APRIL 12: Hometown Heroes at the Joke Factory

Farid Azmeir and Hindravel Chandrabose will be the double headliners this weekend. Relatively new to the scene, nonetheless these two performers skyrocketed in popularity and have steadily accrued a large following with their strong delivery and heart-stroking local references.

Hindravel Chandrabose’s imposing figure and authoritative stage presence belie his penchant for silliness and goofy storytelling. Able to work his craft in English, Malay, and Mandarin, he’s a force to be reckoned with in the Malaysian standup comedy scene.

 

 

Farid Azmeir is a face you may recognise from his various advertising gigs, but he is also well known in the local comedy scene for his physicality, quirky observations, and fast wit. Together, these two are guaranteed to bring the house down in the way only Malaysian comedy acts can!

One of Canada’s most outspoken and hilarious women is taking the comedy circuit by storm.  Dana Alexander's comedic style is both refreshing and irreverent, drawing her material from her diverse lifestyle, her gay friends and her crazy Jamaican family.

 

 

This is a lady not to be missed! Culture shock meets hilarity, straight up stand up from a fresh perspective. Dana talks about everything from family to sex to culture with a down-to-earth and world sensibility. Her unique ability to see the insanity on our every-day lives is what endears her to a wide variety of audiences all over the world. Original and from the gut.
