Comedy Singapore

Preview: LA Comedy Live presents Jinx Yeo

LA Comedy Live presents Singaporean comedian Jinx Yeo — in his first LIVE full-length headline comedy show since the COVID-19 shutdown. Taking place in May, on the Vesak Day public holiday, the show will feature a mixture of new material and “greatest hits”.

Jinx Yeo pulls no punches, from Asian parenting, to weird diets, to Bitcoin fever, to PC cancel culture, to dating & relationships, and much more — Jinx makes fun of it all. Nominated “Best Comedy” at the Fringe World Awards 2018, his hard-hitting punchlines, effortless delivery, and clever material won him 1st Runner-Up at the Hong Kong International Comedy Festival (2011) and Finalist in the America Meet World Global Comedy Competition (2014).

Jinx’s TV appearances include Comedy Central Asia (where he was “Comedian of the Month” for June 2015); Channel 5’s “Ok Chope” as well as ABCTV’s “Comedy Up Late” (recorded at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival 2017). Birthed from intercourse between his strict conservative Asian upbringing, and anti-authoritarian Hippie influences from studying in America. Jinx’s comedy offers a fresh perspective that hasn’t been covered by many comedians, partly because Singaporeans have often been stereotyped as humourless and regimented people.

The show also features a supporting cast of two of Singapore’s fast-rising comedy
stars — Jacky Ng and Siraj Aziz.

LA Comedy Live’s Lauretta Alabons says: “Jinx had his first paid gig in 2011 at Rob
Schneider’s show presented by LA Comedy Live. 10 years on in 2021, Jinx is headlining a comedy show at the Esplanade Concert Hall with LA Comedy Live. The COVID-19 shutdown has reunited us.”

Jinx Yeo plays on 26th May 2021 at the Esplanade Concert Hall. Tickets available from SISTIC
