Stand-Up Comedian, Comedian, Poet
Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
Juliana Heng is the founder of I Laugh KL Comedy Show, one of the founding members of Parti Komedi Rakyat (PKR) and has been doing stand-up comedy since September 2017. She strives to be a comedian who gets real, talking about issues considered taboo in the Asian society. Juliana’s role models in comedy are Hannah Gadsby, Tig Notaro & Tim Minchin.
On the other hand, Juliana also does spoken word. She felt that this is her chance to be real with herself & say things that people may not want to hear but needs to hear. Spoken word is Juliana’s alter ego to stand-up comedy, a sanctuary for her to address issues without the need to be funny.
Through various ways of telling her story, be it comedy, storytelling or spoken word, Juliana found herself & the strength to move on in life!
