Stars of Nickelodeon, dare devil acts and international comedians to descend upon Clarke Quay at the first Singapore Festival of Fun

PRESS RELEASE


The inaugural Singapore Festival of Fun at Clarke Quay is set to thrill the public with three pillars of entertainment during the March school holidays from 11th to 19th of March 2017. Comprising of the Nickelodeon Fiesta in collaboration with Nickelodeon, Clarke Quay StreetFest and the return of the Magners International Comedy Festival Singapore, a week-long programme of all-ages fun, entertainment and activities await everyone.

Nickelodeon Fiesta: 11 – 12 March 2017
Kicking off Singapore Festival of Fun, is the Southeast Asia debut of a two-day Nickelodeon Fiesta weekend. Inspired by Clarke Quay’s rich Singapore history, the free-entry event will see Clarke Quay transform into a carnival-like playground. Kids and their families can participate in a thematic family scavenger hunt around Clarke Quay with built-in historical and edutainment elements that will bring stories of Singapore River to life for participants. In line with the festivities, the carnival will feature re- imagined nostalgic local childhood games with a Nickelodeon twist and limited edition Nickelodeon collectibles to be won. Not to be missed are stage games and meet-and-greet sessions with family favourite characters like SpongeBob SquarePants, Patrick Star, Leonardo and Donatello from the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Chase and Marshall from one of the hottest preschool shows, PAW Patrol.

Clarke Quay StreetFest 14 - 19 March 2017
The first Clarke Quay StreetFest follows Nickelodeon Fiesta, which will feature one of the world’s most famous clowns - Pepe the Clown, who will captivate and entertain the crowd with his inimitable style of tomfoolery. On Wednesday 15 March 2017, he will be joined by World Champion Unicyclist Jamey Mossengren who will perform daring and death-defying tricks while involving the audience such as leaping over a volunteer on his 12-foot high unicycle - the world’s tallest unicycle act whilst juggling a sword, a club and a torch.

Not to be outdone, don’t miss the chance to watch The Kamikaze Fireflies comprising Rob Williams and Casey Martin who received a standing ovation when they performed on America’s Got Talent, in action. Live entertainment at its very best, The Kamikaze Fireflies combines circus and comedy in an exhilarating 40-minute show involving juggling, whip-cracking, German wheel and more.

The fun at Clarke Quay StreetFest continues with Bruce Airhead – a unique street theatre comedy show featuring the metamorphosis of a man and a six-foot balloon in a surreal, fast-paced and insane performance involving an inflatable balloon.

What is a street festival without an escape artist? Meet Rob Roy Collins – Europe’s top street performer and Guinness World Record Holder for the fastest upside-down escape from a soaking wet straight jacket while being suspended 20m high from a crane overlooking Niagara Falls. Through his street performance, Rob Roy has enthralled audiences around the world with his signature handcuffs and chains escape, earning him the moniker – The Houdini of the 21st century. Watch him escape from chains, ropes and handcuffs at the main stage in Clarke Quay’s fountain square.

A roaming magician, one of the world’s most renowned, Ryan Shadow street magician and illusionist has been featured on CBS, ABC and ESPN. With a style like no-other, Ryan Shadow has entertained countless celebrities with his heart-stopping illusions. Catch him as he takes on and amazes audiences in Clarke Quay.

Audiences can expect to be in stitches and hysterics over Malaysia vs. Singapore type jokes.

Comedy Central International's Second Season of 'I Live with Models' Premieres in Asia on Saturday 18 Feburary

PRESS RELEASE


Comedy Central International’s sitcom I Live With Models returns for a second series in Asia on Saturday, 18 February at 8.10pm (TH/WIB), 9.10pm (HK/PH/SG/TW) and 10.10pm (MY). Hand model Tommy moves to New York City where he confronts new challenges, new roommates and a fierce new modelling scene. 

Tommy (David Hoffman), a former barista who gets his big break as a hand model, and commercial model Scarlet (Brianne Howey) head to New York City, as they strive to make it big in the epicenter of fashion. The show airs every Saturday.

Tommy and Scarlet quickly learn that their biggest challenge is living with their new roommates – a brash plus sized model named Jess (Lydia Rose Bewley) and a flighty runway model named Molly (Kamilla Alnes). Their dreams rest in the inexperienced hands of newbie model agent, Marshall (Karan Soni), who sets out to conquer the ruthless NYC modelling industry, one casting at a time.   



