Stand-up Comedy

In 2005 Jan gave a successful series of stand-up comedy shows (林海峰是但噏發花癲), which all sold out. Jan also released a new song album which has sold very well to the extent that he has been nominated for the "best male singer award" by Chik Chak 903 (叱吒903). He also wrote many parody songs and uses them on his comedy routines.

In 17–22, 26 September 2009, there will be another talk show under the Stand-up Comedy Series, namely "Yes, I Do 3omething" (林海峰是但噏我願意). It would take place in the Hong Kong Stadium.

TV commercials

Jan Lamb lends his voice to a huge number of television commercials in Hong Kong. One of his most successful commercials was for Gummi Mini Burgers, which was made up of a dialogue script of only one phrase repeated three times. The script read '食多啲 食多啲 食多啲啦' which literally meant 'Eat More, Eat More, Eat More!'. Jan Lamb also dubbed the Cantonese version of the Hong Kong Disneyland grand opening commercial.

As Softhard, he was also a part of a TV advertising campaign for McDonald's Hong Kong with Janice Vidal and Charles Ying.
