Comedian Sam See recounts the time he had to explain the peculiar details of a COVID-19 fundraiser he worked on
These are strange times indeed. Still, to quote Dumbledore, happiness can be found even in the darkest of times — if one only remembers to turn on the light. In search of some light in this pandemic, we got comedians to recount funny, ridiculous, and outlandish situations they've found themselves in because of COVID-19. In this instalment, Sam See recalls the time he had to explain the peculiar details of one COVID-19 fundraiser to a charity organisation...
"I spent my circuit breaker time working on a charity livestream, Greatest Rojak Rumble, to raise funds for Project Belanja, a migrant worker initiative. The show was a tabletop RPG about wrestling and went on for eight hours. We raised quite a bit of cash for charity, but explaining it to the organisation was the real delight.
'We raised $2000 for you in a wrestling game! How did it end? Well, a topless lady with nipple tassels threw an old aunty out of a ring, after she had thrown a guy out who had clubbed the Merlion in the knee and thrown out a wrestler played by the guy who sang the National Day song two years ago. Oh, and an actual wrestling champion fell asleep on camera for 20 minutes. Here's your money!'"
