Just six months after their successful team-up in “EJK: Extra Judicial Kidding,” comedians Jon Santos and Kakai Bautista will once again share the same stage in a comedy concert called “Live, Love, Laugh” that is expected to find humor in just about everything around us.
The concert promises to be another rip-roaring affair as Jon will poke fun on today’s news, both real and fake, while Kakai will do her share to keep everyone in stitches with hilarious new numbers and sidesplitting monologues.
“This will be a more intimate laugh-out-loud affair with new sketches from both Jon and Kakai,” noted director Joaquin Valdes in a recent interview with InterAksyon. “Comedy needs to move with the current and prevailing thoughts and opinions of the society. So this will have new and fresh thoughts from our performers as well as new performances and songs.”
For years, Jon has been treading the fine line between politics and showbiz with his spot-on impersonations of public figures and celebrities, an art that has become his bread and butter over the years.
In addition to being a funny comedian, Kakai is also an accomplished singer so what she offers complements Jon in a big way.
“Their unquestionable chemistry makes for a Grade-A comedy show. They are so funny that even our brainstorming sessions are mini-shows by themselves. We can hardly finish a meeting without laughing our heads off,” Valdes quipped.
“Jon and Kakai are true comics. It’s hard to pick one over the other. The reason they are so funny is because they are so honest — about themselves, about life and about everything. It takes an extremely generous human being to be a true comic.”
Another highlight that sets “Live, Love Laugh” apart from EJK is the inclusion of the hilarious comedy group ISPRIKITIK Improv.
Making waves in the local comedy circuit, ISPRIKITIK Improv is composed of musicians, actors, singers, composers and dancers who decided to embark on the journey of improvisational comedy.
“Through scenes, games, and musical performances, ISPRIKITIK Improv reaps laughter through their quick-witted comedy style,” Valdes added.
Presented by Resorts World Manila in cooperation with Ultimate Shows, Inc., “Live, Love, Laugh” is happening on August 12 at 8PM and August 13 at 3PM at the Ceremonial Hall of the Marriott Grand Ballroom.
Tickets to the show are available at the Resorts World Manila Box Office and all TicketWorld outlets at P5,000 for SVIP; P4,200 for VIP; and P3,400 for Gold.
