Kuala Lumpur International Comedy Festival 2015 (KLICF) – [Giveaway] ONG-ALS Babbling Comedy Korea media passes
Stand-up comedy, improvisational comedy, sketch comedy, magic comedy, we’ve got comedy from the ascerbic to the absurd, and everything in between. Across genres, across countries and oh, across languages too! English, Malay, Cantonese, Tagalog, Bahasa Indonesia, and even physical comedy, all under an international umbrella of universal laughter and a shared sense of humour.
16th to 23rd September 2015
1) Crackhouse Comedy Club KL at Taman Tun Dr. Ismail
International Comedy Hypnotist Alan Bates presents a fast moving comedy stage presentation. The Stars of the Stage may find themselves winning the Lottery on stage, meeting celebrities, starring in the cast of River Dance, feeding baby fairies or even conducting an orchestra at the Royal Albert Hall, London and receiving a Knighthood from her Majesty the Queen.
This is just a small insight as to what may happen. Alan prides himself on the respectability of the performance. The show includes audience participation but Alan stresses that you can not be hypnotised against your will and that you will not do anything against your own personal moral values, “That is why Alan looks for volunteers without any values”!
Headlined and encore in his very first stand up gig. Hung, the world’s first, best and tallest Vietnamese comic guarantees to spin your mind, dazzle your imagination and awaken your funny zones.
29th April 1975, the last day of the Vietnam war, a nine year old boy jumped onto a leaking prawn trawler on Saigon River with a box of dried biscuits and some seasick pills and managed to survive thirst and hunger to cheat death to become one of the first Vietnamese boat people to land in Australia. His movies include The Wogboy, Fat Pizza, True Love and Chaos, Broken Hill and Sensitive New Age Killer.Hung is a favourite at Montreal Comedy Festival, Edinburgh Festival and Melbourne International Comedy Festival. An author, musician, clown, actor and all round song and dance man…Hung’s stand up work and theatre shows are always edgy, satirical, political and his musical send ups go straight for the jocular.His first book ‘The Yellow Peril From Sin City’ was released through Penguin.
His second, a children’s book ‘BarryNoodles & DaKillerBs’ is with Random House. A constant on the world festival stage and TV since 1988, Hung has made documentaries for the ABC, SBS, Discovery Channel. TV includes CNN, MTV, The Muppet Show, Wow Wow[Japan], London Weekend Television and all throughout Asia.“We used to live across the road from the Presidential Palace, which in the 70s in Saigon was a really stupid place to live. They say Vietnam brought the war into people’s living rooms…yeah, you’re telling me, and we didn’t even have a TV.One side of our front yard was a statue of the Buddha that my father, Le Thanh Nhon, made. He was Vietnam’s most famous artist.
At the end of
the war, the communists smashed all his work but they didn’t touch his Buddha because there’s an old Buddhist saying; KARMA SUITS YA.
We left Vietnam 29th April 1975. We had 3 hours to leave, so quickly we packed our bags, loaded the car, fed the dog…to granny, and fanged it down to the dock. There would’ve been heaps more of us except, at the same time, Hollywood released JAWS. And that, my friends is why ‘CHARLIE DON’T SURF!”

His over-seas experiences include two tours for the troops in Afghanistan, performing at The famous Falaki theatre at the American University in Cairo during the Egyptian revolution and the Edinburgh fringe in Scotland, where he received three 4 star reviews from international press. Towards the end of 2013, he moved to London for 1 year (following the path of his two biggest comedic influences, Patrice O’Neal and Bill Hicks).

