Comedian Profile : Kumar
Kumarason Chinnadurai (born 10 August 1968) or popularly known as Kumar, is a Singaporean Indian who has proven to be a multifaceted performer – having spent nearly three decades entertaining millions as a comedian, TV host, actor, dancer and director. In September of 2011, Kumar released a biographical book – Kumar : From Rags To Drag.
Arguably hailed as one of South East Asia’s most iconic and respected performing artists and a brilliant stand-up comedian, Kumar’s journey started in the early 1990’s at now-defunct comedy and dance club, The Boom Boom Room. In a time when people barely dared to speak about queer issues or politics, Kumar cracked the most outrageous jokes about sex, race and government; in between sets of lip-syncing and dance routines. Overtime, Kumar has become a household name, familiar to, and beloved, by all.
Many have categorized Kumar as a diva and star performer without considering the intelligence that’s behind the comedic routine and wisdom, that has been cultivated over the years to negotiate censorship and conservatism in South East Asia. Audiences have reviewed that one could watch Kumar a thousand times, and still walk away feeling like their money and time was well spent bowling over with laughter.
