Not forget my blogger buddy too, Juneci which I actually saw her comment appear in the post. I just got a click and decided to bring my bf along to this show.

We'll have our first comedian, Jarred Fell. He isn't just a normal Magician but he combines a fast paced razor sharp with his tornado like approach to Magic, Gore and Comedy that you can ever imagine. Jarred has been on the NZ Comedy scene professionally for several years now. He has performed in 4 previous New Zealand International Comedy Festivals and has sold out numerous seasons of shows. His style of comedy and magic had him touring all over New Zealang since 2009; performing, recording and entertaining at some of the top corporate events nationwide.
Can't tell you guys his MAGIC + GORE + COMEDY is way so amazing. It was kinda 18 + show but it mix up with his magic and hilarious act of his own. I was amaze of how he can pull of of his magic card show with all the hilarious comedy. Nevertheless we are really enjoy his show!

Next up we have Ong-als Babbling Comedy from Korea. Back from touring and performing in sold out shows around the world, Ong-als will be bringing their slaptastically funny brand of humor here in KL. Despite being 100% Korean, this group transcends language and cultural barriers as they present their "Babbling Man Baby" Physical comedy routine.
I totally fall in love with their show. I can't keep laughing all the way with all their funny and acting humor action. Wearing the baby costume and hair in performing, it really hard to not to fall with their funny and cute performance. I love how they brings out the humor by acting and babbling out, that's make Ong-als show is for everyone, even children can just laugh all the way with Ong-als show.
Each of the members carry out different personalities in the show, synchronize with each other and makes this show out from our expectation.
Not forget with their Awesome and Creative Beat Box performance is the highlight of Ong-als show! We were totally amazed and shocked with the talent of each of every member of Ong-als. How can they be so perfect for each other in making this show end with PERFECT LAUGH and ENDING. I'm so gonna miss them and wish to see them again in Malaysia.

Through out the day, I can't stop laughing with all the show from KLIC Fest, I can say that Harith Iskander definitely makes this KLIC Fest a success in terms of arranging the shows, the venue, the date, the comedians from over the world and MAKING all the AUDIENCE LAUGH, bring happiness to the audience and share joy to all. Thanks Harith Iskander for this wonderful KLIC Fest, Tammy for promote and share this good show for us, Christopher Tock for the media passes so that I can able to enjoy the LOL moment with my loves one.
I learn that able to listen and understand English from different countries is really does challenging for me as I am a born Malaysia Broken English.
I learn that listening to different countries Comedy Stand Up Show can learn different knowledge about their country. But if your common knowledge is really bad like me plus I'm not reading newspaper also. It was somehow difficult to understand some of the joke.
I learn that laughing does make people feel tired also, I'm not sure whether is a compliment or not but is good though that you will be able to sleep through the night without insomnia.
After all, I was really enjoy my night. Although not able to continue stay until the end with my tired mind and body. But the fun and laughter that we have on that day, it will become a wonderful memory for us. I hope that this Stand Up Comedy will continue to shine out to the world and continue to share the laughter to people around the world.
