Rizal van Geyzel – Standup Comedian, Goodflers

Rizal van Geyzel (apparently his preferred stage name), has finally found his, as quoted by HarithIskander, “big balls” in doing stand-up comedy once again after 5 years of being out of the country and far away from the Malaysian comedy scene. Five years ago Rizal who was somewhat known to be the ‘other’ comedian apart from Harith and JitMurad, left for Miami, Florida to supposedly “study” Hotel Management at Johnson & Wales University.

Now having graduated and only worked in ethnic restaurants in Miami with Mexican folks, he’s back in his home country of Malaysia with a new set of eyes and has found somewhat of a perspective on Malaysian living and ready to hit the stage again! A regular at TimeOut Comedy Thursday, he began to shake off the cob webs in leaving the stage with the crowd still chuckling at some of his Eurasian/Malay antics (having born to a Chinese Dutch Father and a Turkish Malay Mother, Rizal is generally confused with what he is exactly).
