The return of the Allan Perera Charity Show: Laugh your way to free education


A little bird told me of an Upcoming Event in support of Edunation, a not-for-profit movement seeking to build a free educational ecosystem online for Malaysian students.
Allan Perera, Malaysia’s much loved comedian, musician, artiste and philanthropist is back by popular demand with more giggles to share. This charity show is sponsored by Brickfields Asia College (BAC) with all proceeds going to Edunation.

The first half of the 100-minute show, A Vinyl Invasion, is a musical with the second half showcasing Perera’s wicked comedy satire “Malaysia’s Got Scandal”. This unique show features Allan playing many whacky Malaysian-inspired characters such as Elvis Tan, Y.B. Wan Bedek Wan Temberang, Saudara Kam Mun Ting and Guitar Joe.
Perera’s return has given birth to a new initiative called the Giggle Challenge which is a social media driven, awareness and fund-raising gig similar to the virulent ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. The idea is to gather as many giggles as possible through social media with every giggle translating to a five (5) cents donation toward Edunation’s efforts to provide free education for all Malaysian school children.

Edunation is a fast-growing and not-for-profit platform supported by Brickfields Asia College which focuses on developing a freely accessible education system for all. To date, Edunation has produced more than 2,500 learning videos, hundreds of practices and has co-organised syllabus-focused seminars for Form 1 to Form 5 students. “With the vast support we have from both donors and users, we are expecting to double the number of users before the end of the year; from the initial 25,000 to 50,000” said Edmond Yap, the founder of Edunation.

There’s no better way to bring a person more joy than by sharing laughter. Share your laughter for a good cause!

1) Watch the show which runs from 6th to 11th October (8.30pm) at PJ Live Arts, Jaya One.
