This week I get to remind you yet again why living in Pattaya is about the coolest thing in the world… Friday May 13th you get to take a break from your normal pub session:
Join us all at Lion Pub for a long night filled with laughter and as many beers as you can possibly drink (we’ll get you started since you get 2 free beers with your entrance)
Here’s a quick sneak peak video of the awesome show you are about to see
Paul Ogata Headliner
“This crazy dude is well worth seeing.” – Monterey County Weekly
“Makes you laugh while making you think.” – Pacific Daily News
Paul’s victory propelled him to numerous television appearances including The Late Late Show, Comedy Central’s Live at Gotham, Comics Unleashed and his show-stealing set on Showtime’s groundbreaking “Pacific Rim Comedy.” Paul was also tapped to co-star along with various adult film stars in the cult fave motion picture, “Porndogs.”
Aidan Killian Featured Stand Up Comedian
He has been compared to Tommy Tiernan, Russell Brand and an “Irish Mark Thomas, but without the cosiness” by UK’s main comedy reviewers, Chortle. Not only was he the only Irish comedian in 2014 to get a 4-star review from Chortle but in 2015 he, once again, received a prestigious 4-star review from Chortle (Only two Irish acts achieved this in 2015… the other being RTE’s Al Porter).

About Bangkok Hilarious, Paul Ogata & Aidan Killian
Bangkok Hilarious is back in Pattaya for a comedy encore with legendary comedian Paul Ogata on his Thailand debut and laughter messiah Aidan Killian on his Asian Tour.
Paul Ogata is an award-winning comedian, part-time porn star and quite possibly America’s leading comedy export.
The Hawaii-born Ogata left his island home for Los Angeles in 2006 after a successful career as a top-rated morning radio personality. Shortly thereafter, Paul won the prestigious 32nd Annual San Francisco International Comedy Competition, putting him in an exclusive club with the likes of Dana Carvey, Sinbad, Doug Stanhope and other comedy greats.
On stage, Paul Ogata lays bare his insecurities, recounts his marital foibles and hammers on world events. Paul’s show is an edgy, often-improvised, always-hilarious wild ride through the corners of his mind. Buckle up and come along for the ride!
Here’s what people are saying:
About the feature comedian Aidan Killian
Aidan Killian is a uniquely spirited and passionate comedian with a rakish charm. Aidan’s impassioned and hilarious rants expose the hypocrisy and injustice in this world and leave the audience in a state of joy.
A truly global act, Aidan has performed shows all over the world; A peace festival in the Middle East, Off Broadway in New York, throughout theatres and comedy clubs in the UK, and Asia, and he is the only comedian to do a sitting-room tour of Ireland.
His show ‘Take the Red Pill’ made light of the global financial crisis, drawn from his personal experiences as an investment banker and was a hit in New York after previously playing to sold out crowds at The Edinburgh Fringe Festival and Leicester Square.
Not one to shy away from existential depth within his shows, he took on religion with ‘Jesus Versus Buddha’, receiving top ratings in reviews at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, then touring 9 countries in Asia. His latest show about whistleblowers received 4-Star and 5-Star reviews at the largest comedy festival in the world, the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Bunbury Magazine gave him a 5-Star review and wrote “Masterclass in satire.”
He has made appearances on BBC Newsnight, RTE, 98 fm, 4fm, Spin fm, Vodafone Comedy Festival and he once left the stage at Electric Picnic, Ireland’s largest festival, to perform a giant group hug.
Ok, so here’s the deal with stand-up comedy in Thailand: The name to know Bangkok Hilarious
What you need to know about stand up comedy in Bangkok Thailand
Bangkok Hilarious is Thailand’s longest running English comedy collective, it was founded by two of my funniest friends Leandro Soares and Graham Wooding. Through the years they have managed to regularly set up some of the top comedy-shows and open mic nights Bangkok could offer, some of the best weekends out in town started by sharing a few drinks and laughs at their shows.
Bangkok Hilarious vision for the future stand-up comedy in the land of smiles
I guess is also a good time to explain the awesome plans they guys at Bangkok Hilarious have for comedy in our region… I figured since I’m a digital marketer and web-designer in Pattaya, I would give them a hand spreading their message around, because mind you…
Ever since it’s inception, Bangkok Hilarious has had one clear goal in mind: to make Bangkok the ASEAN hub for stand-up comedy.
Stand up comedy in Thailand:
Going with the times, Bangkok Hilarious has managed to establish itself as favorite with expats and Thais alike. With more than 60 shows under their belt, they are now expanding around Thailand and beyond ( including some international performances in Japan and Hong Kong).
Still, there’s a lot of work to do at home before we can consider comedy as an established industry, which brings me to my next point…
