Crackhouse Comedy Club owner blacklisted for life

KUALA LUMPUR: The owner of Crackhouse Comedy Club has been blacklisted for life from registering a business license in the capital following the controversy of a comedy show that allegedly insulted Islam.

Federal Territories Deputy Minister, Datuk Seri Jalaluddin Alias ​​said the Kuala Lumpur City Hall Licensing Committee (DBKL) agreed to cancel the comedy club’s business license effective July 30.

“In fact, we also decided to blacklist the owner of this club to register a business license in Kuala Lumpur forever.

“This means that the owner of the club cannot register any business activity in Kuala Lumpur even if using a different name and company,” he said.

He said this at a press conference after leading the Integrated Operation of the Royal Malaysian Police (PDRM) together with DBKL, the Malaysian Immigration Department and the National Anti-Drug Agency (AADK) here on Wednesday.

Jalaluddin said that several clubs that have been detected carrying out similar activities around the capital are being closely monitored.

“Any entertainment license that we present and issue to each premise must follow the set rules.

“For those who violate the licensing conditions, then they will not be spared from strict action,” he said.

On July 13, the media reported that the premises in Taman Tun Dr Ismail were temporarily suspended from operations by DBKL on July 10 after it was found that it did not have an entertainment permit from 2014 to 2017 and only had a restaurant and beverage license.

Earlier, Siti Nuramira Abdullah, 26, drew attention when a video showing her taking off her baju kurung during a comedy performance at the club went viral on social media.

In the meantime, one of the founders of the club, Rizal Van Geyzel became the focus when a video showed his comedy performance which was ugly and insulting the viral community.

Rizal Van Geyzel pleaded not guilty in the Kuala Lumpur Sessions Court to three charges of uploading videos on three social media platforms that touched on the issue of racial sensitivity on July 22
