FEBRUARY IS A HOOT WITH THE #CRAZYFUNNYASIANS OF COMEDY CENTRAL

Check out the funniest Asians in sketches, dramas, sitcoms and docuseries

 SINGAPORE, 7 February 2019 - Comedy Central is welcoming a hilarious February with the spotlight on the craziest and funniest Asians in sketches, dramas, sitcoms and even docuseries! Break out the popcorn and stay tuned for not one, not two, but three new shows and a whole new season of The Family Law, as #crazyfunnyasians bring down the house.

First up, Hasan Minhaj’s Goatface Special makes an appearance. The special one-hour sketch will leave you in stitches as Goatface (Hasan Minhaj, Asif Ali, Fahim Anwar and Aristotle Athiras) brings you on a journey that involves deranged mascots. Watch as Goatface discusses topics from sneaker hype to over-the-top ’90s R&B lyricism, tackling the unique trials and tribulations of being born of colour in America. In this special, be prepared to laugh at some culturally specific humour about identity and race that is just downright funny!

Ken Jeong aka Dr. Ken, a brilliant physician with no bedside manners, then takes centrestage! Watch Dr. Ken go crazy as he attempts to be a good doctor, husband and father to his two kids. Be prepared to laugh as you watch his efforts hilariously backfire on him and the people around him in a comedic fashion. Psst… view Dr. Ken on the Comedy Central Play app[1] first on 11 February, before it goes on air a week after.

Next, we will also be presenting a whole new season of the popular drama The Family Law. In this show, laugh along to the Law family as we see each of the family members deal with hilarious situations revolving around love, romance, the coming of age and sexuality. With a family like the Laws, there’s bound to be hilarity and horror for these misadventures in equal measure!

Lastly, top your weeknights with Just Another Immigrant: Romesh Ranganathan. Join Romesh, a popular stand-up comedian from the UK, as he deals with the obstacles of making it in today’s racially charged America in this comedic docusery. Following the true-life adventures of how Romesh uprooted his family and immigrated to America, you are sure to be in a laughing fit from Romesh’s hilarious antics. Just Another Immigrant: Romesh Ranganathan will be available first on the Comedy Central Play app on 11 February, before going on air a week after.

Hasan Minhaj’s Goatface Special will premiere on 9 February, Saturday at 8:00PM (WIB, TH), 9:00PM (SG, MAL, PH, TW, HK).
