PETALING JAYA: Comedian Douglas Lim has come out in support of Crackhouse Comedy Club in Taman Tun Dr Ismail, Kuala Lumpur, saying the controversial performance seen in a viral video was an exception rather than the rule.

"The Crackhouse is not a breeding ground for such rude performances as it is a place where budding comedians and professionals try their best to tell jokes to make people laugh.

"They have been operating there for eight years and I have performed there many times but I have never seen anything like this before," he said in a video posted on his Facebook page on Sunday (July 10).

"The performer (if I can call her that) intended to shock, insult and enrage and I consider it as an act of sabotage by an irresponsible person," he added.

Lim was weighing in on the controversy of a 54-second video circulating on social media showing a woman claiming to have memorised 15 juz of the Quran and then discarding her tudung and baju kurung, leaving her in a low-cut top and short skirt.

The club has since been suspended by Kuala Lumpur City Hall.
