and New York and performed her first solo show, Nothing to be Done, at the 2014 New Zealand Fringe Festival. Luwita was included in the CLEO HotShots 2016 list, a sign of more things to come for this up and coming comic.
Dan Tackage – Australia
Dan Tackage has performed in Singapore, Japan, the Philippines, Thailand, Vietnam and Australia. He has also performed at the Crackhouse Comedy Festival and LOLFest in Malaysia.
Despite having a fear of flying, only being able to speak English (barely) and being incredibly introverted, Dan's work forces him to mingle with all kinds of people from South East Asia, even those annoying expats. This frequent travel leads to a steady number of misadventures which Dan shares with his audiences, although he sees it more as therapy.
Zainal Bostaman - Brunei
Since first taking to the stage in Singapore 4 years ago, Zainal has performed in Malaysia - headlining at the Crackhouse Comedy Club, Indonesia, Brunei, the United States (LA and NY) and the UK (London). He now runs the BruHaHa Comedy Club in Brunei where he is ranked as one of the best comics in the country! Well at least top 3! There's only 3 comics, total...
