Welcome to Brown Nation! As you can probably see, we really do have pride in our culture, so if you got anything to show us about the Filipino Culture that you think we might be interested in posting, then feel free to send it over to:BrownNationCulture@yahoo.com
The Fil-Am Comedy Jam V returns to the Dole Ballrooms in Honolulu, Hawaii on Saturday, April 11. This year’s Jam stars Rex Navarrete, Joey Guila, and Ron Josol, and hosted by local boy Lanai from Island 98.5 FM radio.
Rex Navarrete is considered the premier Filipino American comedian selling out shows across the nation and in the Philippines. Likewise, Joey Guila has set the bar for Filipino comics winning the western division of the First Asian-American National stand-up competition as well as the regional Kings of Comedy in 2003. Ron Josol is the most recognized Asian comedian in Canada performing in shows such as Winnipeg Comedy Festival, International Comedy Fest 2k8, and the LOL Comedy Festival in Hollywood, California.
The country’s biggest, grandest and most anticipated festival is set to take center stage once again—the Sinulog Festival 2009. The Sinulog is an annual festival held on the third Sunday of January in Cebu City, Philippines. The festival honors the child Jesus, known as the Santo Niño (Holy Child), patron of the city of Cebu. It is a dance ritual that commemorates the Cebuano people’s pagan origin, and their acceptance of Christianity.
