iflix premieres First Malaysian Original Series, Oi! Jaga Mulut
Kuala Lumpur (24 July 2017) — iflix, the world’s leading Subscription Video on Demand (SVoD) service for emerging markets, is thrilled to premiere edgy, no holds barred comedy series, Oi! Jaga Mulut. Starting today, new episodes will be available weekly every Monday, only on iflix. The seven-part series is iflix’s first original production and is hosted by comedic icon, Haniff Hamzah.
Oi Jaga Mulut! brings a brand new experience to Malaysia. Now iflix members can enjoy the Malaysia’s edgiest and funniest comedy club in the comfort and convenience of their homes (or the bus, the train, the bathroom…basically, anywhere you can take your phone). Only the sharpest, funniest comedians take to the stage with their hilarious, biting and quirky humour. The jokes are edgy, near-the-knuckle and sometimes, downright rude. The bottom line is – if it’s funny, it’s in. Joanne Kam, Papi Zak, Rayza Mukmin and Jon Atherton, join the incredibly talented showcase, tackling taboo subjects you’ve never seen them joke about before. Oi! Jaga Mulut is the next generation of Malaysian comedy, featuring established acts alongside fresh, original talent, completely uncensored in a series of stand-up routines and riotous improvised games.
iflix Global Director of Original Commissioning, Mark Francis commented: “Our first original production, Oi! Jaga Mulut (“watch your mouth”) underlines iflix’s ambition to lead an entertainment revolution in emerging markets. Stand-up is still very young in this part of the world, but it’s a great way to localise our content offering because we’re doing it through the unique voices of local talent who want to push the envelope, too.”
“We realise not everybody gets to go to comedy clubs, so with this show we’re putting that opportunity directly in your hands,” Francis added. “We want to grow appreciation for stand-up and establish iflix as new home for the region’s most talented comics.”
iflix has additionally commissioned the comedy series in both Philippines and Indonesia; Huy! Bibig Mo (Philippines) and Oi! Jaga Lambe (Indonesia), will be hosted by Ramon Bautista and Ananda Omesh, respectively.
