Record turnout

LAUGHING Samoans Eteuati Ete and Tofiga Fepulea'i drew a record crowd at Nadi's Prince Charles Park on the first night of the Fresh off the Blane show in Fiji.

The stars kept the crowd entertained with their various skits during the two-hour show to raise money for the Walk on Walk Strong (WOWS) charity.

Despite chilly conditions, the audience at the park laughed to the humorous show that has so far been showcased only in New Zealand and Australia.

Fepulea'i said this show was the funniest the Laughing Samoans had done.

"It's not out on DVD and you want to catch it on the two days.

"It's a great opportunity if you want to see us live," he said.

"We always expect a lot of laughter and joy. Our fans have supported us and kept us going. It has been 11 years since we have been running shows."

Fans of the stars were more than happy to watch their idols last night.

Nadi resident Tagi Kirikiti said she had been watching the comedians since high school.

"For me, their DVDs are always a stress reliever and to actually come and see them in the flesh and to hear their jokes is even better than watching them on DVD," she said.

"I'll never get tired of watching their DVDs and tonight is special because their concert is also something that the whole family can also enjoy. People who don't attend this show don't know what they are missing out on."

The show also marked the first night of the Digicel Bula Festival.
