the mrbrown show (video): TalkingCock in Parliament, Ruby Pan

Ruby Pan held its first spoken word “live” event, TalkingCock in Parliament: We, the Citizens, at Old Parliament House on Thursday, 24 August 2006. It was in support of Indignation 2006 and was an evening of light-hearted speeches celebrating Singaporean-ness. The mrbrown show was proud to be part of it.

This is a video of Ruby Pan’s segment. She brought the house down with her amazing ability to code-switch and use accents. Miyagi and I were backstage and we HEARD her performance, and for a while, we could have sworn there was more than one person on stage.

(Video footage courtesy of Kelvin of Warning, this is quite the big file hor. Yes, we know Youtube there got, but this version is sharp and clear one.

This mrbrown show is sponsored by Imaginary Friends Studios.

    Watching the videos, I can’t help but confirm that there is no lack of natural talent in Singaporeans; it’s just that the PAP ranks seem to lack this attribute. Hence their perpetual obsession for “foreign talent”.

  4. HeartRuby Says:

    She is easily the best act of the evening… (sorry MB)… with teachers like this, why do we need “native” speakers?

    She sounds great.

    Esp the way she pauses and grins at the part where she
    said: “when ppl go: Wow Really You have no accent!”

    Cash, Mash and who says there’s no talent in Singapore?…

    I haven’t been reading (online) as much as I’d like to, but I did come across three little gems:
