Add Ink: Cartoons and Comedy in Hong Kong
It was Harry Harrison’s cartoons in the South China Morning Post that first made stand-up comedian Vivek Mahbubani realise it was possible to build a career out of making people laugh. Tonight they get together at the Fringe Club to celebrate Harry’s recent SCMP anthology Add Ink, and to discuss mining the events of the day for comedy gold. Best known as the principal political cartoonist for the SCMP, Harry Harrison also illustrates and provides satirical cartoons across the South China area. Vivek Mahbubani is a bi-lingual stand-up comedian, born and raised in Hong Kong, who was awarded the title of Funniest Person (in Chinese) in Hong Kong in 2007. Don’t miss a lively conversation about laughter in words and images.
