It was a sad day for famous and rising comedians as well as entertainers when it was reported that Crackhouse Comedy Club was temporarily shutting down. The once underground venue for people to get started on their standup career fell in shambles after the whole offensive performance by a woman who stripped on stage and made ‘jokes’ about Islam.
Other than the recent viral videos, it was discovered that The Crackhouse Comedy Club was only operating under a restaurant licence, violating the terms due to the absence of an entertainment licence. Although it’s currently still under investigation, some people are not happy with what they’ve seen online and took matters into their own hands by vandalising the venue.
Days after it was reported that police are investigating the co-founder of Crackhouse Comedy Club Rizal van Geyzel, red and black paint have been splashed onto the premise. The sign outside the venue can be seen covered in red paint and while the door entrance was covered in red spray paint. The staircase leading to the second floor which is filled with posters on the walls have also been vandalised.
According to TheVibes, an employee of the Hong Leong Bank outlet located right next to the ground floor staircase entrance of Crackhouse, showed that parts of the bank have been splashed with black paint possibly meant for the comedy club but missed by a hair.
It is believed that the incident took place at around 4am where two perpetrators were seen splashing the paints onto the premise. A police report have been made and authorities are currently on the hunt for the duo who vandalised the venue.
In other news, the infamous ‘Crackhouse couple’ that were arrested shortly after going viral started a crowdfunding for their RM40k bail. The so-called performer, Amy managed to raise RM20k for her bail but was then re-arrested according to NST. Her partner Alex is still under investigation and has yet to post his bail from the crowdfund.
