iflix has additionally commissioned edgy, no holds barred comedy series, "Oi! Jaga Mulut" (Malaysia) / "Huy! Bibig Mo" (Philippines) / "Oi! Jaga Lambe" (Indonesia). Roughly translated as “Watch Your Mouth”, the audacious, new uncensored multi-territory stand-up comedy format will be filmed in front of a live studio audience in each country and published as its own local show. The original eight-part series is a bold experiment showcasing the kind of humor previously only heard in comedy clubs, featuring both established and promising new trailblazers in the raw, rude and downright hilarious underground comedy scenes. The series will be hosted by comedic icons Haniff Hamzah in Malaysia, Ramon Bautista in the Philippines and Ananda Omesh in Indonesia.
