We had great fun enjoying hilarious acts by Benjamin Quinlan brutally dissecting how ridiculous sometimes Chinese could be! We laughed throughout the entire act and can't wait to attend the Comedy Festival in November for the finals!

I went on a Saturday evening for an All-Stars show, and it was sparsely attended - how unfortunate! A fun night of comedy, with 6 comedians. It is located in the SoHo part of Hong Kong Island - you have to take the Mid-Level Escalators...More

with famous skyscrapers dominating the skyline. The
area widely known as Central is the major financial
hub and entertainment district, which truly lives up
to the saying, “work hard, play hard.” Bars stay open
