Van Son needs some serious renovation in his production. The skits have always been his niches, but Van Son 40 in Dallas had shown that the comedies were getting drought out. I tried my hardest to get through Kieu Oanh and Le Huynh’s charmless acting as well as Quang Minh and Hong Dao’s phoniness, and I couldn’t. Kieu Oanh annoyed the heck out me. Even Van Son and Bao Liem’s second skit was such a repetitive.
What Van Son needs to revamp the most is the musical production. Nguyen Khang and Diem Liem gave a superb performance of “The Phantom of the Opera,” but the music brought down their vocals. Van Son should invest in real orchestra, but the budget wouldn’t allow that (my prediction). I could barely get through the songs because of the crappy arrangements. As for the singers, V-pop sang and moved like a bunch of pussies. They even had a clown-ass rapper to join them.
One of the enjoyable performances was Tinna Tinh. She’s cute rock chick and Viet Thao needs to cut out his dick joke. He kept pressing on and on about how many “cu” she brought with her. I don’t know about you, but that shit is sexual harassment to me.
As for Van Son, was he mocking Tuan Anh in his rendition of “Nail Nail Nail.” But then again, the song is actually more suitable for him than Don Ho. The lyric is such a joke and only a joker like Van Son could make it funny. Van Son 40 is a waste of time.
