Stand-up comedians in Singapore you should know right now


The wait is over – the highly anticipated Joker is finally in cinemas. Not your average superhero flick, director Todd Phillips’ much-raved about film is a dark, gritty character study of Batman’s most notorious nemesis. Set in 80s Gotham City, the origin story follows Golden Globes Award-winning Joaquin Phoenix as the titular character. Follow the aspiring stand-up comic who turns to a life of crime after failing to make ends meet. Only a handful of characters, especially antagonists, can capture the public’s imagination quite the Clown Prince of Crime. And speaking of stand-up comedians, here are some Singaporean comics who are dominating stages around the world with a mic and quick wit. Hopefully, watching the world burn à la the Joker isn’t part of their set. RECOMMENDED: The best comedy clubs in Singapore and upcoming stand-up and comedy shows in Singapore
