Melbourne International Comedy Festival proudly presents

Douglas Lim This Is Awkward (Malaysia)

In 2018, Douglas Lim brought his show This is Nice to Melbourne, with candid observations and commentary that connected with Australians and Malaysians alike. He spoke honestly about Malaysia’s struggle against an arrogant and corrupt government and the dreaded feeling that it was not going to change. It was a solid hour of lamentations wrapped in humour, criticisms camouflaged in comedy. Then he went home. Malaysia had it's 14th General Elections... and changed the government for the first time since independence. So yeah... This is Awkward.

Alongside hit stand-up shows in South-East Asia and Australia, Douglas starred in the long-running hit sitcom Kopitiam and, in 2018, made his New York Off-Broadway debut in Thicker Than Water. Don’t miss the brand-new hour from the ‘King of Malaysian Comedy’!
