Kumar

Arguably Singapore’s most famous gay icon and leading comic, Kumar made his name as a drag queen comedian back in the early 1990′s at the now defunct Boom Boom Room. Having spent nearly two decades and counting in the entertainment industry, Kumar has amassed a string of television, stage, and film credits.

In a time when few dared to speak about queer issues or politics, he cracked the most outrageous jokes about sex, race and government, in between sets of lip-syncing, traditional Indian dance routines and hunky go-go boys. Until this day, Kumar pushes the boundaries of his shows by making fun of things that are taboo in Singapore.

Today, Kumar is undoubtedly one of most sought after comedians in Singapore. He is extremely popular with the Singapore audience as they delight in his humour about their policies, sex lives and racial quirks. He gets away with pushing boundaries without the authorities having to step in, whilst still remaining entertaining.
