Hooray For Kualywood?

Hooray For Kualywood? post image

I’ve always said: “Be specific what you ask the Universe for.”

Well, I wanted to do a half-hour for Comedy Central, and the Universe granted my non-specific request… with a half-hour for Comedy Central in Asia.

No complaints. I’ll take it!

Seems like the Asia comedy market is on a meteoric rise right now. With so many clubs and festivals in the region, now the famous American television network has expanded east, too. Comedy Central Asia, in addition to airing shows from America, last year launched “Stand-Up Asia!” as its debut of regional programming.

“Stand-Up Asia!” followed the same format as Comedy Central’s other showcase shows, such as Premium Blend or Live at Gotham, featuring multiple comedians per episode. They’re doing that again in the upcoming second season, but they’re also giving me (and a few others) a solo episode.

Catch the madness, Thursday, July 13, and Friday, July 14, at the HGH Convention Center in Kuala Lumpur. Tapings begin at 8pm each night. GET YOUR TICKETS BY CLICKING HERE!

Best of all, I get to do this with a bunch of my very talented friends! Come on both nights as the line-ups are different each night. (I’m on the Thursday taping.)

Vague goal-setting be damned! This and another (secret, shhhh) project I shot across Malaysia earlier this year make me reconsider things. Forget Hollywood or Bollywood… I say Hooray For (let me invent a term) KUALYWOOD!
