K Brosas, Kim Idol promise to bring the house down at Doha show.

AILYN AGONIA DOHA "ALL I know about Qatar is that it is a disciplined country and has a fast growing economy.

In other words, it's very rich!" This is how popular Filipina comedienne K Brosas chose to describe the next destination of her comedy show.

K, together with the equally hilarious Filipino funny-man Kim Idol, promises to bring the house down when they perform in Qatar on July 1. "I will try my best to deliver a great show that you can all understand (Filipinos and non-Filipinos audience).

Let's just have a wonderful time, leave your worries behind and have a great laugh!" the Filipina comedienne told Qatar Tribune in an interview from Manila.

Like most of her overseas performances, K would be looking to tickle the funny bones of her Doha kababayans (Filipino slang for compatriots).

"It is easier to entertain Filipinos based abroad because they work so hard.

Watching us perform funny acts would help refresh their mind and make them relax and feel at home, even if it is only for a brief period." On her on-stage performance, she said, "I don't prepare my acts.

I just go with the flow and do what the people want.

As a performer I should be conscious of the expectations of the crowd from the moment I stand before them.

I will perform according to the mood of my audience." The star performer's trademark act is incorporating comedy with singing.

After all, she first made a name in the Philippines entertainment industry as a singer.

She used to be the lead singer of the group 'K and the Boxers' (formerly known as Gladys and the Boxers with K).

"I started my career as a singer, but I am a natural comedian.

I always love to laugh and make people laugh.

But my greatest passion is doing live performances.

Whenever I do stand-up comedy, I also incorporate singing into it," said K on her on-stage modus operandi.

Asked about her work inspiration, K named American stand-up comediennes and hosts Ellen DeGeneres and Wanda Sykes and fellow Filipina Ai Ai Delas Alas as her top bets.

"I like Ellen DeGeneres because she's spontaneous.

She can be wholesome, can be a little naughty but she's never nasty.

Wanda Sykes, on the other hand, is vulgar but she always gets away with it, because she's very upfront and can discuss anything from celebrities to politics.

I also admire the versatility of Ai Ai Delas Alas.

I hope, I can replicate her current stature in the Philippines entertainment industry," she said.

The other star comedian Kim Idol said that he is also looking forward to meet his kababayans.

Like K, it will also be his first performance in Doha.

"I want everyone to enjoy and have fun since this is what the show demands," he said.

Kim Idol used to be a co-host in Eat Bulaga, Philippines' longest running television programme.

He is also a favourite act in top comedy circles across Manila.

The performer, who considers Jerry Seinfield and Filipino comedy veterans Jon Santos and Arnell Ignacio as his heroes in the industry, said he will give his best for his compatriots and fans in Doha.

The show hosting the K Brosas-Kim Idol combination would be organised by Golden Relations, the event management company behind the comedy shows series The League of Extraordinary Comedians.

"The K Brosas-Kim Idol show in Doha is just a glimpse to bigger, more exciting and exclusive future projects of Golden Relations.

Doha residents can look forward to many more audience-specific events as we intend to diversify the local entertainment scene and make it more interesting for everyone, said Golden Relations CEO Bilal Taha.

The show would be held at the Sheraton Doha Hotel (at 4pm and 8pm).

Spicing up the programme would be local acts like Beats & Bytes Dancers, Morenas, among others.

Tickets are priced at QR70 (pre-sale) and QR80 (at the door) available at Sheraton F&B Office (44854556), Colombiano Coffee House Ramada and Ezdan Tower, Puerto Gallera Restaurant Mansoura, Metro Manila Salon Souq Filipino (55366972) and Beats & Bytes Production (77022873).
