La Promenade Mall keeps the laughs coming

KUCHING: La Promenade Mall will host its third stand-up comedy show this year on Oct 28, Fri, featuring double headliners, Andrew Netto and Keren Bala Devan.

Andrew and Keren will bring their “Covidian” tour to Kuching-Samarahan for one night only at the mall, which also hosted Mad Sabah in Jul and Kavin Jay in Aug.

Andrew and Keren are both veterans of the stand-up circuit in the region — Andrew has been performing since 2006, while Keren began his stand-up career 10 years ago.

The last time they performed in Kuching was in 2019, just prior to the pandemic.

“I first got to know of Andrew and Keren from a Tatler magazine article in 2016. In 2019, I saw their ‘Angry Indians Live’ show in Kuching and really had the best time. It was a sold-out show, it was so funny, and I’m so glad that they’re coming to perform at La Promenade Mall,” Hock Seng Lee digital marketing and corporate communications manager Sophia Ong said.

Early bird tickets are priced at just RM55 each.

“We want to pack out our hall that can fit 200 people. Comedy is best when there’s a crowd. Tickets are cheap now so hurry. Prices will revert to RM75,” Ong said.

The east Malaysia leg of the Covidian show includes Kuching, Labuan and Kota Kinabalu.

After concluding their shows here, both stand-ups have busy year-ends lined up. Andrew will be part of the five-comedian show “Still Up, Still Coming” at PJ Performing Arts Centre on Nov 4 and 5.

The show will include Kuah Jen Han and Phoon Chi Ho (of the famed MACC group), Rizal Van Geyzel (founder of the Crackhouse Comedy Club) and Kavin Jay (as seen on Netflix).

“Year-end is always a busy time for comics. I’m so pleased to have HSL present Andrew and Keren’s Covidian tour at La Promenade Mall. After such a long pandemic, it’s high time we all laugh together,” Ong said.

All La Promenade’s stand-up shows have featured alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks.
