CASE STUDY

Comedy Central Stand Up Asia

THE REQUEST

A new season.
Push the limits.

Comedy Central is a platform that always pushes the limits. Over lunch, CC’s EP showed me the deck for the new season, “Unstaged and Unhinged”. Interweave the standup comedians with Singapore’s funny boys, Ben & Hirzi. This is going to be fun..

THE CHALLENGE

This is gonna
be tight

6x episodes, 6x international stand-up comedians, 2x digital influencers with 6x comedy sketches, complex wardrobe, make-up and set design for all the sketches, a custom stage and audience for the stand-up, a location that was still under construction and a shooting schedule of 5 days with zero contingency. This is gonna be tight and risky.

THE EXECUTION

The A-list of crews

Over the months leading up to the mega week, scripts were refined, sets designed and creative talent sourced from Australia to Malaysia. Our Production Manager, Jyuneen managed to secure the A-List of crew’s with credits that include “Serangoon” “Filthy rich Asians” “Amazing Race Australia” “Asia’s Next Top Model”. No corners were cut. A hand picked, tightly knit team of the region’s best creatives was our recipe for pulling off the impossible.
