At 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, the group will stage “SinuLOL! International Comedy Show” in The Scrapyard Lounge, 2F The Henry Hotel-Cebu, One Paseo Saturnino on Maria Luisa Road entrance cor. Gov. M. Cuenco Ave., in Banilad. Entrance fee will be at P200 per person.

These comedians practice point-of-view comedy made popular by comic legends such as George Carlin, Louis CK, Ricky Gervais, Will Ferrell, Chris Rock, and Fil-Ams Rex Navarette and Jo Koy. This type of comedy, which makes use of anecdotal, life observation and perspective humor, is very different from the drag queen and insult comedy popular in mainstream comedy clubs here in the country.
Comedy Cebu said in a press release that it “does not only aim to bring seasoned stand-up comics from Manila and other countries to Cebu, but we are also intent on initiating the formation of a local observational comedy community.”
“Comedy Cebu’s goal is to provide not only quality stand-up comedy entertainment to Cebu and but also a productive avenue for aspiring comics of all ages, race/nationalities and gender orientations, who can deliver their sets using point-of-view comedy in Bisaya/Tagalog/English.
