Experiencing Interruptions?

“The So Sad Show” – from Six Paths of Samsara

“The So Sad Show” is a fantastic opportunity for the ghosts to start all over again. No matter how one dies, if the death is sad and pitiful enough, one is qualified to come on stage to compete in the show. The champion will win a new life. Depressed Tak-Gor is the cook who committed suicide after his wife and son left him, causing him the greatest pain of his manhood.
Depressed Tak-Gor meets Figure Skater Ken, Magician Jane and Singer Fatty in the “The So Sad Show Finale”. They compete for the throne of the Saddest Champion to receive the “Live Again Award”. On stage, when Tak-Gor starts to talk, things twist and turn dramatically into an unexpected end.
