Comedian. Columnist. Ice-cream flavour.
Kuah Jenhan is a highly sought-after entertainer, having performed for intimate groups of ONE (weird) to crowds of 8,000 people (awesome). Jenhan has performed at sold-out shows for paying audiences and corporate events alike in Malaysia, Australia, Hong Kong and Singapore. These performances also include his last five one-hour shows and a month-long showcase at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival in 2015. His show, 'Like This Like Dad' picked up a nomination for Best Comedy at the Perth Fringe World 2016. His latest show, 'Perfect Stranger' picked up 4 out of 5 stars from the Herald Sun in 2017 and he is set to return to the Melbourne International Comedy Festival in 2018.
Going beyond stand-up, Jenhan is also known for assuming different comedic roles and alter egos from time to time.
Jenhan is also a columnist with Esquire magazine, a script-writer for TV, feature films, and the performing arts. He recently also wrote and directed advertisements for Smirnoff Ice Malaysia and Uniqlo. A master at multitasking – he is currently working on his international tour and sixth one-hour show slated for 2018 while simultaneously tending to his cat and making speeling errors.
