Hailing from Kuala Lumpur, Shamaine Othman is an actor, writer, improviser, stand-up comedian and aspiring director, all rolled into one tasty sushi roll. But did you know she is also the formidable Queen of Four Dragons? Now the Tomboy Tarts, Persis, Raven, Joanna and Siti want to make their stage debut as a foursome at her annual magic gala. With dragons and real-life magic galore, what could possibly go wrong? Find out in a surreal new episode of Tomboy Tirade.
The Tomboy Tarts, Raven and Persis are back again with double the trouble and quadruple the fun with our two new co-hosts, stand-up comic, Joanna Sio and TV producer, Siti Nurul.
This week, they are making their first stand-up debut on stage, as the replacement for a husband and wife smoke and mirrors magic act which have fallen mysteriously sick at the very last minute.
Joanna and Siti are getting weird vibes from too much magic in the annual magic gala. But as far as Persis and Raven are concerned, real magic only exists in Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings. But that doesn’t stop the duo from dabbling in some wicked magic of their own, unknown to Joanna and Siti.
In the meantime, there is plenty of fun to be had, as the Tiraders hang out with the gala organiser and multi-talented funny woman Shamaine Othman, who is also the Queen of Four Dragons (Beat that, Mother of Three Dragons, Daenerys Targaryen!)
Of course, things are always going wrong in Tirade land. Toads do not turn into handsome princes upon being kissed and Dragons are not your cuddly house pets. Find out just what kind of magic implodes in their faces in an Abracadabra-funny episode of Tomboy Tirade, Asia’s biggest and only all-female English comedy chat podcast! (Pronounced ‘tee-rahd’ – the way we like to say it!)
IN THIS EPISODE, WE TALK ABOUT:
1. GUEST BIO
Joanna saves the foursome from being barbecued like bak kwa (BBQ sweet meat) from the dragons. Shamaine Othman tells us what she has been up to lately, the difference between writing for a sitcom and stand-up and why she chooses a subtle approach to her comedy.
2. NEWS HIGHLIGHTS
You heard about Airbnb but what about its sexy cousin, KinkBNB? You guessed it! This kinky homeshare site offers rentals on dungeons, prison cells and adults ‘play flats’. We debate the pros and cons of the renting from AirBNB and if we would rather be spanked by a real human from Kinkbnb or by an Altas Robot from Boston Dynamics.
3. ALL ABOUT SHAMAINE OTHMAN
Siti is smitten by Shamaine’s dragons and wants to adopt one from SPCA the next day. Shamaine shares with us what she really thinks about Games of Thrones, the challenges of being a Malay Muslim female comedian who jokes about sex and relationship as well the support and brickbats she receives from her audience.
4. COMEDY IMPROV GAMES
The Tiraders and Shamaine go up against each other. Who will emerge as the new Queen of Improv? What is the connection between Persis and Raven, two cranky toads and a missing husband and wife magic double act?
