In a world where laughter is the currency of joy, Kumar stands as the undisputed millionaire. South East Asia’s most iconic entertainer and Singapore’s beloved showman is ready to take you on a rollercoaster of humor and heart with his latest extravaganza, KUMARSUTRA: GREATEST HITS. But here’s the twist – it’s not just about the laughs this time; it’s about giving back and making a difference. Kumar is a man on a mission, and he’s inviting you to join the fun.

This season, Kumar is shedding his old skin, embracing a fresh vibe, a new persona, and a revamped appearance. Imagine your favorite superhero getting a costume upgrade, and that’s Kumar in a nutshell. With a series of “sold out” multi-state tours lined up, KUMARSUTRA: GREATEST HITS promises to be the show of the year. Catch it in Penang on October 14th, Kuala Lumpur on October 25th & 26th, and Johor Bahru on October 28th & 29th. And the cherry on top? It’s presented by LOL Asia, the maestro of comedy.

For those who can’t get enough of Kumar’s wit and wisdom, there’s a treat in store. Due to overwhelming demand, Penang is adding another date. Stay tuned for more details, because Kumar never leaves his fans hanging.

Now, let’s talk about Kumar’s résumé. This man is not just a performer; he’s a global sensation. He has entertained millions on world tours, with sold-out shows in cities like London, Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth, Jakarta, Bali, Bangkok, and Manila. He’s a comedian, TV host, actor, dancer, director, and author rolled into one. It’s a mouthful, but that’s Kumar for you.

But what sets Kumar apart from the rest is his heart of gold. He’s not content with just making you laugh; he’s on a comedy for charity mission in Malaysia, championing a cause for the homeless. KUMARSUTRA: GREATEST HITS is not just a comedy show; it’s a curated compilation of stories and experiences that will tickle your funny bone and warm your heart. Kumar’s comedy transcends age, gender, race, and ethnicity, bringing people together in laughter.

Malaysia holds a special place in Kumar’s heart. He’s had three hit national tours in the country in the recent past, and he’s not shy about declaring Malaysians as his “favourite audience.” Their strong, hard, rumbustious laughter is music to Kumar’s ears, and he knows how to play the crowd like a virtuoso.

Kumar’s comedy isn’t just about laughs; it’s about pushing boundaries and poking fun at the controversial while respecting local cultural ethos. He’s the friendly comedian you’d love to hang out with in your neighbourhood, the one who says what you’re thinking but never dare to say out loud. His nonchalant style will have you rolling in the aisles.

And let’s not forget Kumar’s fashion game. He’s all about eclectic gender-fluid fashion on stage, celebrating a carefully crafted persona that’s vivacious, flamboyant, and endearing to all age groups. Kumar’s cultural inclusivity and respect for diversity make him a true international artiste.

But there’s more to Kumar than meets the eye. He’s not just an entertainer; he’s a visionary extraordinaire. Kumar is leading the KUMARSUTRA: GREATEST HITS tour in Malaysia with a mission to create greater goodwill through example. He’s taking on the cause of the homeless, with the support of LOL Asia. Together, they’re joining hands with Malaysia’s well-known NGO, YELLOW HOUSE, to improve the lives of the homeless, the urban poor, and refugee communities. Kumar’s aim is to contribute to fundraising for this noble cause, building sustainable living spaces for those in need.

As Kumar himself puts it, “I love performing for Malaysians as they laugh the biggest, the hardest, the loudest. This tour, I hope and believe they will also give from the heart with their full participation towards the shows, so we can laugh together and entertain for a noble cause.”

Rizal Kamal, CEO of LOL Asia, adds, “Kumar is our neighbour’s biggest talent export, endeared by Singaporeans and Malaysians alike. Our association with the cause for charity towards the homeless is a joint endeavour we also believe in with Kumar.”

For Kumar’s fans, this tour is a golden opportunity. It’s your last chance to catch him delivering some classic jokes before they retire into comedy legend. Of course, he’ll also be serving up fresh material that has been fine-tuned in the post-pandemic world. So, don’t miss KUMARSUTRA: GREATEST HITS!
