Cambodia’s Biggest Ever Comedy Show Comes to Town TONIGHT

Looking for something a little different to do this evening? Get yourself down to the Department of Performing arts to catch two giants of international comedy, right here in Phnom Penh.

Yes, that’s right, Australia’s Andy Curtain and the UK’s Jojo Smith are both performing at the theatre tonight, in a very special standup comedy night organised by Comedy in Cambodia.

Who’s Andy Curtain?

Based in Shanghai, Andy has toured through 22 cities across Asia, Australia and America (with a little support, maybe he’ll even be able to progress further along the alphabet). He owns a comedy club called Kung Fu Comedy, as well as hosting a podcast and releasing regular videos, and is set to take his sold-out “Life In China” show to the Melbourne Comedy Festival next month.

Here’s a little taster of what to expect:

Who’s JoJo Smith?

An ex-journalist turned popular talk show host turned English standup with 13 years’ experience, JoJo began her comedy career on late night TV before her online comedy videos launched her to global fame.

She’s played sold-out tours of South Africa, Shanghai, Dubai and Abu Dhabi, appeared on Comic Relief and at a number of major comedy festivals around the world, and is a favourite on the legendary Jongleurs stage back home in the UK, as well as playing to a number of 1,000-seater venues.

Here’s a little taster for you:

How Much Is It?

Tickets are $10, but if you’re going in a group you might just be able to wangle a discount. You can buy your tickets from the venue from 7pm tonight. The show starts at 8.30pm.

Andy Curtain & JoJo Smith Live at the DPA, 8.30pm, Friday 22nd September @ Department of Performing Arts, St 384

    This was not the biggest ever comedy show in Cambodia. The promoter, Dan Riley, has brought in bigger name comedians than these two on a few occasions over the past 5 or 6 years he’s been doing this. Not that they aren’t talented and well-worth seeing or that it isn’t great for Cambodia that they performed here, but … Maybe tone down the hyperbole a bit or consult someone who has lived here a bit longer first. =)

      Hi NK. Thanks for your comment. We interviewed Dan Riley for this piece, and he let us know this is the first time that the Comedy Club has put on a show in a theatre venue of this size. Hope that clears things up!
