Brosas on comedy: ‘We can be naughty but not nasty’
Comedian K Brosas is celebrating her 18th anniversary in showbiz through a concert called “K Brosas: 18K for 2018” on April 28 at the Kia Theater.
Aside from showcasing her singing, comedy will be a highlight of the show.
“G po ang rating nito. Hindi ito gig, talagang inayos ko to para show galore. Pwede naman tayo maging naughty but not nasty, ‘di ba,” she said at the press conference on Thursday for her upcoming concert.
Although being comic seems natural for her, she said being a comedian is hard. Being an effective one is not honed through lessons. Having that talent should be innate in a person.
“Hindi naman lahat komedyante, there’s no science behind it, walang workshop diyan. Pwede ka mag workshop, kumanta, mag-artista, magsayaw pero ang pagiging komendyante is all about timing and wit kaya dapat maging thankful ka doon,” she said.
It is no secret that she has enhanced her comedic skills in sing-along and comedy bars which she still does today.
Most comedians who have shown talent were stretched for years in comedy bars. Some notable names who began as stand-up comedians were Vice Ganda, Chokoleit, Pokwang, Pooh, Gladys Guevarra, Jose Manalo, and Wally Bayola. Their training at live comedy shows aided them such that they still continue with what they started. The same is true for Brosas.
“Hanggang ngayon nag-gi-gig ako, nagpahinga lang ako for my concert, pero hanggang ngayon hindi ko binibitawan ‘yung weekly gig sa Zirkoh at sa Klownz kasi ayoko mapurol,” she said.
Ticket sales to her concert, according to Cornerstone Entertainment, is now “almost sold-out.”
Under the direction of Kapamilya actor John Prats, Brosas’ concert include guests like Pooh and Chokoleit, Queen of R&B Kyla, Ultimate Powerbelter Angeline Quinto, Divine Diva Zsa Zsa Padilla, Queen of Soul Jaya and Asia’s Songbird Regine Velasquez.
Also joining her for the first time is her daughter Crystal.
