Synopsis:

Singapore's longest running live parody sketch show is back after 7 years and 1 pandemic!

The last time, Singapore was turning 50.

Now, we've grown even older after two years of isolation and distancing - but we're back, and there's a lot of spoofing to be done!

The world has changed so much - TV and cinema made way for streaming platforms, Asians are huge in Hollywood, shopping went totally online, meetings are remote and everyone wants to be non-fungible. And Chestnuts is ready to spoof its way through the whole multi-meta-verse!

From Doctor Strange to Michelle Yeoh, Black Panther 2 to Squid Game, Ah Girls Go Army to NDP, LKY The Musical to the NFT the downfall - Chestnuts will skewer them all with our unique crossover parody style.

Films, theatre, celebs, current affairs – nothing escapes our madcap sketches and twisted song parodies! In the past, we've crossed X-Men with Les Mis, Harry Potter with Hairspray, Little Nonya with Bohemian Rhapsody, Nightmare of Elm Street with Glee, even 881 with Annabelle Chong! Like Ms Yeoh, this year's show promises to be everything, everywhere, all at once!

The comeback show features Chestnuts laojiaos Jonathan Lim and Judy Ngo, with new spoofers Nelson Chia, Audrey Luo and Tim Wan; with music by Elaine Chan and produced by Annie Pek.
