Spice Night: Joanne Kam

The “Queen of Malaysian Comedy” is one of the pioneers of the region, an established and high-profile comedian, host, actor and broadcaster for nearly 20 years. Joanne was a part of the seminal Singapore queer cabaret club The Boom Boom Room in the mid-90s (later franchised to Kuala Lumpur), which has set the tone for her dirty, flirty, high camp standup ever since.

Joanne headlined the sold-out Comedy Zone Asia showcase at the 2019 Melbourne International Comedy Festival, and comes to Spice Night following a major regional tour of her all-femme variety night Pompuan, and headlining Standup Asia for the Comedy Channel.

“A true artist of comedic timing, Kam has an extraordinary knack for stand-up – it’s a shame she was only here for two nights.” – The Music
