Singapore-based company Standup Asia is bringing four standup specialists Shazia Mirza and Trevor Evor from the UK, Aidan Killian from Ireland and Fathimath Nuha from Maldives to The Westin Grande Sukhumvit, Bangkok this Saturday night (January 26) at 8.30.

Mirza, an award-winning comedian, writer, and popular television and radio personality of Pakistani heritage, strikes a blow with her brave and on-point comedy.

Her critically acclaimed show, “The Kardashians Made Me Do It”, was listed as one of the 50 funniest acts in British comedy. It played 103 nights internationally across the UK, USA, Sweden, Ireland, and France, completing four sellout runs at London’s Soho Theatre. She has stepped up a gear in her most recent international tour, “With Love From St Tropez”.

Lock, star of the award-winning, BAFTA-nominated “Star Stories”, manoeuvres true stories, one-liners, flights of fancy, and plausible theories into his stream of consciousness freestyle stand-up that has continued to deliver mesmerising performances year-after-year at the Edinburgh Fringe and beyond, including “Trevor Lock’s Community Circle:, a two-hour “social experiment” that received 5-star reviews and described as “the most fun you can have without taking your clothes off”.

Killian, one of the most daring, original, and thought-provoking comedians around, has now performed his unique comedy style for seven Edinburgh Fringes, becoming known for his master class in satire. He was nominated for Best Comedian at the World Fringe in 2017. He carried on bringing laughter to audiences across the globe during his two-year world comedy tour.

Nuha, meanwhile, is a hilarious hijabi dedicated to spreading the thrill of halal humour. Based in Kuala Lumpur for the past seven years, Nuha is the first Maldivian stand-up comic to dominate in the both female and hijabi departments.

Early bird tickets are on sale now for Bt500 and Bt800 at the door, or Bt1,400 for VIP tickets, which includes free-flow drinks before the show and during the break a meet & greet with the comedians, and the best seats in the house.
