Ale, laughs and lyrics aboard ‘Brew Cruise’ on the Mekong

The Brew Cruise is essentially three functions in one: a relaxing sunset river cruise, a hilarious stand-up comedy show and a thumping live music gig. Riel Brewing craft ales will also be available onboard and on tap throughout.

Emphatically bearded British comic Garrett Millerick is the headline act of the comedy show.

With a reputation as one of the finest live acts of his generation on the UK circuit, he has received rave reviews for his performances, including being described as “Wickedly funny” by the London Times newspaper, “Just wants to entertain you and does it superbly” by the Sunday Times, and “Stand up with an insolent twist” by the Scotsman.

Millerick will be supported by Vu Minh Tu, a comic force to be reckoned with from Vietnam, and Ben Frank, a Shanghai-based American with unique and hilarious observations. Phnom Penh gag godfather Sam Thomas will assume MC duties.

Directly following the comedy comes the thrilling live debut of Initial Dynamo, featuring Hypnotic Fist Technique’s Initial G, Mike Dynamo and Supreme Premium D.

Against a backdrop of funked-out production, the charismatic frontmen connect to deliver the purest lyrical miracle this side of the Mekong, providing a classic hip hop feel guaranteed to get your mind right and your “stankin” booty moving.

Tickets are $20 each, or just $15 if booked in advance (before Saturday) via email to [email protected], and include one free drink.

Customers can pre-book sandwiches from Molly’s to savour on the boat, which departs from the riverside near the Arey Ksat ferry port at 5pm and returns at 8pm.

The event is sponsored by Angkor Research, Rambutan Resort and Giant Ibis buses. Book now to avoid disappointment as tickets are limited.
