In need of tears of laughter and being tired from laughing so hard? This is the event for you. MTalent Asia is proud to bring to you, Malaysia’s very own rising international stand-up comedian , Kavin Jay on his debut nationwide live comedy tour this August 2018. The nationwide tour entitled “KAVIN JAY: ANGER MANAGEMENT” was officially announced yesterday at a press conference held at TGV cinemas, One Utama.
The nationwide tour comes after Kavin Jay joined the ranks of notable comedians like Russell Peters and Gabriel Iglesias with his own Netflix Original ‘Everybody Calm Down!’ which began streaming on the Netflix platform as of February this year. Being one of the only 3 Southeast Asian comics with their own Netflix special, Kavin now plans to bring his world-class stand-up comedy, live to audiences across the country.
“I have not done a solo tour before, and I think it is high time I did. I love performing for Malaysians and if they can’t come to me, I’ll go to them. It is always so much fun to make my fellow Malaysians laugh, and especially after all that we have been through these past few weeks, I think a little entertainment is in order!” said Kavin Jay.
The former marine engineer now performs extensively in the local comedy scene, and over the past five years has also taken his comedy across three continents; Asia Pacific, Africa and Europe. The icing on Kavin’s cake so far has got to be his own Netflix stand-up comedy special “Kavin Jay: Everybody Calm Down!” as one of only two Malaysian comics who’s been given such a spot on the world’s largest streaming platform. His Netflix performance met with critical acclaim and rave reviews, including being the only Asian comedian listed in the top 10 rank of American publication The Wrap’s ‘2018’s Best Netflix Comedy Special’.
In a short interview with the funny man himself, he hopes to see more growth and the ability to change the people’s perception of how great and talented the comedy scene here in Malaysia through the power of media.
“The media needs to start changing the mentality by introducing the readers to new things and content of what they should read.
