MTalent Asia is proud to bring to you, Malaysia’s very own rising international stand-up comedian, Kavin Jay on his debut nationwide live comedy tour this August 2018. The nationwide tour entitled “KAVIN JAY : ANGER MANAGEMENT” was officially announced earlier today at a press conference held at TGV cinemas, One Utama.
The nationwide tour comes after Kavin Jay joined the ranks of notable comedians like Russell Peters and Gabriel Iglesias with his own Netflix Original ‘Everybody Calm Down!’ which began streaming on the Netflix platform as of February this year. Being one of the only 3 Southeast Asian comics with their own Netflix special, Kavin now plans to bring his world class stand-up comedy, live to audiences across the country.
“I have not done a solo tour before, and I think it is high time I did. I love performing for Malaysians and if they can’t come to me, I’ll go to them. It is always so much fun to make my fellow Malaysians laugh, and especially after all that we have been through these past few weeks, I think a little entertainment is in order!” said Kavin Jay.
Kavin Jay’s comedic journey has been a nothing short of an adventure. The 38-year-old comedian has been doing comedy since 2006, but if it weren’t for his late brother, Kavin would not have ventured into comedy. It was a journey of trial and error where he eventually learnt that the art of comedy has its own science and methodology behind it.
Kavin in now setting foot in 8 cities across Malaysia and this nationwide tour is said to be one of the largest national comedy tours in Malaysia. Out of the 8 cities, TGV Cinemas is honored to be hosting 7 of the shows as the cinema partner whilst SOCAR Malaysia will be the tour’s car-sharing service partner in Peninsular Malaysia. Joining Kavin on this very much anticipated tour is Mister Potato’s Papi Zak and up-and-coming comedian Brian Tan.
