Happy New Year to you all and happy birthday to us, The Comedy Club Cambodia, as we celebrate our fifth anniversary! We are now old enough to be taken seriously, but we really don’t want that…
To help put an indelible mark on our major milestone we are organizing a truly spectacular comedy tour of Cambodia. Headlining our shows in Phnom Penh, Sihanoukville, Kampot and Siem Reap this month is the superstar British comic GINA YASHERE!
Gina will be joined by American-Filipino magicomedian Justin Rivera, as well as other top acts from the Cambodian scene.
Here is the list of tour dates around Cambodia:
Saturday 21 January - Show Box (Phnom Penh)
Tuesday 24 January - Monkey Republic (Sihanoukville)
Thursday 26 January - Ecran Cinema (Kampot)
Friday 27 Janaury - 3 Mangos (Phnom Penh)
Saturday 28 January - The Harbour (Siem Reap)
Gina was born and raised in London of Nigerian parents.
A former elevator engineer for Otis, she turned her skills to stand up over 20 years ago and has remained at the top of her game ever since.
Gina has made numerous appearances on hit TV shows such as Live At The Apollo and Mock The Week, as well as creating and performing popular comedic characters on The Lenny Henry Show.
She broke onto the American comedy scene with her appearances on Last Comic Standing (NBC), where she made it to the final 10, and then never went home!
Gina went on to be named one of the top 10 rising talents by the Hollywood Reporter.
She is also known in the US for being the only British comedian to ever appear on the iconic Def Comedy Jam, as well as for her regular, hilarious skits on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno as Madame Yashere, The Surly Psychic. Other screen appearances include The Nightly Show on Comedy Central, and her one-hour stand up special on Showtime, Skinny B*tch.
Gina is not just a highly sought after comedian in Europe, the US and Australia, but she has performed for sold-out crowds in Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia, Hong Kong and more.
It’s a wonder she found the time to pick up her fourth award in a row for “Best Comedian” at the recent Black Entertainment & Comedy Awards in the UK.
Her third stand up special, Gina Yashere: Ticking Boxes, was filmed at the 02 Academy in Brixton, London, in front of over 2,000 of her fans.
Gina has also performed numerous times at the prestigious Just For Laughs Comedy Festivals in Montreal and Toronto.
Feature film appearances include Kiss Kiss Bang Bang and Mr. In-Between, and she made a West-End stage appearance in The Vagina Monologues.
Gina currently resides in New York and tours non-stop around the world.
