To realize physically and mentally prosperous artists and to help Betawi artists reach positions of equality in life and a decent living as citizens of Indonesia.


Betawi Comedy was directed in 2000 by Syaiful Amri, who changed the display format in accordance with the demands of the times by changing the music Gambang Kromong into Kromong Modern Plus, with the addition of modern musical instruments, and by adapting current factual stories in every single show. Circa 2007, Betawi Comedy lifted stories of toponymy Jakarta from the data and encyclopedias published by the Office of Customs and the Museum of Jakarta.
