X-Tuts wins online poll for Best Comedy Group

By B.KHASH-ERDENE

Mongolia’s leading comedy group, X-Tuts won the “Best of Mongolia 2013” award after a public poll by khunnu.mn.
X-Tuts’ latest stage show “Tergel Sarny Ineed” (Laughter of the Crescent Moon), staged around 30 times, was highly praised by audiences and critics in Mongolia due to its innovative new structure.
Co-director and X-Tuts actor Bayasaa said, “Our estimations show that more than 45 thousand people watched Tergel Sarny Ineed. We usually perform around five acts in our stage shows, but Tergel Sarny Ineed featured 10 smaller acts, which was very well-received by the audience. They said that it felt as if they watched two or more shows for the price of one.”
Comedy plays have gained popularity in Mongolia since the democratic revolution in 1990. X-Tuts has many of the notable pioneers of Mongolian comedy such as State Honored Actress I.Odonchimeg, Stage Honored Actor L.Battulga, and Cultural Merit Artist Onon.
Comedy plays often depict common social dilemmas and conflicts, and are often subversive in nature. X-Tuts Production is the master of such pieces, and Bayasaa attributed most of their success to the well-written stories depicting social issues that don’t receive attention in Mongolia.
Since 1996, X-Tuts has brought laughter and joy to Mongolians all over through their television shows, stage performances and notable comedy miniseries, Sergeesh. The group organizes international and nationwide tours every year.
According to Bayasaa, X-Tuts is planning another set of performances in April of this year. He believes that the group is always working to outdo their previous shows by trying new material and focusing on other aspects of a performance such as music and art direction.
