Bangkok Hilarious will be hosting STAND UP SIAM, an International Stand-Up Comedy Competition that see’s 20 comedians enter, six advancing to round 2, and one emerging as the Champion of Stand-Up Siam.
The festival is a 3 night event hosting a rich diversity of International Comedians from 6 continents as well as local expat comedians and even a native Thai comedian.
This festival could not come at a more opportune time as Bangkok is the top tourist destination in the world, and its rich and cosmopolitan blend of culture and tolerance are the ideal conditions for Stand-Up Comedy to truly cultivate.
With a world class reputation for wild escapades and legendary tales of its untamed nightlife there is no reason the home of Stand-Up Comedy in Asia should be anywhere else.
Events like this are helpful for developing the local scene, which has already gained a solid footing in the vast selection of live entertainment Bangkok has to offer. When the local comedy scene is cultivated it attracts bigger acts, and those bigger acts resonate with the local audience who keep supporting that local scene. Support live comedy and give Bangkok the comedy scene she deserves.
Of all the venue options Bangkok has to offer we extend an invitation to you for STAND UP SIAM January – 12th and 13th.
20 Comedians will enter the semi-finals at the Live Lounge on Sukhumvit Soi 13, and 6 will move on to compete in the final round, taking place at Father Ted’s Irish Bar in the beautiful beachside city of Hua-Hin on 15 January.
This will be a comedy showcase unlike any other on the continent so don’t miss your chance to laugh the night away!
Until then be sure to stop by Live Lounge for Stand-Up Comedy. For details on weekly show dates and times, follow www.facebook\BangkokHilarious.
