A lot has happened over the 3-day long weekend. Crackhouse Comedy Club recently banned and reported a “performer” after she stripped on stage and made offensive “jokes” about Islam which unfortunately caused the venue to be temporarily suspended. The incident has since gone viral on social media.
Netizens took to Twitter to dig more dirt on the woman and discovered that apparently this wasn’t the first time she had done something like this. Merdekarya exposed the woman and her partner on Twitter for their previous antics at their venue.
Merdekarya, a live music venue, posted a long thread on their Twitter account sharing their experience about the viral couple who netizens are calling the ‘Swinging Swindlers’. After Crackhouse Comedy Club got suspended, the live music establishment defended the club by exposing the couple for what they’ve done in the past.
According to the thread, Amy (the viral female “comedian”) and her partner, Alex Chandran were regular customers at Merdekarya. Apparently, the venue received complaints by female customers regarding Alex’s inappropriate behaviour. Other than that, the couple also once proposed to the venue about starting a sex workshop that would include stand-up comedy and a performance by Alleycats.
The venue obviously refused but the swindlers then started spreading slander about the establishment as well as posting death threats. As for Amy in particular, she once accused Merdekarya for serving pork to Muslim customers after she specifically ordered a pork meal which was clearly written on the menu.
The long Twitter thread listed down even more shocking revelations about the infamous couple, their alleged sex cult agenda and death threats. Merdekarya wasn’t the only one who came to Crackhouse’s defense after being temporarily suspended by Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL).
Malaysian comedians and celebs also spoke out about the suspension and why the performer should be the one punished, not the club. Comedians Harith Iskander, Douglas Lim (now deleted), and Kavin Jay (also deleted) shared their thoughts on their Instagram while actress Sharifah Amani posted her frustration on Twitter.

Police secretary Noorsiah Mohd Saaduddin confirmed that the viral woman, Amy has been arrested not long after the story went viral. The case is being investigated under Section 298A of the Penal Code and Section 233 of the Communications and Multimedia Act 1998 though they didn’t specify what Amy is being charged for.
As of now, Crackhouse Comedy Club is still under suspension and investigation despite them being the one to file the police report after the woman’s controversial act. Let’s hope this thing gets settled as soon as possible.
