The ‘Min Imissu’ gang are back! Don’t miss their daring Valentine's show in Malta this week
Get ready for some belly laughs

Rebecca Anastasi

Satirical humour may not be a Maltese strong point, but the guys behind the live comedy show (and television hit) Min Imissu keep pushing the envelope to shine an (embarrassing) light on the quirks and idiosyncrasies which make the inhabitants of this island... let’s say, special.

This edition, taking place this Friday and Saturday from 8pm at Sir Temi Zammit Hall at the University of Malta, promises new characters and daring content, bound to have some shifting in their seats and many holding their sides with laughter at the inappropriateness of it all. 

The theme is the feast of St Valentine’s, director Abigail Mallia tells us. “So, love, relationships, sex, being single...We are going to be pushing it further, obviously due to the nature of the theme! But social commentary will, once again, definitely be part and parcel of the show,” she said, describing the team behind the series as a “family”. 

Audiences will be introduced to 'Joe Debono Smack Nigi u Nifqghak' and will discover where famous couples, such as Romeo and Juliet, Jack and Rose from Titanic, as well as Johnny and Baby from Dirty Dancing, ended up after credits rolled. Familiar favourites will also make an appearance. “Karmelo Arancini, Eclaire, Angus and Shalajni will all be there, and we are even launching a Maltese format live on the show emulating the success of X Factor. It will be called The Sex Factor,” Abigail continues.
