Top 10 Asia have invited Papa CJ to this year’s Top 100 Corporate Ball to receive the award of Top Stand Up in Asia. The 2013 Ball saw the presence of some 1,000 distinguished CEOs, business owners, celebrities and personalities from across Malaysia and Asia, making the glamorous and prestigious occasion a memorable one.
The Top 10 of Asia is an initiative to showcase Asia’s excellence in all its diversity: arts, literature, cultures, industries, personalities, lifestyles, innovations, politics, governments, sports and so on in the form of an English-language magazine. The initiative brings to the readers of the publication beautiful, perhaps rare, insights into Asia’s excellence through the interviews conducted, articles, events and television programmes.

A new Jim Jefferies comedy special has just gone live on Netflix! Watch the trailer below.
Smart, crude, and in-your-face, Australian comic/actor/equal-opportunity-offender Jim Jefferies is not for the faint of heart. Whether he is lampooning gun control, auditioning disabled actors, or over-sharing sexual experiences, the FXX “Legit” star proves nothing is out of bounds and even less, off limits. Filmed during the Boston run of his recent stand up tour, Netflix and Jim Jefferies go BARE from August 29th.
Bestival’s world of wonder grows ever wilder as a new kind of castaway – our very own insane clown posse – washes ashore to join the Desert Island Disco. Ramping up the side-splitting action in the splendid Spiegeltent each day between noon and 6pm, we’ll have a cavalcade of comedians, put together by our crack comic squad Get Comedy, that’s guaranteed to make you do an actual LOL.
With only 5 days to go until everything kicks off, be sure to grab your tickets for Bestival NOW: CLICK HERE TO BUY!
Rob da Bank says: “There’s always so much to do at Bestival, sometimes even I don’t know which way to turn, but one thing you should definitely make time to check out is the comedy in the Spiegeltent. The line-up this year is top-notch with Nina Conti, Abandoman, young whippersnapper Daniel Sloss and our old mate Andrew Maxwell being just a few highlights from a line-up that includes some of the maddest funny people around”.
GetComedy are delighted to announce Alex Edelman has only gone and WON the flipping thing!
The charming Bostonian has been named Best Newcomer at the Foster’s Comedy Awards in Edinburgh this evening and we’re stupidly happy for him. The biggest congratulations to him! Now, let’s go celebrate!!!
Becoming emotional as he accepted his award, Edelman said: ‘I didn’t write a speech because I didn’t think I was going to win. I moved over in May because every year a couple of sacrificial Americans come over and get eaten up by the festival. I didn’t want to be one of them.’
‘I feel there has been a huge error made as there are so many talented comic on this list.’ – Chortle
Alex Edelman certainly earned his newcomer nod with a laidback, technically adroit show, even if I felt his technique currently outpaces the significance of what he’s got to say. But he’s effortlessly funny, and I’m looking forward to watching his work develop. – The Guardian
