Oktoberfest spotlights Comedy Manila

Thanks to Filipinos adopting the German Oktoberfest tradition, a comedy club’s funnymen will finally shine this month via the free stand-up series Buzzfest.

Scheduled at the Century City Mall al fresco area on October 16 and 30, the live shows will begin at 8 p.m. to coincide with the mall’s Oktoberfest celebration.

Buzzfest will feature seven of Comedy Manila’s stand-up acts. Headlined by the inimitable Alex Calleja, the show’s cast includes Victor Anastacio, Ryan Rems Sarita, Red Ollero, James Caraan, Derf Hebrado, and GB Labrador.

Comedy Manila’s funny takes on mundane topics such as the hardships of married life and the trials of living in the city are sure to please audiences from different walks of life.

The fun starts early as the first 100 guests to arrive will be given a bottle of beer free of charge. The Buzzfest show will be kicked off with fun and games such as a beer pong and a dart contest.

Food may be ordered through participating restaurants Andale by Agave, Caliburger, Comfort Tuesdays, and 12 Monkeys.

To add to each night’s fanfare are raffle draws where lucky guests have a chance to win special prizes from the mall as well.

For more information, call 705-6200.
