Comedy in the Time of COVID-19

Kavin Jay, comedian

23-Jun-20 15:00

Comedy in the Time of COVID-19

From podcasts to online cooking demos to a digital comedy album, Malaysian comedian and self-professed grumpy person Kavin Jay has been using the past few months to explore different ways to use the digital space for comedy - but he is also the first to admit, nothing beats doing it live. We catch up with Kavin to talk about his recent projects, the state of comedy in Malaysia, and reimagining what stand-up comedy is in the age of COVID-19 and physical distancing.
