Keeping it Short + Sweet


Penangpac theatre manager Ooi Kee How on putting together Penang's first S+S show.

Short + Sweet Stand-Up Comedy was introduced in Malaysia in 2012. What is the objective of Short + Sweet in Penang?
Short + Sweet is meant to be a platform for youths to perform in the arts scene. We modelled Short + Sweet after Dana Belia, an organisation in Malaysia that supports youth development in the arts industry, which was also one of our sponsors.

Short + Sweet caters to people within the age range of 15 to 26. Nonetheless, there is no real age limit. For theatre, the youngest was 16 and the oldest was in his 40s. For dance, the youngest was 13 and the oldest, 34.
