The Square by Jaya One Launches 'Late Night Laughs' Campaign

Life is better when you're laughing. Laughter helps you reduce stress and see things from a better perspective. That being said, PJ Live Arts and Goodtimes Ticketing, The Square by Jaya One have collaborated to present the 12-month ‘Late Night Laughs’ campaign with over 12 outstanding comics in the local industry as well as from all around the world to put on a series of comedy night shows. Recognizing comics as craftspeople, the campaign aims to bring to light comedians and comedy as a form of artistic expression with therapeutic effects to the wider community.

Taking place in PJ Live Arts Theatre the multi-layered campaign promises all-inclusive, family-friendly programming with hopes to focus and celebrate creative crafts in the realm of comedy. Patrons can expect fine-tooled hilarity converged with creative interaction between the comics and the audience throughout the shows, reflecting PJ Live Arts’ reputation in producing quality productions in the local marketplace.

‘Late Night Laughs’ is an initiative by The Square as part of the overall ‘Late Night’ campaign, which comprises #LateNightDining, #LateNightLive (music entertainment) and #LateNightLaughs – in collaboration with PJ Live Arts, the venue and production host; and Goodtimes Ticketing, the chosen ticketing agent and events partner. This overarching direction by The Square supports the promotion of Malaysian arts, culture, and entertainment communities, paving a way for the space to become a prime comedy hub in the city.

The first ‘Late Night Laughs’ show is set to premiere on 14 March 2020 (Saturday), 8 pm - 9.30 pm named Phoon Chi Ho is Creepy Again by Malaysia’s veteran stand-up comic Phoon Chi Ho. After the success of his first-ever solo tour Creepy, Chi Ho will continue to serve the audience with a compilation of his favorite as well as his most recent stories including fatherhood and his comedy career. 

The second show is slated for 4 April 2020 (Saturday), 8 pm - 10 pm by India’s best-established quartet Praveen Kumar, Jagan Krishnan, Mervyn Rozario, Manoj Prabakar as part of their tour to international cities including Singapore and Dubai. Titled Academy Awards, this is a first of its kind Tamil show where they celebrate the below-average films in an above-average fashion.

Also on the bill as the third show will be an all-Malay stand-up comedy special Super Sabah by one of Malaysia’s up-and-coming yet promising comedians – Mad Sabah, who will unfold the differences between life in metropolitan Kuala Lumpur and interior Sabah, taking audience down his memory lane of growing up, the highs, the lows, and how much he enjoyed life with very little, if not, nothing all. Mad’s show is slated for 18 April 2020 (Saturday), 8 pm - 9.30 pm.
Expect more acts to be added to the ‘Late Night Laughs’ bill in the weeks to come which includes acts from the US, the UK, Australia, and South Africa.

For the first time ever, the campaign ties up with restaurant tenant, Tommy Thongchai – a Thai fusion gastrobar in The Square – with a 10% discount on customer’s bill when visitors purchase a ticket to any show at PJ Live Arts on ticketing platform Visitors will only need to present their ticket to restaurant staff to enjoy the promotion on a one-off basis. Ticket holders can also enjoy pre and post-show dining discounts at Three Stooges Bistro which is also within close proximity to PJ Live Arts. This initiative is part of the collective ‘Late Night’ offerings by The Square to provide customers with late-night dining and leisure options in a bustling commercial marketplace.
