------------Abang Apek & Momo Latiff--------------

Other comedians include Abang Apek or Alias Conggo and a late 50s actress turned comedienne Momo Latiff. Alias Conggo appealed to the audiences in the 60s who found his antics and mimcry captivatingly funny.
His speciality was to speak in nasal tones and communicated in Bazaar Malay using a Chinese accent. To sing after Apek completed his banter on stage was an experience in itself.
The above title translated means: "Having Lost In Gambling, Abang Apek Will Sell Durians." Grassroot humour? Where are they now? I must ask Eusnor Eff.
