Good for the Barang

Watch two dark-skinned 'Chinamen' discussing every potion except the wonderful little blue pills*

Comedy Court, made up of Allan Perera and Indi Nadarajah, have been performing social and political satire Malaysian style for 15 years now.

The story of how it all began...

Although their names have become synonymous with good comedy, Indi and Allan weren't always involved in theatre.

Allan says: "I was playing music with bands like Made in Malaysia and Pieces."

Indi says: "I was doing amateur drama before joining ICT [Instant Cafe Theatre]".

"We met in '91 when Allan came in to do the music for ICT. We messed around with some ideas and came up with a skit called the Oblong Bar featuring Loga and Singam."

Before long they developed the full length play called Quid Pro Quo, staged in 1996, which established they reputation as comedians.

Comedy Court was set up in 1997 and they have never looked back...

Catch more of Indi and Allan on Youtube and even better see them LIVE
