Synopsis

More than just a comedy festival, AICF 2019 aims to be the dynamic force to further foster social cohesion and to get a better grasp of different cultures - highlighting the value of how different races in Singapore coexist in harmony.

Proven by the success of the same festival two years ago, AICF has been consistent in supporting talents and bringing the art of comedy to as many patrons as possible; aiming to stimulate a lifelong understanding and appreciation of the value of comedy while celebrating individuality, creativity, respect, and inclusiveness.

Apart from integrating Singapore's racial diversity, AICF also works towards enhancing Singapore's international profile as a vibrant hub not only to live in and work at but also to have fun and appreciate the simple acts that would distance us from the distressing aspects in life. After all, one of the best feelings in the world is a deep-rooted belly laugh - no matter what age, gender, race, and religion one may have, comedy, just like music, is a universal language meant to bring people together.

With a steadfast vision of bringing people together through live comedy, LA Comedy Live is proud to unveil Asian International Comedy Festival 2019! To be held over three days from September 13 to 15, 2019, AICF will feature internationally acclaimed comedians from different parts of the world to share their love and passion for making people laugh!

Kicking off this year's festival are India's sharpest minds in comedy - Nishant Tanwar and Neville Shah - who will set out a brilliant entertainment feast on September 13, 2019, Friday, at the Nexus Auditorium!

Gracing the festival this year is India's zany comic - Sorabh Pant - who will be performing on September 14, 2019, Saturday, at the Nexus Auditorium!
