Comedians from Singapore and Malaysia fight for laughs

This year's Beerfest Asia will feature a new comedy segment - the Singapore vs Malaysia Comedy Cup

Published on Jun 6, 2014 4:57 PM

Two Singaporean stand-up comics will have it out with two Malaysian counterparts at a beer festival next week.

Sounds like a recipe for drunken bilateral aggression? It is all in good fun, say the people behind the Singapore vs Malaysia Comedy Cup at this year's Beerfest Asia.

The comedy event is the first of its kind at the annual Beerfest at Marina Promenade, which runs from June 12 to 15.

Spread over the duration of the festival, the cross-Causeway humour bust-up is part of a sideshow by The Comedy Club Asia, and will feature Singapore comedians Fakkah Fuzz and Jinx Yeo battling it out with Malaysia's Kavin Jay and Rizal Van Geyzel.
