Hard Rock Cafe Kuala Lumpur today announced its partnership with The Comedy Club Kuala Lumpur as the official venue for its monthly Wednesday and Thursday night stand-up comedy. The 11-months partnership programme will end on 19 February 2015. The first official comedy night will begin on 19 March 2014 will feature local and internationally renowned comedians.
“Hard Rock Cafe is always about quality entertainment having hosted various local and international performances in the past, and have since become a preference amongst performers as the venue to showcase their skills. We are delighted that The Comedy Club KL has chosen us as their official venue looking at its high profile in hosting highly renowned comedians”, said Roberto Pettinau, General Manager of Hard Rock Cafe Kuala Lumpur.
“The strategic venue of Hard Rock Cafe Kuala Lumpur is ideal as a venue for stand-up comedies. Moreover, the association with an internationally renowned brand offers a great opportunity for our comedians to further build and strengthen their portfolio,” said Jack Jeganesan, Chief Entertainment Officer of LOL Events.
Amongst the comedians performing on the first night will be Daniel Kinno, who has performed his stand-up comedy on TV shows on NBC, MTV, The Game Show Network and The WB and has been described as “skilled with a charming and smart act” by The Hollywood Reporter. He delivers insightful narratives on topics ranging from the menial tasks of daily life, to relationships, pop culture, history, and his unusual Russian heritage with a truly unique perspective.
Dave Callan, an Irish born star of triple J radio and original Rove cast member who has performed at various events including the Edinburgh Festival, will also be performing at The Comedy Club KL. He has toured Britain, Southeast Asia, Australia and the United States of America for his stand-up comedy shows and has also embraced his roots by lending his voice as Feargal, the Irish Sea Cucumber, in the animated series ‘Mollusks’. He has also performed in a live show that was nominated for Best Comedy at the Adelaide Fringe in 2013, ‘The Psychology of Laughter’.
In addition to the list of comedians is local stand-up comedian, Andrew Netto. Having performed on stage with superstar comedians including Russell Peters, he has then expanded his career with performances in Australia and Singapore. As the Malaysian Book of Records holder for ‘The First Stand-up Comedy Performance on a Plane’, he is described as the comic with more spin than a high speed turbine, with his twist and insights in the daily workings of the average Joe.

Hard Rock Cafe Kuala Lumpur has hosted various local and international performers, including Faizal Tahir, Datuk Ramli Sarip, New Zealand rock band, I Am Giant and renowned Australian band, 1927.