Season two sees the models face some new and hilarious challenges. Tommy is cast as a hand double in a shaving commercial and does his best to shave the flawless face of famous model Max (guest star Andres Velencoso), but gets a little too close to his co-star. Molly tries to get over a break-up by leaning on Tommy (much to his delight), Jess attempts to boost her social media following by accompanying a nerd to his high school prom and Scarlet is given the true test of friendship when she is forced to choose between Tommy and a hunky male model to star alongside her in a commercial.

The brand new series sees Emmy nominated Mark Reisman (Frasier) join the team as Executive Producer and showrunner, along with Comedy Central’s Jill Offman and Ash Atalla and Dan Hine of Roughcut TV.

22 Singles Look For Love in New Season of MTV's Matchmaking Series 'Are You The One?'




22 love hopefuls join the fifth season of MTV’s matchmaking series Are You The One? where these adventurous singles are ready to turn their backs on dysfunctional relationship habits and surrender to the series’ signature matchmaking process. The show returns for a new season of perfect matches and passionate possibilities in Asia on Monday, 27 February at 7pm (TH/WIB), 8pm (PH/SG) and 9pm (MY).

Are You The One? is MTV’s wildly-popular dating competition spectacle that strives to answer the question, “If your perfect match was standing right in front of you, would you even know it?”  The rules may be simple, but the game of love is never easy as 11 couples, with the help of host Ryan Devlin, try to pair up with their pre-selected ideal partner as determined by a rigorous, pre-season matchmaking process carried out by a team of professional relationship gurus and psychologists. With only 10 tries to find the winning combination, the love seekers will have to follow their hearts if they want to walk away with love and their share of one million dollars.

In the lead-up to the premiere, MTV is running a “MTV Ex-Factor” campaign featuring music videos and shows which carry themes related to exes, breakups and dating. Catch episodes from the last season of Are You The One? every Saturday, starting 4 February from 9pm (TH/WIB), 10pm (PH/SG) and 11pm (MY). Then, on Valentine’s Day on Tuesday, 14 February at 8pm (TH/WIB), 9pm (PH/SG) and 10pm (MY), tune in for an hour to watch MTV’s picks of breakup music videos. Fans in Malaysia, Philippines and Singapore are invited to live tweet funny and outrageous stories about their exes during this timeslot using #mtvexfactor and watch selected tweets go on-air. Those with the best tweets stand a chance to win foodpanda vouchers. Thereafter, at 11pm (TH/WIB) on Tuesday, 14 February and 12am (PH/SG) and 1am (MY) on Wednesday, 15 February, watch catch-up episodes from the latest season of Ex on the Beach. Information on “MTV Ex-Factor” can be viewed HERE.

Joining the eclectic cast of the new season of Are You The One? is Tyler, whose upbringing on the streets of South Boston has led to a “fake it ‘til you make it” attitude that causes him to lead girls on. Alicia, who’s headstrong in life and love and can never lose an argument. Derrick, the star college athlete who can grab attention quickly, but finds himself alone when he continually fails to commit. And Carolina whose fatal flaw lies in her deep commitments to relationships – even when they’re dysfunctional.

Seven Lip Sync Battle Moments To Remember Before The New Season Hits Asia

PRESS RELEASE


What do you get when you pit two celebrities against each other, battling head-to-head for the pinnacle of all arbitrary trophies, the coveted Lip Sync Battle belt? You get an instant hit, that’s what.

Now heading into its third season, it’s hard to believe that Lip Sync Battle was created from a brainstorming session in a car with creator John Krasinski, Stephen Merchant and Emily Blunt. Two seasons and over 40 episodes later, the show shows no signs of slowing down.

Check out some of the best moments from seasons 1 and 2 of Lip Sync Battle below and view/embed a video showing more highlights HERE. Then get ready for more epic performances as Lip Sync Battle returns for its third season on Tuesday, 6 December. Screen icon Sir Ben Kingsley takes on the extremely talented John Cho in the premiere. Expect the likes of Amber Tamblyn, America Ferrera, Laverne Cox, Lupita Nyong’o, Samira Wiley, and Regina Hall, and more in upcoming episodes. Lip Sync Battle airs every Tuesday at 7.55pm (TH/WIB), 8.55pm (HK/PH/SG/TW) and 9.55pm (MY).

1. Anne Hathaway vs. Emily Blunt
You’ll never look at Anne Hathaway the same way again after watching her spot-on impersonation of Miley Cyrus. The performance saw her leaping onto a real wrecking ball and flipping the bird at her competitor – Emily Blunt, which is perhaps one of the most GIF-worthy moments of the season!


