(Macao, July 15, 2013) - Hong Kong's Commercial Radio 2 DJ, actor and musician Jim Yan is bringing his hilarious and socially-conscious stand-up comedy routine, Jim's Super Me Talk Show, to The Venetian Macao Aug. 3, after staging 12 successful Hong Kong shows. Tickets are on sale now at all CotaiTicketing™ box offices*.
The comedian will perform as Chiu Yim Keung, the virtual character he plays in his radio drama on Hong Kong's Commercial Radio 2. Created as a gay icon, Chiu is an ordinary office boy who only cares about where to eat, play and meet charming boys. Yan will aim for big laughs as his character Chiu, ever on the quest for superstardom, discusses topics like instant gratification in the entertainment industry, the local real estate market, his difficulties in running a business, and his viewpoints on marriage. It's a chance for the audience to enjoy a light-hearted look at some of the universal issues faced in life, like the social and economic atmosphere, local lifestyle, and sexuality.
Yan's colourful virtual character has enjoyed success in the real world, with Chiu's song "Secret Garden" reaching No. 1 on iTunes, staying on the charts for seven weeks.
