IT’S com­edy sea­son once again in Kuala Lumpur, and The Com­edy Club KL is back with an­other side-split­ting round of standup com­edy in­clud­ing acts from Bri­tain. You’ve only got three days to catch them, so keep your­selves free from Nov 18 to 20 as Eddy Brim­son, Dougie Dun­lop, Ja­son Leong and host Steve North­cott de­scend on the lo­cal stage.

Fol­low­ing the suc­cess of The Com­edy Club Sea­son I and The Kings And Queen Of Com­edy, the or­gan­is­ers LOL Events have wasted no time in fly­ing in more comedic acts for your en­ter­tain­ment.

Brim­son is one of the most in-de­mand head­line acts from Bri­tain. He was a well­known TV pre­sen­ter even be­fore ven­tur­ing into com­edy; he con­tin­ues to host such shows as I Pre­dict A Riot, The Con­fes­sions Of Se­ries and 100 Worst Sin­gles.

Brim­son is a sports writer who has writ­ten seven best-sell­ing sports books and an ex­posé about trav­el­ling English foot­ball fans in Tear­gas And Tantrums.

Scots­man Dun­lop hails from Ed­in­burgh and is de­scribed as a “highly tal­ented ob­ser­va­tional comic”. He has per­formed at ma­jor com­edy venues in Bri­tain and trav­elled in­ter­na­tion­ally. His ap­peal lies in his re­laxed style.

Dun­lop made his fringe de­but in 2000 as part of The Mid­night Show In The Gilded Bal­loon. In 2003, he head­lined the pres­ti­gious Big Value com­edy pack­age show at Ed­in­burgh’s Café Royal. Be­sides do­ing standup com­edy, Dun­lop also writes and acts.

Lo­cal boy Leong is the new kid on the block who will be join­ing the crew in de­liv­er­ing the laughs.

He is all set to bring “ex­plo­sive medi­ocrity and in­ci­sively in­signif­i­cant so­cial com­men­tary to the fore”. His com­edy is based on the strat­egy of “show up and see what hap­pens”.

Cana­dian North­cott, who will be your host for the show, has a “charm­ing stage pres­ence, crack­ling wit, and sooth­ing mu­si­cal hooks”. Yes, North­cott is also a mu­si­cian as he is the singer and gui­tarist for the band The Bench­marx.

So, if you’re dy­ing for live stand-up com­edy, don’t miss The Com­edy Club Sea­son II on Nov 18 and 19 at Vel­vet Un­der­ground, Zouk KL, from 8.30pm to 11pm. Tick­ets are priced at RM60.

The Com­edy Club KL will also be per­form­ing at Bent­ley Mu­sic Au­di­to­rium. Petaling Jaya, Se­lan­gor, on Nov 20 and tick­ets are priced at RM60 and RM45. Tick­ets can be pur­chased at www.tick­et­pro.com.my. Visit www.the­com­e­dy­clubkl.com for more in­for­ma­tion. –