Anne Hathaway performs Miley Cyrus' Wrecking Ball


2. Mike Tyson vs. Terry Crews
Anyone who has seen White Chicks will not be able to forget Terry Crews singing to “A Thousand Miles”. This performance saw him giving what seems to be his best rendition yet as he begins on the piano and proceeds to strip his shirt off as the track progresses. Honestly, we’re not sure which version is better.


Terry Crews performs Vanessa Carlton's A Thousand Miles


3. Julianne Hough vs. Derek Hough
Professional dancer Derek Hough took the stage to perform his rendition of Sia’s “Chandelier” and nailed not only the lyrics but the dance moves as well. Let’s face it, those moves are pretty difficult and a little weird to most of us but Derek pulls them off easily, while looking like an adult, male version of Maddie Ziegler.

4. Josh Gad vs. Kaley Cuoco
We’re getting all the Britney vibes just from looking at this picture. In this episode, Kaley Cuoco recreated Britney Spears’ iconic performance of “I’m a Slave 4 U” at the MTV Video Music Awards back in 2001. She not only dressed and looked the part, she even brought a yellow python on stage with her!

5. Eva Longoria vs. Hayden Panettiere
A memorable moment from this episode would have to be Christina Aguilera’s guest appearance alongside Hayden Panettiere during her performance of “Lady Marmalade”. Aguilera looked amazing as always, which made us forget who we were supposed to be focusing on in the first place.

6. Anna Kendrick vs. John Krasinski
Anna Kendrick stole the show with her performance of One Direction’s “Steal My Girl”. What made it so amazing? She sang to a slide show of competitor, John Krasinski’s wife – Emily Blunt, and even unveiled a custom shirt with a heart shaped photo of herself and Blunt. Now that is something you needed to see for yourself.


Anna Kendrick performs One Direction's Steal My Girl


7. Dwayne Johnson vs. Jimmy Fallon
We can’t talk enough about the best moments and this includes Dwayne Johnson and Jimmy Fallon’s battle. After all, this was the debut episode which set the tone for the rest of the show. It featured Johnson’s iconic eyebrow-raise, which is not something you expect to see during a performance of Bee Gees track “Stayin Alive”.

Green Day is one of the biggest bands on the planet - three childhood friends who rose from the punk underground into the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame.  But their path to stardom took its toll as the band struggled with celebrity status.  Instead of quitting, Billie Joe, Mike & Tré reinvented themselves with daring songs and an unbreakable bond that has lasted over 25 years. The Ride explores the moments that changed their lives, defined their career & made them who they are today.  Green Day: The Ride premieres on MTV Asia on Saturday, 26 November, 7PM (WIB), 8PM (SG), 9PM (MAL).




Some things you may not know about Green Day:
·        Billie Joe Armstrong and Mike Dirnt grew up a few miles from each other on the outskirts of Oakland, California. They met in fifth grade after their schools combined due to bankruptcy in the  school district, and immediately bonded over their shared passion for music.
·        Billie and Mike’s first band was called Sweet Children, which got their first real stage debut at 934 Gilman in Berkeley. Billie Joe recounted: “Playing Gilman Street for us was like we have arrived. You know the first time I ever got on that stage, I just felt like wow, this is where I’ve always wanted to be. And I’m not like the guy that’s watching anymore. I’m the guy that’s playing.”
·        Billie and Mike met drummer Tré Cool after their first drummer, John Kiffmeyer, decided to go away for school. John suggested they jam with “this guy Tre,” who Billie Joe recounted as “crazy – he insulted men, he insulted women, he insulted everybody. Including me.”
·        Green Day released their major label debut Dookie after just three weeks in the studio. They didn’t expect it to do what it did – selling 10 million copies worldwide.
·        When “Time Of Your Life” – the band’s biggest hit – was released as a single in 1997, the band wondered if their fans would accept it. Billie Joe did not know how it was going to go over with their more hardcore fans, and recalled getting “pretty drunk” before going onstage and performing it live for the first time.
·        When the band was inducted into the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame, they were on hiatus and had no immediate plans to get together. The night when they received their honor inspired them to return home and play a show where it all began – Gilman Street – and get back in the studio.
MTV’s The Ride follows today’s hottest artists as they reveal the most game-changing moments that transformed their lives, culminating in the #1 most important moment that changed everything. There’s nothing more powerful than an artist speaking their truth. The Ride lets today’s most talented performers tell their story – like no one’s ever heard before.
