Aiming to bridge diversity and inclusivity with yummy brekkie and cups of coffee, Inklusiv Warung recently opened at the heart of Canggu. Some of the staff members are Deaf (in line with the owners’ desire to make the place as inclusive as possible), as symbolized by the pink pinup above their name tag. This month, their breakfast menu comes with a free coffee. What a way to start your day!

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.

The Comedy Lab takes place this Saturday at Fat Mermaid here. For more information, check Bali Comedy Club’s Instagram.
