Funniest Person In The World Harith Iskander Urges Malaysians To Celebrate The Best of Malaysia in His Upcoming Nationwide Tour

Catch Our Beloved Funny Man at the Celcom Harith Iskander's #KitaOK Live Comedy Tour 2018 this February and March

Let's face it! The patriotism and solidarity Malaysians share amid tough times are indeed no laughing matter but if there is one person who can satirize typical Malaysian anecdotes and leave its people in stitches, it has to be Laugh Factory's Funniest Person in The World 2016, Harith Iskander. 

That's exactly what the Godfather of Malaysian stand-up comedy intends to do at the Celcom Harith Iskander's #KitaOK Live Comedy Tour 2018 this February and March - and to remind Malaysians that , above all, #KitaOK as a nation!    

Proudly presented by Celcom, the upcoming comedy tour will first see Harith take the stage in Kuala Lumpur on 24 February night (8:30pm) at the Axiata Arena causing infectious laughter and hysterics which will then spread around the country. 

For those who can't get enough of Harith's homeland hilarities and need additional bouts of laughter can plan a cuti-cuti Malaysia to catch the tour mainly in Johor Bahru (The Thistle - 1 March), Melaka (Ramada Hotel - 9 March), Penang (The Top Ballroom, Komtar - 10 March), Kuching (The Pullman Hotel - 14 March), Kota Kinabalu (Port View Palace Hall, Dewan Hakka- 15 March) and Labuan (Tiara Labuan Hotel - 16 March).

In the early years, through his innate talent of producing and performing humour based on everyday Malaysian way of life, Harith was the first to successfully pioneer and introduce local style stand-up comedy that Malaysians from all walks of life have become fond of. 

Today, after having conquered the comedy scene in Malaysia for the past 27 years (and that’s a long time), Harith has succeeded in putting Malaysia on the comedy map twice by winning Laugh Factory's Funniest Person In The World 2016 competition and recently releasing a Netflix original comedy special.

In spite of his international achievements and fame, Harith mostly takes pride in his comedy sketches that aptly and wittily capture the unique Malaysian culture as a result of our nation's rich diversity of multi-racial co-existence. It is no surprise then that Harith, in partnership with Celcom, will tour his home ground again to deliver the laughs.

"With new insights on what it means to represent Malaysia on the world stage, my passion now is to unite the rakyat and incite the true meaning of being Malaysian through my signature theatrical style of comedy based on our history, culture and other funny things that make us uniquely Malaysian. 

"I hope the Celcom Harith Iskander's #KitaOK Live Comedy Tour 2018 will act as a clarion call to Malaysians to look at the brighter side of things amid whatever upheaval Malaysia has to endure and to count our blessings for the peace, harmony and of course laughter we Malaysians continue to enjoy," says Harith.

Azwan Khan Osman Khan, Deputy Chief Executive Officer, Business Operations of Celcom Axiata Berhad said that Celcom is proud to be the presenter for #KitaOK Live Comedy Tour 2018, as it signifies the support and contribution towards solidarity of Malaysians.

“Celcom Axiata embraces harmonious diversity and racial unity and this is the very reason we are honoured to be part of this tour. We believe that Harith Iskander has all it takes to represent ‘1Malaysia’ spirit in his satire, and it shall remind us that it is our unity that has brought us to where we are today and further”, he said.

If there’s one message Harith intends to send out to Malaysians during this comedy tour is to always stay united and to never give up our great Malaysian sense of humour. 

Staying true to his reputation as one of our national treasures, Harith is ready for the Celcom Harith Iskander's #KitaOK nationwide journey with a mission to bring Malaysians together, once again, through comedy- Malaysian style!
