Sharul is the only full-time female stand-up comedian in Singapore. Fuelled by the twin desires to give women a voice and put Singapore on the global comedy map, she has recently staged sold-out shows highlighting the challenges faced by women today, such as Crazy Poor Sita, and Disco Sheela and Other Indian Superwomen. Also a trained actor, she is planning a tour of Asia.