An award winning international comedian with TV and commercial credits in the United States and UK, Tamer has a deep understanding of the human condition. A regular at the Comedy Store, Improv and Laugh Factory in Los Angeles. This is one comic you do not want to miss live.
Jonathan Atherton is one of Australia’s finest stand-up comedians. He is also an actor, television presenter, voice artist, screen writer and award winning photographer.
A love of culture and adventure drew him away from the staid corridors of academia and into the heart of the third world. He spent most of the 80’s travelling through Asia and Africa where he worked as tour guide, salvage diver, teacher, set builder, photographer, restaurateur and actor.
In Thailand in 1991 he was run over by a truck and evacuated to Australia where he spent over a year in traction, fighting gangrene, antibiotic resistant infection and the devastating effects of 17 compound fractures to his legs, arms and spine. He underwent a dozen major operations. But he never lost his sense of humour.
In fact the stories he brought back from his prolific travels formed the nucleus of his initial comedy performances. While still in plaster he was coaxed on stage by a cabaret singer who maintained that his poignantly hilarious anecdotes were funnier than the diatribe of the professional comedians who worked at the club where she performed.
After just one appearance in 1993 at the Sit Down Comedy Club in Brisbane, Australia, he was hooked on the art of stand-up comedy… despite a temporary inability to actually stand up without the aid of crutches! With a bag of stories and a keen insight into the human condition, he honed his comedy skills touring that vast continent, dispensing laughter wherever he went.
He speaks a multitude of languages – Indonesian, Malay, Thai, Japanese, Swahili, Luganda, and German… and has a passing knowledge of Burmese Tagalog, Lao, Hindi, Batak, Urdu, Arabic, Hokkien and Mandarin.
More important than language, says Atherton, is an ability to comprehend discourse strategies and social boundaries. In this sense he is at home anywhere on the planet.
Back from touring and performing in sold-out shows around the world, Ong-als will be bringing their slaptastically funny brand of humour here in KL! Despite being 100% Korean, this group transcends language and cultural barriers as they present their ‘babbling man-baby’ physical comedy routine!

There are no ugly women, only lazy ones? What does this mean?
Some people are forget the importance of hygiene and it is important to be presentable especially when you always surrounding by potential clients. Fruitale just came out with their new campaign “Pertandingan Transformasi Fruitale FairWhite UV”.
Washing your body can improve your mental health. In the journal Current Directions in Psychological Science, people who were cleaner felt better most things in their lives. The act of cleaning is symbolic. You’re not just getting rid of dirt and odors. You can think about washing away bad experiences, bad decisions, etc.
So, what does the 1st sentence mean? Does this mean every woman is beautiful, but they just neglect to brush up themselves? Everyone have their own point of view when it comes to “beautiful”. I do have friend who have smelly body and it’s really disturbing. When I went to UiTM Shah Alam Fruitale booth, I found out that most of their shower gel and soap have really nice fruits smell.

I reached kinda early and I saw quite a number of parents and their children who are interested to gain more knowledge about this course. If you think that food is all about to make your tummy full, you are wrong. Especially when it comes to commercials.
What is Culinology®?
Basically it is a combination of culinary arts, technology and science. Imagine every single gram of food/nutrition are counted? A Culinologists® is a chef who can cook and understand the science behind mass production of food and would eventually work hand-in-hand with food scientist to produce a product.
The term ‘Culinology®’ was coined by the U.S. based Research Chefs Association(RCA). Founded in 1996 by a group of research chefs working in the food product development industry, the association has witnessed the growing trend for professional chefs to become intimately involved in the research and development process. Traditionally, it was food scientists who have been at the forefront of developing new products for the mass market, with a focus on food preservation and commercialisation.
Graduates can be called a Culinologists®, and have the option to work as as Chef Consultant, R&D Manager or R&D Chef, Hygiene Consultant, Quality Manager, Sensorial Analysis Manager, Corporate Chef, Corporate Executive Chef, Test Kitchen Chef and other similar positions in the food industry
After the briefing, we had the opportunity to witness Culinology® in Action, Chef Sharizan made mayonnaise by mixing egg yolk with oil. For me, I still prefer the normal mayonnaise that sold at the shop. Nicer lol. At 1st, their attempt failed because they did not use the right amounts of ingredients. The 2nd time, it turned out good. It’s proven that to produce a perfect product, a combination of culinary arts, technology & science will help a lot.
Bachelor of Science (Hons) Culinology®:
The Culinology® programme offered at Taylor’s University is the first complete Culinology® degree to be offered outside the USA.
