|The third generation of Follies De Mwah|
Last June 23, 2019, Club Mwah introduce the third generation of dancers, full of energy, drive, and passion in performing. According to Club Mwah Administrator Pocholo Malillin, they have 16 new dancers mostly compose of millennials, but he retains 2 lead dancers as the main attraction of the group, they were formed as early as January of this year.
The only venue in Mandaluyong City that offers this kind of entertainment, Club Mwah survive for 16 years because of its corporate patrons, the bar is only open twice a week because they mostly perform in different City of Metro Manila and provinces for many occasions such as corporate events, personal parties like Birthdays and other celebrations.
Malillin told us that despite many competitions in the past many years, they maintain their integrity and they are still staying from where they all started, they don’t compete with other bars and attractions, they know what kind of market to cater for all their shows.
“Entertainment is a competition, sa amin dito marami ng nagtayo, meron ganito, meron ganyan, pero kami we know where we stand, alam mo na ang lugar, di kami nakikipag away sa kanila, alam namin ang lugar namin sa entertainment, tahimik lang kami, alam namin ang caliber namin.” Malillin said.
With the third generations of Follies De Mwah, they have new sets of well choreograph and grand production numbers still ranging from Las Vegas shows, Broadway musicals, musical theaters, different Diva productions and even our very own folk dances presented with a new twist and modern approach. Chris Nicolas is still the name that handles the choreography and directions for all of these new attractions of Club Mwah.
Club Mwah is having a new baby, and that’s the soon to rise “Comico Comedy Bar by Club Mwah Divas” located in the second floor of the same building of the Bar in Boni avenue of Mandaluyong City. It is target to open this August that will present a new style and concept of what people know about comedy bar.
“Yung comedy bar na yun medyo mataas ang antas, hindi yung nang-ookray, hindi yung nangho-hold up, ang gagawin namin ay everybody from A to C puedeng pumunta, na hindi matatakot yung tao na baka okrayin sila, baka bastusin sila na nagaganap sa mga Comedy Bar, gagawin mong finesse yung comedy, gaya sa America na mag-eenjoy ka sa mga salita.” Malillin explain.
Extensive auditions were scheduled in the past to look for new comedians and sing along masters, Malillin reiterates to us that they want to present fresh talent and not talents that you can see from one bar to another. He ensures us that the comedians they hire are all new in the field of entertainment.
