When The Show Can’t Go On, We Must Know Why

When The Show Can’t Go On, We Must Know Why

Singaporean comedian Sharul Channa’s latest performance in Malaysia would’ve been on 18th May, but it was unfortunately cancelled after her work visa was cancelled by the Ministry of Communications just two days before the event. This comes after several police reports were made of a clip of a show from 2018, which allegedly touched on 3R - race, religion, and royalty - issues. This incident has raised much concern among the local arts and comedy scene because of the precedent it could set and the implications it could have for local and foreign artists. Joining me on the show today to delve into that as well as what procedures should be in place to deal with situations like this, is Arief Hamizan, committee member of ReformARTsi.
