This year’s birthday has been particularly good, after 2 free meals from Suan & ST the night prior, I went to Sushi Zanmai at Gardens on Ringo‘s treat (who also gave me a book as gift, thanks :D) before heading to watch Gamarjobat thanks to complimentary tickets from Bangsar Actor Studio via Nuffnang.

Hello! Gamarjobat

Gamarjobat actually means “Hello” in Georgian, or “Herro” in Japanese, which is the country the 2 jokers, Ketch and Hiro-pon hail from. One with a yellow Mo-hawk and the other have it red.

This is in fact, my second time watching their show. Last year’s main feature was “The Boxer” which featured a very hillarious slow motion sequence, but this year’s “Western” did not disappoint either. You’ll have to be there at the horse riding and gun shootout parts in person to truly appreciate it. Their signatory fast pace intro and the very funny penguin rock star act adds was equally as hilarious.

The show will stay until 19th October, check the Actor Studio’s site for ticket pricing and schedule. If it is the only live act you’re going to watch this year, make it this one. I’m sure Ringo, Tim, Grace, and Audrey would agree, they were laughing at least as hard as me.

On a semi-related note, I had 2 more free meals in conjunction with the whole birthday thingy. Lorna spent me lunch at Ah Yip’s soup place at Plaza Damas, and Douglas bought me the 1/2 pound set at Wendy’s last night. Five free meals in a row, I must be the luckiest guy!

Emily of the Oral Stage informed me about thier latest project, fiftyninminutes. Following my previous experience in attending one of their shows (Rojaks), I figure this should be something interesting as well. Not quite the actorlympic caliber, but a nice sort of grassroot feel to the whole thing, what more, at RM 10 per pax, it is alot cheaper. Here are some details on the upcoming show:

the Oral Stage - fiftynineminutes

“Two friends discover faith, direction and the truth. An actress whom we all like to hate. A bitter past haunts a bitterer couple. A girl finds beauty in ugliness. A man and a woman make love over dinner. A fellow Malaysian makes the country proud. And a group of roommates bring back the dead- all within fiftynineminutes”

When: September 28th – October 1st 2006 @ 8.30 pm
Where: The Dram Projects, BG06 Happy Mansion Apartments, Jalan 17/13 46400 PJ
Tickets: RM10
Ticket contact and directions: Louisa Low @ 0163757833

Incidentally, the location of the studio is at the same apartment building as the 6 to 10 Grill & Nasi Lemak I blogged about. So, here is the map for the noobs who doesn’t know how to get there.

I think I might have a steak before the show. 😀
