Berita Harian and Singapore Writers Festival join hands to present the third edition of Malam Sastera (Literary Night) with a special focus on comedy. Expect a two-hour variety show featuring the who’s who of the Malay literary scene as well as artistes from the arts and entertainment circle, ranging from poets and theatre practitioners to comedians and pantun masters. They will perform various kinds of lawak (comedy acts) that will have the audience in stitches. A highlight will be the battle between two pantun masters—GT Lye and M Saffri A Manaf—who will trade epigrammatic stanzas. The stellar lineup includes actress-radio presenter Junaidah Eksan, veteran TV personality Norsiah Hamid as well as comedian-actors Ariff Isa and Zainal Ihim.

This session is co-presented with Berita Harian and is in Malay.
