Do you remember when the last time you laugh was? When we grow up, we tend to forget laughing due to stress and obstacles that we face every day. Especially for us Malaysian, we’ve been through a lot of tragedy incidents that have never happened before in year 2014.

“Harith Iskander…To know Malaysia is to LAUGH MALAYSIA!” is the biggest night of stand-up comedy in Malaysia. It features new talents in the Malaysian comedy scene as well as other seasoned international 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, 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.
I was honored to attend the “Harith Iskander…To know Malaysia is to LAUGH MALAYSIA!” launch held at No.11 Espressolab Sunway Damansara. I took me quite a while to find out the exact location of the huge espresso lab which was converted from a factory to a cozy coffee shop.
“Synonymous to the government’s effort of promoting brotherhood and camaraderie amongst fellow Malaysians, my vision for Malaysians is to come together for one night under one roof to display the strength of who we are and what we stand for as Malaysians - Unity, Moderation and Oneness. It’s time for Malaysians to turn DISTRESS into DE-stress,” says Harith during the launch.
Joining in the effort of uniting Malaysians through laughter are also big hearted Malaysian corporations that have stepped up to support this event under the LAUGH MALAYSIA Umbrella namely Celcom First, Sime Darby Foundation, Seremban 2, MTT Priority and Pemandu.
To make the show even more meaningful, 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. “As my lovely wife and my manager, Dr. Jezamine and I are ambassadors of OrphanCARE, we hope that this contribution will go towards ensuring that these less fortunate children receive the care and support of loving families hence living up to the NGO’s motto “Every child Needs a Family””, adds Harith.
Jointly produced by Harith Iskander V Day Productions & AMC Live Group, in partnership with Perbadanan Stadium Malaysia, ‘Laugh Malaysia’ promises a night of rip-roaring laughter to its audience. ‘To know Malaysia is to LAUGH MALAYSIA’ will also feature one of the best of the new crop of Malaysian comedian’s, Dr Jason Leong, as well as special guest Papa CJ – one of India’s most influential comedians.
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. He is now ready to bring that back home in front of his own people. I’m sure we’re going to have a night full of laughter and happiness brought by these standup comedians.
