Comedian Profiles
Papi Zak
Papi Zak is definitely the “biggest” stand up comedian in Malaysia. Born in Egypt and raised many different countries, he is the true definition of a third culture child. He is a gut-grabbing performer who has no qualms about opening his mouth and letting all manner of things fly out. It’s all these things that make Papi Zak one of the hottest comedians around.

Kavin Jay
Kavin, one of Malaysia’s most underrated comics, is a rapid-fire grumpy joke telling machine. He may be grouchy but does it with such panache, you can’t help but laugh. He is an integral  part of the comedy revolution in Malaysia and a regular host and performer for TimeOut KL’s Comedy Thursday.

Jonathan Atherton
Jonathan, an actor, comedian, traveler and raconteur, is no newcomer to the entertainment industry. As a teenager, he pursued an acting career. He made his debut in The Mango Tree and then went on to play television and theatre roles.

Gajen Nad
Gajen, also known as “Malaysia’s First Chindian Comedian” is no stranger to the limelight, appearing in Monash University student magazine Monga, getting interviewed by Capital FM, and even having NTV 7 film a documentary about his career as a stand-up comedian.
