About Phoon Chi Ho’s comedian function


Phoon Chi Ho has built a reputation as one of the country’s top comedy performers, much sought after for corporate events. He is also a scriptwriter and a commercial actor.

One of the pioneers of Kuala Lumpur’s underground comedy scene, he is best known for being one part of Douglas Lim’s Malaysian Association of Chinese Comedians, and has shared the stage with comedy greats like Dara O’ Briain (by coincidence), Ed Byrne (also by coincidence), Harith Iskander and Afdlin Shauki, just to name a few.

On TV, he has appeared on Astro Warna’s Cakap Melayu Lah, Komediri (2 seasons) and was one of the first Asian comedians to be curated for Comedy Central Asia’s Stand Up, Asia! Soon, he’ll be on Astro’s Sedapnya Mulut! On the silver screen, he begged 
a supporting role, playing a ghost hunter, on Mamat Khalid’s Lari Hantu… Lari!

As a scriptwriter, he wrote for sitcoms Small Mission Enterprise 
(3 seasons), Oh My English! and, more recently, Club Mickey Mouse.

Outside of comedy, Chi Ho is one of the most well-known faces in advertising world having written, directed and acted in countless local as well as international commercials across all media platforms.



“Phoon Chi Ho is one of the most tenacious comedians I know. From college gigs to “2-audience member” club shows to sell-out MACC performances, Chi Ho has persevered and come out victorious (most of the time). He also has a good grasp of theater dynamics and logistics which makes him an integral part of a successful comedy show. The word on the street is that Chi Ho is a thinking man’s comedian. I disagree. His appeal in Malaysia would be too small if it were true.”

Douglas Lim, accomplished comedian, actor, singer and composer

Phoon(…) took only seconds to draw the first echoes of laughter when he poked fun about a locally-made car that many have criticised as a carbon copy of another company’s design.
