Turn that frown upside down, because the weekends are here, along with gigs, parties and celebrations all around! [firstpara]
Kel And Jay: Bound And Gagged
Get your laughboxes wound up, because on October 23, Nuffnang Philippines and Sheero Media will be presenting Kel and Jay: Bound and Gagged at the PETA Theater. Kel and Jay are two local comedians-cum-magicians who will amuse you to no end with their magic tricks, their brand of comedy, and the combination of both.
Along with them for the ride are the countryâ€™s top ventriloquists, Ony Carcamo and Wanlu to give you a puppet show that will really tug at your laugh strings. Serving up more comedy are Richie Fernandez and Mike Unson, while Giniling Festival and Grin Department will provide some musical entertainment. Itâ€™s a great, all-around show, is what it is!
John Hughes Film Festival at the Shang Cineplex
John Hughes, the famous director of 80â€™s coming-of-age films died a couple months back, so itâ€™s kind of strange that Shang will be doing his tribute just now. But hey, another serving of John Hughesâ€™ works is still another servifing of John Hughes. From October 23 to 25, Shang Cineplex 3 will play host to the directorâ€™s most famous works including The Breakfast Club, Pretty in Pink, Some Kind of Wonderful and Ferris Buellerâ€™s Day Off.
Akon Live in Manila 2009
After Lady Gaga, comes another pop sensation that once proved his gangsta-ness with his 2006 Konvicted album. Yep, Akon visits Manila today October 23 at the Araneta Coliseum, performing all the jams and beats that have long been a favorite in the local clubbing scene. Opening for him is Billy Crawford, who we honestly could do without since weâ€™ve seen him on weekend variety shows one too many times already.
