Introducing Oi! Jaga Mulut
Hosted by comedic icon, Haniff Hamzah, Oi! Jaga Mulut is a seven-part comedy series that will be released every Monday only on iflix. iflix members will be able to enjoy the edgiest and funniest comedy club wherever they are, whenever they want.
iflix promises that only the sharpest, funniest comedians will take to the Oi! Jaga Mulut stage with hilarious, biting and quirky humour. The jokes are edgy, near-the-knuckle and sometimes, downright rude. The bottom line is – if it’s funny, it’s in.
Joanne Kam, Papi Zak, Rayza Mukmin and Jon Atherton are amongst the talented showcase headlining the show. Best of all, they dare to tackle taboo subjects that most Malaysians have never seen them joke about before. Believe it or not – it’s all uncensored. Don’t believe us?

iflix Global Director of Original Commissioning, Mark Francis commented: “Our first original production, Oi! Jaga Mulut (“watch your mouth”) underlines iflix’s ambition to lead an entertainment revolution in emerging markets. Stand-up is still very young in this part of the world, but it’s a great way to localise our content offering because we’re doing it through the unique voices of local talent who want to push the envelope, too.”
“We realise not everybody gets to go to comedy clubs, so with this show we’re putting that opportunity directly in your hands,” Francis added. “We want to grow appreciation for stand-up and establish iflix as new home for the region’s most talented comics.”
iflix has additionally commissioned the comedy series in both Philippines and Indonesia; Huy! Bibig Mo (Philippines) and Oi! Jaga Lambe (Indonesia), will be hosted by Ramon Bautista and Ananda Omesh, respectively.
