What happens when you bring together four sassiest, enormously talented, most outspoken, larger than life, spicy, adorable and wackiest female comedians on one stage? It’s a full power “Pompuan” night of female empowerment.
This March 2023, the Goddesses of Asia are marching in with style, confidence and mega laughs bringing in massive energy to celebrate the true essence of female empowerment and artistic emancipation. It’s time to make a stand, raise the flag and sound in the hoorays for female comedians shining the spotlight on themselves and on their peers with `QUEENS OF ASIA.’Presented by LOL ASIA and Kam Productions, `Queens of Asia’ will showcase four iconic female comedians coming together representing power and empowerment over two nights – March 17th and 18th at The Platform, Menara Ken TTDI, Kuala Lumpur.
Featuring a line-up of South East Asia’s comic super-stars with Singapore’s No 1 female comedian, Sharul Channa, Youtube sensation with over 33 million views, Yumi Nagashima from Japan, a comic with both North and South Korea heritage, Simmone Park, and local legendary Queen of Comedy, Joanne Kam from Malaysia, the Queens of Asia guarantee to give their multi-cultural fans a night of side-splitting laughs.
Meet Yumi Nagashima – A Tokyo-born actress, writer, and international comedian with an unforgettable allure. If you haven’t seen her viral videos on social media or YouTube, you might recognize her from her many TV appearances on Montreal’s Just For Laughs, Winnipeg Comedy Festival, CBC Gem – New Wave of Stand up, Comedy Central Asia, or, the Jakarta International Comedy Festival. Releasing her debut stand-up comedy album, My Name is Yumi in 2019, her fandom has only grown since to international heights.
Meet Sharul Channa – Formally trained in theatre from Lasalle, College of the Arts, Channa has been a full-time stand-up comedian for the last 13 years, performing to packed houses all over Asia and Australia. Over the past few years, Channa has used comedy to shed light on important, and sometimes neglected, social issues in Singapore. She has created and starred in many works like Crazy Poor Sita and Am I Old? earning her critical acclaim from the likes of The Straits Times.
Channa has also been flexing her comic repertoires with stand-up comedian, Kumar, doing stellar duo performances together to packed stage shows.
Bringing in the full high girl power vibe is Simmone Park from Korea based in Canada poised on getting back to her roots and touring Asia for the first time, after headlining shows in Korea, Thailand, Indonesia, Singapore, Malaysia, Cambodia, and Vietnam.
Second City trained, Simmone has performed stand-up comedy in ten countries, and has headlined the iconic Blue Note Hawaii, opened for Chris Redd of Saturday Night Live, shared a stage with Jerry Seinfeld and Jim Gaffigan at Gotham Comedy Club in NYC, MC’d and performed comedy at the 34th Annual Miss Asian Global Pageant in San Francisco (the longest running Asian cultural pageant in the world), and performed a comedy set in Costa Rica entirely in Spanish, a language she has never learned.
Malaysia’s own Queen of Comedy, Joanne Kam is a star in her own light with an amazing career in entertainment over the last 30 years. Bursting into the industry with stellar determination to carve her own niche in the nightlife category with her own brand of acerbic wit, astute content and female experiences as a new-age comedy star since the 90s, Joanne’s mercuric rise to fame and fandom has seen her holding court at Boom Boom Room cabarets, producing and performing in hits such as Romantic Fools, Shakespeare’s Taming of the Shrew and Kam, In Your Face, extending her repertoire to radio with gigs at Mix FM, Capital FM, RED FM, and AFO Radio. However, Joanne’s heart continues to beat for comedy and championing for female comedians, whilst actively pursuing a career in TV and Theatre as a performer and story-teller.
Founder and CEO of LOL ASIA, Mr Rizal Kamal, a champion of women empowerment himself shares his excitement of what is to come at the Queens of Asia show on March 17th and 18th. He states, “Super proud to bring these powerhouses of funny women together to demonstrate that the fairer sex can be a potent entity in a male-dominated comedy scene. These ladies are smart, hilarious and will certainly get the big laughs going.”
Urging her fans to come out in full house in a show of female strength, power and solidarity, comedian Joanne Kam enthusiastically shares, “We will show the boys how we women do it in comedy. This is a show that guarantees the best anyone has ever seen in an all-female comedy cast.”
Queens of Asia is brought to you by LOL Asia and Kam Productions.
