Be Entertained By ‘Kumar Unmasked’, The Local Comedian’s Live Show At The Sands Theatre

Live shows are officially back in full swing, and what better way to ease us into this “new normal” than an epic comedy night by local comedian Kumar? We could definitely do with the laughs, and Kumar is ready to bring the house down this September, with quick wit and irreverent quips on everyday life — face masks, social distancing, pandemic-induced lockdowns included.

How Kumar Turns Pain Into Power

As comedy powerhouse Kumar takes the world by storm with his Kumarsutra Greatest Hits World Tour, Augustman steals a moment with the stand-up comic for an exclusive heart-to-heart and uncovers an inspiring story of true mettle, forged in the fire of rape and rough upbringing, and the positive attitude to turn pain into power, wisdom and an outstanding career in spreading laughter.

‘I am a stand-up comedian who dresses in drag’

We are in Kumar’s dressing area. The Straits Times video team is fussing with equipment, as they do. The idea today is that I talk to the comedian about his 30 years in show business as he gets made up and dons a dress. To witness a transformation as he reflects on his legacy.
