PJ Live Arts, Goodtimes Ticketing and The Square by Jaya One are set to launch ‘Late Night Laughs’ over the coming 12 months with over 12 outstanding comics in the local comedy scene as well as from around the world.
Recognizing comics as craftspeople, the campaign aims to bring to light comedians and comedy as a form of artistic expression with beneficial effects to the wider community.
Taking place in PJ Live Arts Theatre – in the heart of Petaling Jaya’s commercial hub – the multi-layered campaign promises all-inclusive, family-friendly programming with hopes to focus and celebrate creative crafts in the realm of comedy. Patrons can expect fine-tooled hilarity converged with creative interaction between the comics and the audience throughout the shows, reflecting PJ Live Arts’ reputation in producing quality productions.
“There are so many independent young creatives whose astounding achievements are relatively still unknown amongst the larger community. From places like Sabah to South India, the bottom-up movement of stand-up becomes a great entertainment channel that has enabled communities to relieve stress. Looking at the current issues surrounding us, we could all use a bit of a laugh to activate happy feelings. This promotes the advancement of stand-up and encourages the entertainment landscape to mature as a whole. ‘Late Night Laughs’ is a much-needed platform for the community in the Klang Valley to not just enjoy a night of laughter, but also discover how great comedy can make them feel better about themselves,” said Charles Wong, Executive Director of Tetap Tiara Sdn Bhd, developer of Jaya One.
The first ‘Late Night Laughs’ show is set to premiere on 14 March 2020 (Saturday), 8 pm - 9.30 pm named Phoon Chi Ho is Creepy Again by Malaysia’s veteran stand-up comic Phoon Chi Ho. After the success of his first-ever solo tour Creepy, Chi Ho will continue to serve the audience with a compilation of his favourite as well as his most recent stories.
