The Rise of the Apeks

If you happened to watch the recent KIA commercials directed by funnyman Douglas Lim and enjoyed them as much as the average Malaysian, you  might, just might, like his latest venture – Planet of the Apeks.

Part of the much talked about comedy troupe – Malaysian Association of Chinese Comedians – Planet of the Apeks features other comedic gems besides Lim.  Sharing the stage with the seasoned comedian are Kuah Jenhan, Phoon Chi Ho and Dr. Jason (real doctor, not a fictional one like Dr House or Dr Phil).

Performed in English, Planet of the Apeks is a through-and-through Malaysian stand-up comedy show. Expect hilariously acute observations, personal anecdotes, exaggerated theories and ridiculous song parodies, which the four Apeks are said to deliver with a heavy dose of Apek-ness.

Oh, if you are wondering what is an Apek, apek loosely translates to ‘uncle’ in Chinese and is used when addressing older men in Malaysia, especially Chinese men. So, if you are still in the CNY mood and are what the society deems as a “matured” human being, why not come get a dose of the Apeks this February.
