Magners Singapore International Comedy Festival 2014 - Acts

Not to be missed acts include the phenomenally audacious Luisa Omielan (UK) whose show ‘What would Beyoncé do?’ at the London Soho Theatre has garnered top reviews, be sure to catch the extremely well-received Nik Coppin (UK) whose show ‘Mixed Racist’ is inspired by his own experience of being labeled a racist. Giggle yourselves silly in an interactive hour of ‘educational’ drinking (patrons get to sample some whiskies) with Alan Anderson’s ‘Whisky for Dafties’ as it promises to shed light and laughter on the much-loved beverage. And for a once in a lifetime chance to laugh inappropriately, catch self-titled migga (midget) Imaan Hadchiti (Aus) as he uses his passion for stand-up to deal with people’s ignorance.

As part of the Magners Singapore International Comedy Festival, the search is on to find the comedy stars of tomorrow. In association with the Laughing Horse Comedy organisers who have discovered Greg Davies, Russel Kane Jack Whitehall and Rhod Gilbert, comedians have the chance to make a name for themselves and a shot to win a once in a lifetime trip to the Edinburgh festival including flights, accommodation and a venue to perform in. Entry is open to any act (local or foreign national) that meets the competition requirements. More details are available on

Organised by Magic Rock Pte Ltd, the Magners Singapore International Comedy Festival 2014 is set to be the largest international comedy event ever seen in Singapore. Early Bird Tickets can be bought from $15 for one show or from $50 for as many as you can squeeze into one night.
