The Comedy Club Asia is proud to present the Singapore Comedy Fringe 2015. This five-day event will feature a stellar line-up of some of the best regional and international comedic talents.
Singapore Comedy Fringe is a celebration of the art of stand up comedy. This comedy festival focuses on established and rising trans-Asian comedy stars with a host of international acts to make this truly groundbreaking event. In the 7 years since The Comedy Club Asia began producing live stand up comedy in the region; we’ve seen a phenomenal growth in local talent in the neighboring countries such as Malaysia, Philippines and Hong Kong. The Fringe will assemble these rising stars alongside the established and international stars to share the stage. The Singapore Comedy Fringe will feature an amazing program of local and international stand up comedy. In 2014, the annual Singapore Comedy Fringe featured over 30 comedians in 8 shows over four days and had over 3,000 attendees with a impressive run of consecutive sold out shows. In 2015, the Singapore Comedy Fringe will be expanded to 12 shows with over 34 comedians over five days. 10 shows will be held at the DBS Arts Centre and 2 shows will be at House of Timbre.
