Two of Singapore’s funniest ladies, Siti Khalijah & Judee Tan, will tear the Victoria Theatre house down with their criss cross multi cultural teh tarik gong cha champalang nonsense.

Witness them compare their NS boyfriends – one in the navy and the other in Civil Defence – and then see them as those very boyfriends.
