From the blogfather of Singapore, the mrbrown show is beloved for its biting satire and quintessentially Singaporean humour. After twenty years of coming to you via the Internet, catch mrbrown in a never-seen-before concert at SIFA v2.020, as the comedian launches his debut music album.
Directed by music producer James Lye and backed by a rollicking live band, mrbrown will take the stage to sing and act together with his favourite collaborators, blogger Mr Miyagi and local poet Marc Nair, in the mrbrown show LIVE!
Some of mrbrown’s classic podcasts will be re-imagined as skits, and be sure to expect some brand new material. You’ll even get to join in and create content with mrbrown as he goes ‘live’ in this concert.
mrbrown (Lee Kin Mun) is the Blogfather of Singapore and the accidental author of mrbrown.com, who has been documenting the dysfunctional side of Singapore life since 1997.
He is known for his humorous yet biting socio-political commentary on Singapore, and satirical sketches on current events which feature a host of quirky characters, like Kim Huat, Singapore’s Number One Fan. He also produces the popular podcast “the mrbrown show”.

Oh, he also occasionally sings.
