My favourite Ah Beng has to be broadway Beng. Bringing the broadway and musical culture to a mass market level where everyone including the old and young can accept and enjoy. Not to forget his effort in bringing dialect back!
I mean not all "Ah Beng"s are nice and funny people like us. The "actual" Ah Bengs are usually referring to young gangsters who pretty much get themselves into trouble 1 time too often.
15: The Movie
Not too sure how many of you actually watched this show or heard of this show. It is a show by Royston known as 15 and also known as "Ah Beng Story" to me.
|One of my favourite Scenes.|
I must say this is actually one of the best local shows I've watch. Jack Neo? Hmmm.
So are Ah Bengs bad people? To be honest these guys are the best friends one can have. They are loyal and they will always help you when you need help. They do not care about what car you drive, what school you went or how much you earn a month. They are not pretentious and you can be who you are and say what you want.
Where are they now?
So I heard stories that they got into quite a bit of problems because of this shows, ratting out some information that they shouldn't. They might not be the best actors but they sure did bring out the very real and candid side of the whole culture.
They are not my friends but I hope they are doing well or at least alive. Anybody has a clue? Of course I tried google with no results.
Anybody with information please do let me know. Just out of curiosity. I am not head hunting them.
