Jinx Yeo is an award-winning Singaporean comedian who was nominated “Best Comedy” at the Fringe World Awards 2018. His 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).
Jinx’s TV appearances include Comedy Central Asia (where he was “Comedian of the Month” for June 2015)… Channel 5’s “Ok Chope”… as well as ABCTV’s “Comedy Up Late” (recorded at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival 2017).
Birthed from intercourse between his strict conservative Asian upbringing, and anti-authoritarian Hippie influences from studying in America… Jinx’s comedy offers a fresh perspective that hasn’t been covered by many comedians, partly because Singaporeans have often been stereotyped as humourless and regimented people.
Having entertained sold-out crowds in 16 countries (such as Australia, China, New Zealand, India, UK, and even Germany) over 3 continents… Jinx’s comedy is based on observations and experiences that are widely relatable – not just to Asians, but to audiences of other backgrounds and ethnicities as well.
Jinx has a diverse arsenal of hilarious and original material, that enables him to adapt his performances to a wide range of audiences – young or old, foreigners or locals, club gigs or corporate shows. His side-splitting stories, sharp observations, and bewildering imagination leaves audiences in stitches.
Jinx Yeo will be touring his NEW 2018 stand-up comedy show “Absurdly Asian” in various international cities. Enjoy huge belly laughs with this new stand-up comedy hour – from one of Asia’s funniest comedians.
