17 Aug – Looks like this particular doctor takes the old adage 'laughter is the best medicine' very seriously. It's none other than Malaysia's very own Dr. Jason Leong, who will be prescribing a big dose of laughter on his Netflix special, "Dr. Jason Leong: Hashtag Blessed".
The upcoming show marks the third comedy stand-up special on Netflix to hail from Malaysia and, as the title entails, will feature the eponymous doctor who is also the first ever Malaysian to win the 7th Annual International Hong Kong Comedy Festival.
"I'm excited to be on Netflix. Now the world can see how good I am at stand-up comedy. And also my humility. When it comes to being humble, I am the best. And also comedy. Yes." said the undeniably humble Dr. Jason Leong regarding his show.
The doctor is said to have quit his job in medicine to "tackle business class show-offs, traditional healers and other insufferable creatures". Through the Netflix special, he will be giving international viewers a taste of the comedic scene in Malaysia.
Get ready to laugh out loud when "Dr. Jason Leong: Hashtag Blessed" is released on Netflix in 190 countries next month.
