I got a spare ticket for a comedy theatre concert on Friday 21 Sept. Hmmm... need to invite someone along... its for that rarest of Singapore shows - political satire. The very title amuses me.
"The Campaign to Confer the Public Service Star on JBJ"
In case you don't know, Jeyaratnam is JBJ - the ethnic Indian opposition MP who royally pissed off the establishment and got his pants sued off for defamation. But in this clever satire - they only use his initials. I think a Chinese guy plays his role.
God know who wants to go for such shows these days. Political satire in Singapore is about as popular as SARS. Anyone?
