Malaysian comedian judged world’s funniest person E-mail

Malaysian stand-up comedy king Harith Iskander, 50, was judged the world’s funniest person in a contest held in Helsinki, Finland, in December.

Harith, who was announced the champion of The Laugh Factory’s “Funniest Person in the World” 2016 competition, joked his way ahead of four other contenders: Alex Calleja from the Philippines, Katerina Vrana from Greece, Mino Van Nassau from India and David Kilimnick from Israel.

As the winner, Harith bagged US$100,000 and a comedy tour in the US, while runner-up Calleja took home US$10,000. Vrana in third place received US$5,000.

In a Facebook post, Harith, who is referred to as the Godfather of Malaysian stand-up comedy, said he was “so excited and thrilled” to win the competition.
