Jinx Yeo A+ Underachiever (Singapore)

Jinx Yeo A+ Underachiever (SGP)

As seen on ABC TV’s Comedy Up Late and Comedy Central Asia award-winning Singaporean comedian Jinx Yeo makes his solo debut at Melbourne International Comedy Festival.

Jinx Yeo's hard-hitting punchlines, effortless delivery, and clever material won him 1st Runner Up at the Hong Kong International Comedy Festival (2011) and Finalist in the America Meet World Global Comedy Competition (2014).

In A+ Underachiever, Jinx reveals his clumsy attempts to juggle Asian parental expectations with his unorthodox personal aspirations... and the comedy-drama that ensues when he inevitably drops a few balls.

Having entertained sold-out crowds in 21 countries over three continents, Jinx’s comedy is widely relatable – not just to Asians, but to audiences of other backgrounds and ethnicities as well.

Birthed from intercourse between his strict conservative Asian upbringing, and anti-authoritarian Hippie influences from studying in America, Jinx’s side-splitting stories, sharp observations and bewildering imagination leaves audiences in stitches.

Enjoy huge belly-laughs with this hilarious hour of stand-up comedy from Singapore’s most international comedian.
