About Phoon Chi Ho’s comedian function

Phoon Chi Ho is a Malaysian stand up comedian, actor and scriptwriter. A product of Kuala Lumpur’s underground comedy scene, his big break came when local comedy wizard Douglas Lim took him (and another dude) under his wing to form the Malaysian Association of Chinese Comedians. Ever since then, his incursions into the world of comedy have seen him become one of the most sought-after comedians at corporate events and have allowed him to share the stage with comedy greats like Harith Iskander, Afdlin Shauki, Paul Ogata, Gina Yashere and many more.

Comedy also opened up different avenues for him. As an actor, Chi Ho held starring roles in numerous TV commercials, feature roles in two local sitcoms – Small Mission Enterprise and Cakap Melayulah, supporting roles in two big-budgeted musicals – Supermokh and Baik Punya Cilok, as well as a leading role in the local production of the world’s longest running play, Shear Madness Kuala Lumpur. As a scriptwriter, he has penned scripts for two popular local sitcoms – Small Mission Enterprise and Oh My English! Recently, upon discovering Google Translate, Chi Ho performed in Bahasa Malaysia for the very first time and was lucky enough to headline Astro Warna‘s B. Malaysia stand up comedy TV show – Komediri (ch132)twice!

In 2016, he formed his own company – Laugh Labs Entertainment SB, and is working with Indi Nadarajah of Comedy Court to bring more custom-made sketches to corporate events.

 

“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.”

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.
