So you think you can make people laugh?
We posted before about their weekly events, but this time, Bali Comedy Club is offering something new: a chance for aspiring comics to hone their talents. The Comedy Lab is the brainchild of Indonesian comic Reggy Hasibuan as he hopes to see more up-and-coming comics, who usually struggle with finding venues, go for a test drive. This Saturday, the event will be hosted by London-based actor/stuntman/stand-up comedian Renars Latkovskis.
