    I think people who can't catch any ball about the noose, or think they're too lame, have no sense of humour. Period.

    WHERE HAVE THE FREAKING JURONG JOKES GONE TO AFTER THAT SPECIAL EPISODE???

    Regarding balls, you can count me out, I've caught just too many of their "loose" marbles already!

    I think the Noose is the best class act in our local commedian scene. The impressionists are just too hilarious to ignore... A remedy to our already beyond-hope, anal-retentive society (with so many looking so serious on the streets, mrt, lift, etc).

    The second that comes to mind is Just for laughs, although that greatly pales in comparison to the original Canadian series (best overall) - but I do get a good geniune laughs once in a while.

    Oh forget about the Jurong jokes already! I can't wait to see the Geyland IR ones that's coming up!

    He and his deep nasal trump card of a British accent (although not exactly the real thing, but I'm pretty sure he did it intentionally in jest!).

    I also adore Andrew Chiciak - now where and how do they come up with a name like that!? Sounds like a DSLR's shutter!

    Seriously, I think these guys must have been the bane of their teachers and form teachers! What a riot!

    Chicak = lizard in malay. Though I dunno how that applies in his context. Haha.

    These guys are pure talent. But do you know that the scriptwriter is a lady? *salutes*

    I love the Jurong jokes la. The fact that I caught the jokes comforted me that I actually know "national" jokes and its sad that many friends don't. They looked at me and asked, so what's the joke? Like... =_="""

    Geylang one, of coz ah. Everyone shd know. But its not as subtle a humour as Jurong. Im still expecting better IR-related jokes. Haha...

    Ohisit?? *both hands salute* I won't say which is more important than the other, it goes hand-in-hand. Good scripts without superb acting talents, everything goes down the drain... And Vice versa too.

    Ah...chicak! A bit rusty with my Malay... You boleh! And mind you the name fits the character! LOL

    Maybe Jurong joke more natural to you than to others, hence it is only an endemic spread of humour...

    Haha, good actors rely on good script. Or else, no matter how good Leonardo Dicaprio acts, if he chooses the wrong script, he won't make as big an impact as in Shutter Island and Inception. So yea, I agree on both being hand-in-hand, u can't have actors that are trying too hard and the jokes fall flat...

    Even the ppl in Jurong caught the joke! My colleague from Jurong is a die-hard fan of Noose and she had to live with fact that Jurong is the worst ulu part of Singapore. In Noose's terms, ie.

    Andre Cichak is actually a spoof of the old timer sports reporter Andre Ahchak I believe.
