We worked through a sleepy Monday afternoon trying to find a rhyming word for Lau Sai, to be put into one of six original songs written (or in the process of being written) for the show.
As the flyer says, The Hossan Leong Show is a tv show that’s not on tv, because there are just too many things you can’t say or do on air.
Like the joke Hossan told me (just to break the tension – writing comedy is stressful business) about the Japanese tourist who goes on holiday in the States and goes to a money changer to convert his yen into dollars and is disturbed to find that he gets fewer dollars than he expects.
“Why so little ne?”, he asks, to which the helpful money changer explains that it’s due to “fluctuations”.
Shocked, he yells at the money changer, “Well, fluck you Amelicans too”.
