For its third biennial run, Dream Academy has rallied some of Singapore’s Best Comedians to bring you an overdose of laughter in Happy Ever Laughter: Standup Comedy Madness! Boldly marketed as the miracle cure for all the frustrating ailments endured by Singaporeans on our tiny red dot, your local favourites directed by Hossan Leong will be running amok at the Esplanade Theatre from 26 October – 6 November 2016. Tickets are on sales now!
In case you are wondering, the 11 Comedy Consultants on duty this year include new faces to the standup comedy scene – Suhaimi Yusof, Patricia Mok and Dee Kosh – as well as returning favourites – Kumar, Sebastian Tan a.k.a Broadway Beng, Siti Khalijah, Judee Tan, Rishi Budhrani, Fakkah Fuzz, Sharul Channa and Hossan Leong and they are bent on bringing you the best of Singapore Comedy!
From misunderstood Chindians and Malays who would not do overtime to the irony of making mini Singaporeans. It is a dose of 11 comedians over two hours that will leave you in stitches, so you have Gotta Catch ‘Em All!
When asked about his thoughts on gathering and directing so many talents under one roof, Hossan Leong comments, “It’s a wonderful opportunity to work with my colleagues in this fashion. Sharing ideas, laughing at stories, planning a fantastic show together. I don’t see it as directing the show. It’s more like a collaboration. Everyone in this show is a powerhouse of talent!”
But the Comedy Consultants are not the only mad-dically trained specialists Leong has brought on board! He has recruited a healthy dosage of incredibly talented and some of the Best Script-writers in Singapore – Benjamin ‘Mr Miyagi’ Lee, Edmund Tan, Alfian Sa’at, Jo Tan, Dwayne Lau, Josiah Ng and Leong Ching. “Having this dynamic super writing team, and a group of super funny actors/comedians, every workshop and script meeting has been a hoot!” says Leong. “Be prepared for personal stories, anecdotes and real-life scenarios that you would never believe has happened to our stars!”
