It isn’t easy finding love in Singapore — our inherent desire for professional success puts romance pretty low on our list of things to do, and Singaporeans aren’t exactly the most sociable of people either.

You’d think that the advent of dating apps would help out in that respect, but their mileage varies from person to person, and can sometimes complicate things even further.

If you’re tired of looking for love in the usual places and want to try something a little out of the box, then this upcoming event by comedy club The Merry Lion just might be the wingman you need.

Laugh Out…Love?

Aptly titled F***ck Tinder, the event’s Facebook page bills it as “a comedy night designed exclusively for single people”.

What they mean by “designed exclusively” is that they’ll put 30 single men and 30 single women in The Merry Lion’s rather intimate space, and use the power of stand-up comedy to create a relaxed environment that’s ripe for romance.

There’s a joke about small spaces to be made here, but I’ll leave the humour to the professionals.

To prevent any “awkward 1 on 1 moments”, the audience will also be seated in mixed groups, and the men will change tables after a set amount of time to ensure that everyone gets a chance to meet.

The event will be hosted by The Merry Lion’s resident comedian Scott Mitchell, and will feature a set by Jocelyn Chia as well. The two are no strangers the stand-up comedy scene, so at the very least you can expect a night of non-stop laughs.

The event takes place next Wednesday, and tickets are going for $50 — a little costly for a two hour show, but can you really put a price on (potentially) finding the love of your life?
