The Comedy Club Asia is proud to present the inaugural Singapore Comedy Fringe 2014. This four-day event
will feature a stellar line-up of some of the best regional and international comedic talents.
One of the highlights of the event is a 90-minute show by Hollywood legend Michael Winslow, of
Police Academy fame. The consummate performer will bring his truly unique talent for vocal mimicry and
comedic chops to the Singapore stage for the first time at the Singapore Comedy Fringe. Also taking the
stage at this ground-breaking event are some of the biggest names in standup comedy, including Harith
Iskander (MAL), Hung Le (AUS), Vir Das (IND), Butch Bradley (USA), Papa CJ (IND), Paul Ogata (USA),
Joanne Kam (MAL) plus rising stars from Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, India, Hong Kong and Philippines.
Jonathan Atherton, comedian and founder of The Comedy Club Asia, explains why the time is ripe for a
Singapore-styled comedy festival. He says, “In the 5 years since The Comedy Club Asia began promoting
shows in the region, we have witnessed a phenomenal growth in local audiences and talent. Asia boasts
many truly international names such as Harith Iskander, Papa CJ and Vir Das, but a new wave of
young talent is rising fast.”
The Singapore Fringe 2014 is a chance for audiences to discover the burgeoning comedic talents here in
Singapore and Asia. Atherton adds, “We want to celebrate the coming of age of Asian comedy by showcasing
regional and international stars alongside the best young comics from Shanghai to Mumbai and
everywhere in between…”
The first ever Singapore Comedy Fringe promises to be an amazing program of local and international comedy.

The Comedy Club Asia is proud to present comedian and ventriloquist Jeff Dunham.
Jeff is in Singapore as part of his Asia tour with friends Achmed, Peanut, Jose Jalapeno on a Stick,
Walter and many more.
His television specials and series have been the highest rated programming in Comedy Central history,
his DVD sales have reached seven million units, his videos have received a half a billion views on
You Tube, and his live concerts have become mega-events played in front of sold-out arenas worldwide.
No wonder Time Magazine wrote that he is “the most popular comedian in the United States” and Forbes
named him to its Celebrity 100 list of most powerful entertainers three years running. Jeff Dunham is a
phenomenally successful global entertainment brand.
Dunham has, of course, plenty of help on-stage: his entourage of signature characters who are there to
challenge and chastise his every sentence. They may have all been conceived and hand crafted by
Dunham, but his characters, who are anything but dummies, have now taken on a life of their own,
each with their own legion of fans.
