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). In the last seven years, 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 four solo 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 and is set to play 22 shows at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival in 2016.
His brand of humour and performance ethics has garnered the respect and accolades of some of the most experienced comics around. Tom Rhodes, Ronny Chieng, Nick Cody, to drop some names. 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 fifth one hour show slated for 2016, while simultaneously tending to his cat and making speeling errors.
