Many would say that us Singaporeans are insipid in our humour, but they haven’t been acquainted with our very own beloved Queen of Drag – Kumar. If our nation had its own amusing prodigal son, Kumar just may be it because he loves his country with a wicked sense of humour, and we love him right back. He always brings the laughs and bonus points for him too for always inserting local comedic context in his jokes with humble inspiration from his encounters at the coffee shops and markets – which is why we’re dying for a chance to catch him performing standup this week!
In his latest show, directed by Selena Tan, Kumar is set to be the superhero that stands up for his beloved nation. In a bid to celebrate and highlight Singapore’s journey from a swampy island of a few orang lauts (fishermen) to today’s bustling metropolis of millions, Kumar will make you baffle and laugh out loud at his jokes in deciphering the true meaning of Mari Kita. So if you’re up for an extraordinarily funny and laugh-until-your-stomach-hurts kind of evening, you better get your tickets for the show stat!
