LA COMEDY LIVE

LA Comedy LIVE has been responsible for bringing the biggest stars and the loudest laughs in Singapore and Hong Kong.

With a stellar record of presenting comedy heavyweights to the Singaporean audience, we have enjoyed tremendous success in all arenas.

Russell Peters in 2012, became the fastest selling comedy show in Singapore selling 2 nights at the Singapore Indoor Stadium - only to return in 2013 by popular demand and sell out the Indoor Stadium again. 2013 saw Chris Tucker (Rush Hour) selling out Kallang Theatre and Michael McIntyre (The UK’s Best Kept Secret) sold out the Star Theatre and in 2014, John Cleese of Monty Python fame sold out two nights at The University Cultural Centre at NUS.

In 2016, LA Comedy Live also became the first promoter to present American Reality show, Rupaul’s Drag Race Battle of The Seasons in Asia. Since then, bringing the colourful drag shows to Asia has been the company’s many other fortes.
