This episode was recorded in Kuala Lumpur.
Jonathan Atherton built the comedy scene in Singapore and now he just opened the first full time comedy club in Kuala Lumpur called The Crack House.
When he first appeared on my podcast one year ago I got a tremendous response from people saying that thought he was the most interesting man in the world.
His stories about selling shoes to prostitutes in Kenya and smuggling gas into Uganda captivated me and anyone else who heard them. Now he has lived in Malaysia for one year and has just launched the Crack House comedy club.
If this podcast had a bigger budget I would have dropped confetti on his head.
In this episode we talk about the disappearance of the Malaysian airlines plane,
how he is not afraid to go off and party with angry Nigerians all night,
the sad and untimely death of Vernon Lewis "Life is too short to die with bitterness in your heart." How Malaysian police are the best police money can buy, the crude humor that Australians are born with and how we could all learn from an ancient Hindu ritual and suffer more to psychologically elevate yourself of guilt.
He is a man that I respect and admire because he forges much darkness with the light of laughter. Get yourself another big portion of the one and only Jonathan Atherton.
