Juliana Heng

Hey everyone, I am Juliana Heng. 

I am an autistic stand-up comedian based in Kuala Lumpur. 

I will be representing Malaysia to audition for Britain’s Got Talent, performing stand-up comedy.

“Autism Acceptance Through Comedy” is a stand-up comedy piece on how I deal with autism & encourage people to relook at autism in a different light. 

This piece has earned a 2nd Runner Up in Short + Sweet Comedy Competition 2019 & 1st Runner Up in the Preliminary Round of Bangkok International Comedy Competition (BICC) 2019, sending me into BICC Finals 2019.

Since autism has not been extensively discussed in the stand-up comedy scene, I am blessed to be a pioneer when it comes to contributing my voice to the world of performing arts. 

I speak about my autism, in the hope that fellow autistics & parents with autistic children can have a light hearted yet thoughtful way of relooking at autism as a gift instead of an inconvenience or a burden. 

The audition is happening on 15 December 2019 in Nottingham, United Kingdom. 

However, I am short of funds to buy a flight ticket from Kuala Lumpur to London. Also, living in UK fora few weeks in the winter can be daunting for a first timer like me.

If you wanna chip in for my journey to London so I can get to the Britain’s Got Talent 2020 audition, I will thank you my whole life! 

There is no minimum amount because every dollar matters.

1) Fundraising my flight ticket to London 

2) Buying Winter Clothes & living expenses through the winter

3) Sort out accommodation in London 

4) Work out transportation within London & outside London (My audition is in Nottingham) 

I am excited but am very afraid at the same time. 

Hopefully, I can check off “Making Simon Cowell laugh” on my bucket list & make Malaysia proud!!!
