So there I was last weekend to catch the press conference for the upcoming biggest night of stand up comedy in Malaysia. Aptly given the title "Harith Iskandar, To Know Malaysia is to LAUGH MALAYSIA", the show is a tribute to all the fans of stand-up comedy in Malaysia for the past 23 years since it was first introduced to our shores by the great Harith Iskander.

The mega-show, To Know Malaysia is to LAUGH MALAYSIA in Stadium Bukit Jalil is also all about giving back to society and those in need. Proceeds will go to the OrphanCare Foundation, a non-profit organisation dedicated to the placement of unwanted babies and orphans with loving families. Have a rip-roaring time with Harith Iskander, Dr. Jason Leong and Papa CJ while doing your bit for charity.

Aiming to spread the “1Malaysia” spirit, the godfather of stand-up comedy in Malaysia, Harith Iskander, will be putting up his best performance on 29th October at Stadium Putra Bukit Jalil. Now I haven't really had the chance to go up and personal with Harith Iskandar save for a few brushes in the past, so it was nice being able to have a rather personal session amidst all the other bloggers at this event.

Dr Jason Leong was there too, and will be performing alongside Harith. A doctor by profession, it was interesting to note he now spends most of his time tickling funny bones instead as a stand-up comedian. Harith believed that Jason is one of the best comedians in Malaysia, he will be doing the opening for the night with his unique brand of satire and political incorrectness upon the unsuspecting public. There will be a special guest for the night too, Papa CJ – one of India’s most influential comedians.

Introducing new materials to the stage as well as some classic “best of” and with a mixture of interactive visuals and live music. Harith Iskandar, with more than 22 years of experience to his name, aims to bring a new and exciting edge to his performance. The topics will be a mixture of daily observations about what makes Malaysia ‘tick’ told in the indomitable and distinctive Harith Iskander style.

It was indeed a lively and interesting press conference, getting us hyped up even before the event which will happen this 29th October 2014 at Stadium Putra Bukit Jalil. Another note to add would be the fact that a percentage of profits from ticket sales will be channelled to OrphanCARE, a charitable NGO that strives to place abandoned children in homes with loving families. Now that's a nice effort indeed.
As a lead up to this concert Harith is presently on his first International Tour covering six countries – Singapore, Indonesia, India, Australia, Hong Kong and South Korea – aptly titled “The Godfather of Malaysian Comedy International Tour 2014”. In each of these countries Harith has successfully and proudly flown the Malaysian flag in front of a truly international audience.
