Sneaks Co-host

Acknowldeged as the ‘Godfather’ of Stand Up Comedy of Malaysia Harith Iskander was awarded “ASIA’S BEST STAND-UP COMEDIAN AWARD” by TOP 10 of ASIA AWARD 2014.

Show More
Since 1990 Harith has performed ‘live’ at hundreds (if not thousands) or shows and entertained thousands (if not millions?) of people with his unique and original material. His comedy performance is in great demand and any company function is never complete without Harith inevitably bringing the house down with his routine.
In October 2014 Harith became the first Malaysian Stand Up Comedian to hold a show in a stadium - ‘Harith Iskander’s LAUGH MALAYSIA’ saw 9000 people fill up the Stadium Putra in Bukit Jalil and set a record of sorts in the local stand up comedy scene by being the biggest show ever in the history of stand up comedy in Malaysia. So far.
Just prior to that Harith embarked on a six-nation comedy tour titled “The Godfather of Malaysian Stand Up Comedy International Tour” where he performed to audiences in India (Chennai/New Delhi), Korea (Seoul), Hong Kong, Singapore, Australia (Perth) and Indonesia (Jakarta).
This was not his first time to Australia though because in 2012 Harith headlined the “BEST OF MALAYSIA COMEDY TOUR” which covered shows at both the Brisbane and Melbourne Comedy Festival as well as shows in Sydney.
