Comedians ready for shows

FOR two of the Pacific's most lovable entertainers, a humble encounter with a cancer patient has led them to become firm supporters of the Walk On Walk Strong (WOWS) cause.

Eteuati Ete and Tofiga Fepulea'i, better known as the Laughing Samoans, said they visited Tongan cancer victim, Tae Kami, the teenager who inspired the foundation of WOWS.

"When we visited Tae, she told us our comedy and our DVDs gave her joy and provided relief from the pain that she was suffering," Mr Ete said.

"For us, that's very humbling. No money can make you feel better than seeing a smile on a child's face and that gives us the greatest joy in the work that we do. That's why we support WOWS."
