MANILA: When Imah Dumagay takes the stage, it is not just comedy for her but also a mission, where the spotlight and microphone become her weapons to tackle stereotypes — one punchline at a time.

Dumagay began her journey in the UAE in 2008. After 10 years of working in the corporate world, a sudden change of heart made her take acting classes, which soon flipped her career upside down and turned her into the first Filipina stand-up comedian in the Gulf region.

Since 2018, Dumagay has performed nearly every night and now has over 70,000 followers on TikTok.
