Hoots and drinks at Phnom Penh’s comedy cruise

Phnom penh's most unique live entertainment experience is coming this Saturday with the exciting fourth edition of The Brew Cruise.

Organised by Comedy in Cambodia and Riel Brewing & Distilling, it will feature the region’s only live stand-up comedy show on a boat, as well as a sunset river cruise, delicious craft ale on tap and a DJ music party.

Headlining the comedy show is the critically-acclaimed British comic Garrett Millerick, who has established a reputation as one of the finest live acts of his generation.

Millerick has been described by The New York Times as “wonderfully funny”, while The Telegraph said “it’s hard to stop and pick holes when you’re being carried away by his powerhouse performance”.

Garrett brings his new top-rated show Smile, which British comedy website Chortle calls “a virtuoso display of unforgiving stand-up delivered with fire in his soul”. He recently performed an excerpt of the show live on Conan, a popular late-night talk show in the US.

Supporting Garrett will be Phnom Penh-based American stand-ups Paul Blomeyer and Sam Thomas, with a DJ music party on deck featuring Dr Wah-Wah.

Punters receive one free Riel beer or a soft drink upon boarding. Food is available to order on board throughout the event. The boat departs at 5pm from the Riverside area behind Hotel Cambodiana, near the Arey-Ksat ferry port. It returns around 8pm. The event is sponsored by Angkor Research and Giant Ibis buses.

Tickets are $20 each, but can be picked up for just $15 if booked in advance via email to [email protected] or via message to the Comedy in Cambodia’s Facebook page.

Tickets are limited so book now to secure your place on the best boat party the city has to offer!
