Secrets From Your Favourite Local Standup Comedians Anything Goes

Dream Academy’s Happy Ever Laughter is back for the third time, with this edition promising to be the most LOL-worthy one yet! 

Who doesn’t love a good laugh? The kind where you’re slapping your thighs and your belly cramps up from laughing so hard? I know I do. After all, in our stressful, hyper-productive society, we could all use with a bit more laughter in our lives. Hossan Leong, who will be directing Happy Ever Laughter, says, “The world today has literally gone mad! It’s sick, sad, and depressing. We want to bring lots of bright sunshine, laughter, and happiness to the audience.”

This year’s comedic lineup includes familiar faces such as Siti Khalijah, Sebastian Tan (aka Broadway Beng), Fakkah Fuzz, and Rishi Budhrani, as well as new faces to the standup comedy scene like Suhaimi Yusof, Patricia Mok, and Dee Kosh. With such a rojak mix of comedians, you can be sure no comedic stone will be left unturned. From misunderstood Chindians and Malays who would not do overtime to the irony of making mini Singaporeans, it will be an evening of much laughter and merriment.

After all the laughter has died down though, we were curious to find out if our favourite comedians were as funny off-stage as they are on. We recently grilled them on the one thing most people don’t know about them. Here’s what they had to say:


“I like to hum when I pee.” – Rishi Budhrani

"Honestly? I find showering,  peeing,  and pooping a chore." - Judee Tan

“Honestly? I find showering, peeing, and pooping a chore.” – Judee Tan

"I shave my armpits." - Hossan Leong

“I shave my armpits.” – Hossan Leong

"Not many people know this,  but I am allergic to popcorn." - Dee Kosh

“Not many people know this, but I am allergic to popcorn.” – Dee Kosh

"It's embarrassing but I recently found out that tie-dye is not THAI-dye ... like from Thailand. D'oh!" - Sebastian Tan

“It’s embarrassing but I recently found out that tie-dye is not THAI-dye … like from Thailand.” – Sebastian Tan

For as long as she can remember, Vanessa has always wanted to escape to a place where no one knows her. But because that’s not always possible, she often retreats into the world of books and pop culture. When she does get to travel, she prefers going off the beaten track and back to nature. Some of her best memories include napping in a treehouse in Laos and cycling across padi fields in Bali.

    stellar line up! but #TeamJudeeTan all the way! (can’t get enough of her since Cheena vs. Meena!)

  2. I like Dee Kosh as I find his YouTube videos really funny and he has no qualms sharing his personal opinions and making fun of himself sometimes.

  3. My favourite comedian has got to be Fuzz! I’ve watched all his videos on Youtube and been to his shows. I want to be able to go for this one as well! Thanks, Go Away.

    My favourite is Sebastian Tan (aka Broadway Beng). I love how he gives a touch of Hokkien to the local English Arts Scene, making it truly Singaporean, and his vocals is also ‘Tok Gong’!
