Abang Apek & Momo Latiff

Other comedians include Abang Apek or Alias Congo and a late 50's actress turned comedienne Momo Latiff. Alias Congo appealed to the audiences in the 60's who found his antics and mimicry captivatingly funny.

His speciality was to speak in nasal tones and communicated in Bazaar Malay using a Chinese accent. For me to sing on stage after Abang Apek completed his banter 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?
