Comedian Indro Warkop says he always feels excited when appearing in comedy films.
'I always feel the spirit of Mas Dono and Mas Kasino ['¦] They are always there to help me because I am Indro Warkop,' Indro said as quoted by tribunnews.com.
Dono and Kasino were Indro's group mates in the legendary Warkop DKI comedy group. Kasino died in 1997 after suffering from a brain tumor. Dono died in 2001 of lung cancer.
Being a senior figure in Indonesia's comedy scene does not stop Indro from learning new things from younger comedians.
'I am grateful they still accept me among them,' he said.
Indro said he was happy to see the development of comedy here. 'Nowadays, comedy is more colorful. Back in my day, everyone formed a group but now, we're beginning to see solo comedians taking up stand-up comedy,' he said.
