Your favourite newscasters and field reporters are about to become part of a bona fide stage show. For three days only, starting March 31, Chua Enlai, Alaric Tay, Suhaimi Yusof and Judee Tan will reprise their roles from the long-running satirical news programme The Noose to bring you a roaring good time.
The four actors (and their intrepid journalist alter egos) will be teaming up their kakis (or buddies) — stand-up comedians Kumar from Singapore and Harith Iskander, Fakkah Fuzz, Rizal Van Geyzel and Kavin Jay from Malaysia — to present a distinct take on hot-button topics on both sides of the Causeway.
Expect a succession of irreverent commentary on local and regional politics and current affairs, including the running joke about the kind neighbouring country that generously supplies us with 11 months of fresh air every year.
Having performed their (in)famous sketch at the opening of Mediacorp’s campus at one-north last December, the motley crew will return to The Theatre @ Mediacorp on 1 Stars Avenue for their live show.
The Noose ended its eighth season last year. The series won Best Comedy Programme at the 2010 and 2011 Asian Television Awards and earned an International Emmy Awards nomination in 2011.
This production is presented by MediaCorp VizPro International and Channel 5.
