The show was opened by some comics like Koide Namizo, Yudha Keling, and also Alphi Sugoi. Despite the limited duration of the skit, each comic who only got to perform 10-15 minutes, successfully mixed the essence of Japanese culture to their skits. Telling stories about their childhood with Doraemon to more random stuffs, as simple as their status in relationships.
The main stars of this event are indeed Bintang and Ernest. With longer duration, they brought a never ending laughter from the audience.
Bintang who is famous with his annoyed expressions and skits shared topics about relationship between boys and girls who get to live together without marriage.
Meanwhile this time Ernest, continuing the skit from Bintang, he also performed the skit about the sex education for teenagers which was very hilarious. He brought up the issue of his minority race along the skit, too, which was his strong point as the Chinese comic in Indonesia.
