New comedy special at Muntpunt Cafe in Brussels on 14 October
A new series of comedy shows invites Sri Lankan comedian Malinda Perera to entertain international audiences in Brussels on 14 October.
Stand-up specialist Insecure & Dangereux has teamed up with city-centre venue Muntpunt Cafe to stage the English-language monthly series.
Kicking off the programme is Perera’s show Not A Drug Dealer. The hour-long solo sees the comedian recounting his experiences as a brown man living in Europe.
After living in Sri Lanka and Malaysia, the comic moved to Austria before eventually winding up in Dublin. Since taking the stage for the first time in 2016, he’s been exploring and observing his inter-cultural experiences by performing stand-up, appearing at a number of prestigious comedy clubs in Ireland.
Show producer and MC at Insecure & Dangereux, Niamh Moroney, is excited to launch the series. “After months of searching for the right place, we are thrilled to work with Anuk and the wonderful team at Muntpunt. We love to collaborate with venues, and to work with the café, which is, in itself a cultural institution. It’s great for us as showrunners and traveling comedians alike.”
The organisation has previous experience in the EU capital, having staged shows at venues such as The Funky Monkey, The Black Sheep and Au Bassin.
