Vivek Mahbubani

Vivek Mahbubani is a Hong Kong-bred stand-up comedian performing in both Cantonese and English. Having been crowned the Funniest Person (in Chinese) in Hong Kong in 2007, followed by his victory in the English category at the Hong Kong International Comedy Competition in 2008, Mahbubani has taken his sense of humour all over the world; including to Hong Kong, China, Macau, Singapore, Malaysia, Philippines, Thailand, Sri Lanka, India, Australia, Canada and the US.


The US’ World Famous Laugh Factory ranked him as one of the top 10 comedians in their Annual Funniest Person in the World Competition. In 2015 he was handpicked to represent Asia’s Best in the Melbourne International Comedy Festival’s inaugural “Comedy Zone Asia” shows. In 2018 he was named among the Ten Outstanding Young Persons in Hong Kong.

His favourite book is Sun Tzu's Art of War, yet his most preferred colour is, oddly, hot pink.
