Kavin Jay – Comedians, Malaysia’s REAL Journalists
Kavin Jay is one of Malaysia’s funniest men, recognised as such by the Netflix special he was invited to record in 2018, titled ‘Everybody Calm Down’.
He is also one of Malaysia’s most original and ‘real’ comedians, driven to his art by a very unique set of circumstances.
Here, he talks to Chuang about his journey to comedy, evolving along the way to become a true storyteller, much akin to a journalist, though often braver – and definitely funnier.
