On The Beat and Path
Day 118, Mar 18, 2011
It is a rare opportunity that the boys of On The Beat and Path get together and play live. Our schedules rarely allow a rehearsal, let alone time to play a show. However, the stars have aligned and it appears that we are going to get a 90-minute set live in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia tonight (Friday, March 18th). If you happen to be in KL, stop by the Backyard Pub in Sri Hartamas. We are sharing the stage with local expat darlings, Lif Bomba. We are going to start early, 8 pm early, as we have another engagement immediately after. So please do try to stop by.
As a comedian in Kuala Lumpur, I often use the Internet to get my fix of like-minded creative folk around the world. I came across this video the other day that blew my mind. It is amazing to see a child (she’s ten years old) with such poise while in an adult world.
But there is tons of comedy going on here in Kuala Lumpur as well. The Comedy Club KL (CCKL) continues their March run of shows tonight and tomorrow and my boys Kavin, Papi and Jason are producing their own show called, Comedians On The Rocks. Thank you for continuing to support local comedy.
Condo living in Kuala Lumpur can be great until they decide to randomly test their alarm systems for a couple of hours every day. I am not even sure why this is mandatory practice. If this building goes up inflames, it’s over. Even with fire station about 300 m away, it won’t get here in less than 60 minutes.
This is the last day for my Johnny Cash appreciation week. Focusing on the live album from Folsom Prison, it amazes me the attention he has of every inmate, no matter how ‘hardened’ they may be. Cash’s ability to help the inmates escape from their torturous walls is immeasurable. The guards are invisible, their crimes momentarily ignored, and the songs (apathetic, sad, funny) appreciated. Cash and June’s chemistry is also unignorable as she walks on stage at the 33 minute mark of the show. There is not a man in that prison who would rather be anywhere else during the three minutes and twelve seconds of Jackson.
So we have a music show tonight, off to Singapore tomorrow, back on Monday, Borneo on Tuesday,Philippines the week after. We apologies for any distance you may feel from us.
Remember, something unbelievable is coming your way April 1st, 2011.
