Stand-up comedy

VTL comedy - live in Singapore

Fans of stand-up comedy can look forward to a new production featuring Singaporean comedians Sharul Channa and Jinx Yeo and their Malaysian counterparts Kuah Jenhan, Keren Bala Devan, Prakash Daniel and Shamaine Othman.

Channa, 35, spearheaded the show to fire up the scene after the Covid-19 lull.

"Audiences will get a chance to see some healthy bantering between Singaporean and Malaysian comedians, along with their personal perspectives of world news in the past two years," she says.

The plan, she adds, is to invite more stand-up comedians from countries such as India, Australia and the Philippines to take part in future instalments of VTL Comedy here.

Growth: drawings and sculptures by Jason Lim

This exhibition by Singapore ceramicist Jason Lim gathers drawings from his series Under The Shadow Of The Banyan Tree (2016 to 2017), as well as ceramic sculptures from his series Growth (2022), which experiments with glazes on clay bodies.

Lim, 55, says: "There is a saying that 'nothing grows under the banyan tree'. The Growth series provides a contrast to the drawings with three-dimensionality, floral blossoms, and crystal growth in the glaze and colours."
