While the taps might be dry this weekend the jokes sure won’t be with international roast battle Your Hood’s A Joke making its first ever appearance in Bangkok.
Dubbed the “Olympics of shit talking”, this comedy show hails all the way from Toronto and will be hosted by its founder – also the founder and producer of Toronto Comedy All Stars – Danish Anwar.
The line-up includes Bangkok comedy star 28-year-old Chris Raufeisen, a Thai-American former soldier and co-founder of Raw Comedy, known for regularly roasting either tourists at Khaosan Comedy Club or himself at Comedy Club Bangkok. Without giving too much away, Chris tells us, “I’ve been called the dirtiest and darkest comedian in Asia by many, so expect nothing but brutally clever jokes, dark, dirty and twisted punchlines that will make you laugh out loud and say wow I can’t believe he said that”.
His brutal jokes will be directed at Minkus Nguyen representing Vietnam. Other verbal beatdowns include China vs. Japan, Canada vs. USA, Singapore vs. Indonesia and Australia vs. Ireland, which comes just in time for St Patrick’s Day this Sunday.
The comedy scene in Bangkok has grown tremendously over the last couples of years with no shortage of local and international talent coming up on stage. Chris notes in the Bangkok scene, “There is a gang load of hilarious hard working comedians who aspire to go places with comedy. They put in the work and it shows.”
Each ticket includes a complimentary pass to Magners International Comedy Festival Gala at Westin Grande Sukhumvit on April 5. Tickets are B450 presale or B600 at the door.
