Presented by The Milstead Company
A night of trailblazing queer comedy from across Asia.
These four international comedy stars are the new sound of the Asian century. Breaking the rules and queering the mic from Mumbai to Manila, these out, proud and hilarious performers are furiously funny and hot, hot, hot.
Spice Night features Singaporean Youtube star Hirzi Zulkiflie who has hundreds of thousands of social media followers and in the last eighteen months has hosted TV shows for BBC Studios/Channel 5 Singapore, and Comedy Central Asia; the Queen of Malaysian Comedy, Joanne Kam, one of the pioneers of comedy in the region who headlined Comedy Zone Asia for the Melbourne International Comedy Festival in 2019; India’s only out gay stand-up, Navin Noronha — who has a hit podcast Keeping It Queer and comes to Australia direct from presenting his solo show The Good Child at the Bengalaru Comedy Festival; and Filipino-Australian Margot Tanjutco who was nominated for a Golden Gibbo award at the Melbourne Comedy Festival for her solo show Vanity Fair Enough.
Coming from countries where homosexuality still is or until recently was criminalised, these jokers are sharp and salty, and pack more punch than a pound of pepper. It should be illegal to be this funny, not this gay.
Spice up your night with the camp, cutting edge of global comedy.
