No regrets having dinner at home beforehand as there wasn't much left in terms of F&B options (this was after ticket scan and hand stamp downstairs in the parking lot), so I headed up to my seat and I was just in time to see Gurmit Singh's Ah Beng contractor character Phua Chu Kang do his thing as host. I'm still surprised he still has the costume, but even if he didn't, I imagine it wouldn't cost too much to reproduce :P I also wasn't expecting him to be giving stuff out to people and have audience participation activities, which made me glad I didn't spend more on tickets and made me feel like I was at some company annual dinner...
|Thought I was going to be closer to the ledge than this :P|
The only person I was tickled by (in any sense of the word) was PCK, whom I have to give props for entertaining those of us who were still in their seats during the 15 minute intermission by singing a couple of songs: some Jason Mraz song and another ballad. I didn't know the man could sing, but good on him.
Everyone (Kavin Jay, Singaporean comic Fakkah Fuzz, and Crackhouse Comedy Club co-owner Jonathan Atherton) did their 15 minutes, and after intermission, Harith came on as headliner, which also wasn't all that long... maybe half an hour?
What I also wasn't expecting (a night of surprises, I know) was that after everyone was done, the comics were going to do the joke-off on topics by the audience. I think they were also doing something else, but I figured I better GTFO first and the beat the traffic...
Note to self: probably better to park at D7 Jalan Sentul (free parking, and easier to get out), which houses the Three Little Birds Cafe (which I managed to squeeze in on my way out with a cup of dark hot chocolate).
No idea if I would go again...depends on the lineup, I guess.
