3 December: Talk Cock Sing Song by ASAP Improv

Improv Show in Singapore ASAP

Where: #02-05 Aliwal Arts Centre
When: 7:30 to 8:30pm
Price: $15 onwards
Facebook event page |
Tickets

The Song family would like you to think that they are an average Singapore family. I mean, they only have 3 cars and a modest terrace house that’s about 5000 square feet in size. A far cry from the posh folks who live in your 15000 square feet Good Class Bungalows.

Setting an example as prominent community leaders (and also because Mr Song owes his politician friend a favour for George’s letter of recommendation), join Mr and Mrs Song and their two Anglo-Chinese School-educated sons Frederick and George as they take part in a government-commissioned game show where they’ll be playing games (musical or otherwise) not unlike the ones on Whose Line Is It Anyway.

Based off your suggestions, they’ll have to come up with original songs and create never-before-seen sketches on the spot. Which shouldn’t be a problem since putting on an act in front of strangers is a daily affair.

So laugh along with them (or at them, although the Mrs will have you know it’s unbecoming for learned folk to laugh inappropriately) and host cum maestro Joel Chua as they talk cock, sing song, and maybe play mahjong for your entertainment in this entirely improvised and unscripted show of epic proportions.

Be an early bird an save 25% of the standard ticket price. Early bird sales end 28th November 2359hrs.


6 December: Latecomers Improv : Open Mic Wednesdays

Improv Show in Singapore The Latecomers

Where: Centre 42 Rehearsal Studios
When: 8pm-9.30pm

A one of its kind open mic night for improv and stand-up comedy!

If you’ve been dying to get back on stage and dust off your improv or comedy muscles, this is the perfect opportunity for you! The Latecomers welcome all improvisers and stand-up comedians to come together to do their thang.

How it works:
~10 minute set for improv (4-5 troupes)
~5 minute set for standup (3 minutes if it’s your first open mic) [4-5 standup comics]

Sign up here with a group or as an individual improviser/comedian and we’ll put you in an ad-hoc perfoming group.
Lists will be finalized and sent out before the show.

We’ve got more plans in the works for these open mic nights and hopefully some F&B options, BYOB in the meantime for that mid-week stress buster.

Are you Desi? Always coming up short on your peep’s expectations? Are you single but under pressure sometimes to consider marriage because your relatives manage to corner you at a wedding?

Alright, don’t be too proud of yourself. Calm down. Come celebrate your desi-ness in a unique comedy format. Let some funny (swa)desis entertain you with short-form improv comedy games (a la Whose Line Is It Anyways).

“But why would I pay $$ to watch these random people make fun of my kind? ” Don’t be a downer, dude.
Come on over, get your bones tickled and have some delish cocktails like the Delhi Belly while you’re at it.
And if you still don’t like the show, suck it up. Life for us brown people isn’t always a rosy dream.
