“The comedy surprise discovery of this year’s Fringe”
★★★★ AdelaideNow.com.au

“Goes for the jugular... a breath of fresh air from the usual japes” -TODAYonline

After a successful run at Adelaide Fringe 2016, award-winning Singaporean comedian Jinx Yeo (1st Runner-Up, Hong Kong International Comedy Festival 2011) makes his Edinburgh Fringe debut.

In “A+ UnderAchiever", Jinx spills the beans on his clumsy attempts to juggle Asian parental expectations with his unorthodox personal aspirations... and the real-world “sitcom” that ensues when he inevitably drops a few balls.

Jinx’s hard-hitting punchlines, effortless delivery, and clever material has made him a front-runner in Asia’s rising comedy scene. One of the most international comedians to come out of Singapore, Jinx has headlined comedy shows all over Asia, as well as in Australia and New Zealand.

Having performed in 16 countries (such as India, Australia, and Germany) on 3 continents, Jinx's comedy material is based on observations and experiences that are widely relatable - not just to Asians, but to audiences of other backgrounds and ethnicities as well. The international appeal of Jinx's comedy won him a Finalist position in the America Meet World Global Comedy Competition (2014).

Enjoy huge belly laughs with Jinx’s hilarious stories and sharp observations… born from intercourse between his strict conservative Asian upbringing, and anti-authoritarian Hippie influences from studying in America.

“Jinx is a disappointment” -Jinx’s parents

A+ Underachiever provides a comedic peek into the experiences of growing up in a traditional Asian family, in an increasingly Westernized world... from the first-ever Singaporean comedian to bring a solo hour-show to the Edinburgh Fringe.
