About the speaker

Kavin Jay is one of South East Asia’s most sought-after comedians; an integral part of the comedy revolution in Malaysia, he’s a rapid-fire, grumpy, joke telling machine. He may be grouchy but he does it with such panache that you can’t help but laugh. His intense sense of humor has tickled ribs and charmed audiences of all shapes and backgrounds. A traveling comic as well, Kavin has performed in Singapore, India, Hong Kong, Australia, and the United Kingdom just to name a few!

Kavin Jay is politically incorrect, intense and shows a warped sense of love, life, and liver. Being Malaysian Indian, Kavin Jay has lived life with a severe disability and was always destined to be angry and easily irritated. He was voted Malaysia’s grumpiest comedian because he complains about everything so that you don’t have to. You’re welcome!

Additional details

Comedian, Actor and writer Kavin Jay is probably the best comedian in Asia right now. Getting to where he is did not come easily and being faced with challenges only strengthened his resolve to go farther with his chosen career of stand-up comedy. Having lived with disabilities for many years, Kavin brings a refreshingly honest view and will share his inspiring journey and how he has managed to overcome his challenges and the stigma of society.

Kavin is at the heart of a vital shift currently happening in our creative society – and he is passionate about using comedy to encourage more discussion. When we can laugh about something, it loses its power to scare us and we realise we’re not alone.

In this talk, Kavin will dwell on his muses, his disabilities, his family, and most of all, his ability to look at things differently. His view that no one is BORN with a talent, rather it is bestowed upon those who care to nurture and learn wholeheartedly, may differ from what you have been taught all your life. Go through his journey in comedy for the past 13 years and how he came to be who he is today.
