Nickelodeon Fiesta
11, 12 March 2017

Kicking off Singapore Festival of Fun is the Southeast Asia debut of a Nickelodeon Fiesta weekend. Inspired by Clarke Quay’s rich Singapore history, the free-entry event will see Clarke Quay transform into a carnival-like playground. The carnival will feature reimagined local childhood games with a Nickelodeon twist and limited edition Nickelodeon collectibles to be won.

Clarke Quay StreetFest
14 to 19 March 2017

The first Clarke Quay StreetFest will feature one of the world’s most famous clowns - Pepe the Clown. On 15 March 2017 he will be joined by world champion unicyclist Jamey Mossengren, who will perform death-defying tricks while involving the audience such as leaping over a volunteer on his 12-ft high unicycle - the world’s tallest unicycle act - whilst juggling a sword, a club and a torch.

Don’t miss the chance to watch The Kamikaze Fireflies, comprising Rob Williams and Casey Martin, who received a standing ovation when they performed on America’s Got Talent. The Kamikaze Fireflies combines circus and comedy in a 40-minute show involving juggling, whip-cracking, a German wheel (gymnastics wheel) and more.

The fun at Clarke Quay StreetFest continues with Bruce Airhead – a street theatre comedy show featuring the metamorphosis of a man and a 6 ft balloon. Ryan Shadow, street magician and illusionist, will also be there. Then there's Rob Roy Collins – Europe’s top street performer and Guinness World Record holder for the fastest upside-down escape from a wet straitjacket while being suspended 20m high from a crane overlooking Niagara Falls. Watch him escape from chains, ropes and handcuffs at the main stage in Clarke Quay’s Fountain Square.

The 4th edition Magners International Comedy Festival Singapore

Comedy lovers are not to be left out at the Singapore Festival of Fun with 12 comedians hailing from Malaysia, Australia, New Zealand, the UK and the US touring the comedy circuit in Asia. Venues such as Warehouse, Maziga, Paulaner Clarke Quay, Crazy Elephant, The Pump Room and McGettigan's will play host to these international standup comedians.

This year, the 4th edition Magners International Comedy Festival Singapore will feature an Irish comedy presentation on 18 March in conjunction with St Patrick’s Day at Irish pub McGettigan’s. Featuring a triple bill of Irishmen Aiden Killian, Martin Mor and comedy circuit favourite Matthew Giffen (half-Irish), the St Patrick’s Day Celtic Showcase promises to delight.

Maziga will be the venue host to some of Malaysia’s top comedians on 17 and 18 March. Back by popular demand from across the causeway are Kavin Jay, Andrew Netto and Sunanda Sachatrakul with a brand of local comedy that includes Malaysia versus Singapore jokes.
