Thick skinned

 Albums V88 Shaoann Mpd4When Naomi asked me last night, ‘how was the show?’, I said, ‘good, Hossan was so funny I kept laughing even though I knew what was coming’.

‘Not shy, some people! Laugh at own joke!’, she said.

What I can say is, the jokes are no longer mine once they’ve been given a life of their own by Hossan. He owns the space. I mean, really! Me and the costume designer Mothar were in stitches, barely keeping our butts on our seats even though we had seen every single skit several hundred times.

And I’m not saying this just because I’m hoping more tickets will be sold. Although that would be nice. So here’s the link. Thank you very much!

    Wish I could be there to see the show!

    You’re right – writers give the material to the actor, and it’s up to the actor to take it up another notch, or fail miserably.

    Look at Jon Stewart! He’s only half as funny without his writers!

    Congratulations Miyagi!

  21. Hossan Leong’s Multiple Disorder Personalities…

    What I was impressed is that Hossan can just add in anything into the script. Like during the opening, he suan-ed we are being blamed for causing our neighbour脗鈥檚 flood and I thought I just heard it on the news like 2 days ago ! Better still, he also t…

    My personal favourite was a spoof of The Six Million Dollar Man, who under Benjamin Lee’s zany scripting became “The Six Million Rupiah Man” who has “bi-focal eyes” and runs slow-mo to specialist clinics in Paragon for medical examinations! Anothe…

  26. Funniest guy in town :)…

    I must say that I never get sick of seeing his stand-up ‘coz he is just so talented! Else, how to make a full-house audience laugh with him throughout a 90-minute show?…

    Still .. as tired as I was, I am so glad I went to watch Hossan’s standup comedy, adptly named ‘Multiple Disorder’….

    Initially, I was concerned that it might get a bit boring, for you see only one person throughout the whole skit but my worries proved to be unduly for there wasn’t a single moment that passed by without me laughing out loud….

    Hossan Leong’s latest stand-up comedy act, Multiple Personalities Disorder. The show is written by popular blogger Mr Miyagi and produced by actress and fellow stand-up comedian, Selena Tan….

    The show was shit.

    The jokes were lame, performance was way too ‘over the top’ even for theatre, and what ‘direction’ was needed, eh?

    The worst bit was the fucking audience.

    I would reckon that yall had stooges planted in the crowd to laugh macam sitcom like that.

    I want my fucking money back

    Hossan is truly amazing.. for such a hilarious solo/ multiple performance.

    i laughed non-stop throughout the whole show….

  33. […] well, if you are the writer for the show and you sing praises of the show, there are chances that there would be this significant other who would comment on the thickness of your hide skin. since i am just a pighead sitting in the audience, i am free to comment on the show without the question of the thickness of my skin being called into question.
