KUCHING, July 20: Sabahan comic Mad Sabah, who Harith Iskandar has called “the funniest and most authentic comedian”, will be making a stop in La Promenade Mall here this July 29 for his ‘Ndak Logik — National Tour” stand-up comedy show.
Mad Sabah, whose real name is Achmed Rusli, said he cannot wait to perform his best jokes in Kuching, Sarawak.
“It’s my ‘greatest hits’ tour. I will be telling my best jokes from the past couple years for the final time. After this, I’ll work on new material.
“This tour is years of work. I can’t wait to perform in Kuching. It’s a wonderful time to tour,” he said.
Prior to the pandemic, Mad Sabah has been steadily rising in fame. His two prior tours—‘Crazy Poor Asian’ and ‘Super Sabah’—were sold out in Kuala Lumpur, Melaka, Johor and Sabah.
The Ndak Logik show will start at 8.30pm at La Promenade Mall’s conference hall on Level 5. Popular mall tenants, Zoro by Domus Group, NOMS and Black Bean Coffee & Tea, will offer special pre-show dinners from 6.30pm.
Zoro is serving a three-course set dinner, NOMS will provide free ala-carte upgrades to meals, while Black Bean will be doing discount and also serve beverages during the show.
After Mad Sabah, on September 3, La Promenade will also host Kavin Jay, the Malaysian comedian whose Netflix one-hour special “Everybody Calm Down!” was highly acclaimed.
Both Mad Sabah’s “Ndak Logik” and Kavin Jay’s “I Am Sorry I Shouted!” are their first shows since the pandemic.
La Promenade Mall digital marketing manager Sophia Ong expressed excitement to be hosting the first stand-up comedy shows in the lifestyle and community-focused mall.
“We are so excited to host Mad Sabah’s tour. It is high time for all of us to laugh together. Stand-up comedy is an amazing art form that is getting more and more popular, especially after Netflix.
“We’re also delighted Kavin’s bringing his tour to Kuching, specifically, to La Promenade. As we are putting his Kuching show together, Kavin’s already sold out multiple shows in KL and Penang,” she said in a statement today.
Tickets for Mad Sabah’s show are available now at ndaklogikkuching.peatix.com, while tickets for Kavin Jay’s show are up for sale at Black Bean starting July 21. Online purchases for Kavin Jay’s show will only be open after July 29.
