The recently finished comedy show billed as Klownz Comedy Bar, held last May 29, at Club Regent Event Centre, was successful in all fronts. It was full-packed, assuring that the producers, couples Dennis Castañeda and Mary Aromin, got back their investment and efforts’ worth—ready for the next project; the audience was really satisfied, judging by how they laughed their hearts out all virtually throughout the entire show; and the performers, both the main artists and the opening local acts, engaged the audience really well.
Each of the three Philippine comedians—Boobay, Ate Gay, and Allan K—delivered his own style of comedy in rainbow colors. Boobay’s style revolved around his knack for wordplay, making him the classy stripe among the three clowns. Ate Gay’s equally engaging segment featured mashups of classic and contemporary Filipino and non-Filipino songs which sent much of the crowd guffawing. Finally, Allan K came across as the serious yet simply funny one, hard-hitting and subtle sexually-infused jokes but delivered in juxtapositional suave and taste; as in the Filipino lingo, “pasimpleng bastos pero tipong matino at maginoo.”
In short, the Winnipeg leg of the Klownz Comedy Bar 2015 Canadian Tour was a success. Because of this, we can now expect more classy entertainment projects to come from producers Castañeda and Aromin with their production support group.
