You Stupid Or What?!

Heads up! The doctor is in the house! Considered one of Malaysia’s upcoming comedy superstars, Dr Jason Leong is a firm believer in the adage that laughter is the best medicine. After leaving his day job at a public hospital two years ago, he started to pursue his real passion - stand-up comedy, promising to devote himself to helping others by healing sadness through humour.

Inspired by Chris Rock and Ricky Gervais, Leong bases most of his hilarious gags on his childhood and his own experiences as a doctor, bringing to the stage a mix of observational comics and medical gags that may be just the cure you need.
