there is a lot you can do in April.
From jazz and comedy nights to filing your taxes, here are our top picks to enrich your month.
Celebrate the 5th Anniversary of Crackhouse Comedy Club
From now to Apr 30, don’t just attend shows by local and international comics, you can also take part in them. Try out your best (worst) jokes and puns at the open mic or level up at AIIA Improv Jam workshop
A good night where you jazz listen to music awaits with Mia Palencia, Dasha Logan, The Frankie Sixes and many other exquisite performers at No Black Tie this month. Fill your nights with rhythm and your bellies with food if you take the dinner and show package.
Sort out your taxes
It is tax season and there is no shame in having difficulty trying to get it right. Before the April 30 due date, you can attend the Business 101 : Tax for Freelancers #1 or the How To File Your Taxes 101 workshops to help you figure it out.
Catch a local comedian’s debut solo show
One of the pioneers of Kuala Lumpur’s underground comedy scene, local funnyman Phoon Chi Ho 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. PHOON CHI HO is CREEPY in KUALA LUMPUR – a stand-up comedy showcase is his first ever one hour solo special.
Witness spectacular storytelling through musical theatre
When Sylvia Graham, a British Foreign Correspondent, travels to Malaya, she is hoping to pen the article of her career, offering a fresh account on what the country’s fight for Independence will mean for the British Empire. Little does she know that she’s about to rewrite the plot of her own life, when she interviews Akbar, a prominent member of the rising anti-colonial Malaysian independence movement, Merdeka. Set to an original musical score, Malaya Relived: Merdeka, tells a story of freedom, fidelity and forbidden love.
Immerse yourself in the sights and sounds of Le French Festival
Organised by the Embassy of France and the Alliance Française in Malaysia, Le French Festival invites you to an evening of chamber music at « April In Paris » by KAMERATA or learn new dance moves at the festival’s Experimental Hip Hop Workshop by Art Move Concept.
