Celebrating Cultures, Promoting Integration
The growing Dublin comedy scene is one of the best parts of the city. The comedy club, The Jesters @ Sin E is the regular performing location for Marcello Fidelis. After moving to Dublin from Brazil in 2017, the comedy scene quickly attracted Marcello and he became a regular. He went so much, his friends encouraged him to try stand up comedy. Today, Marcello performs with the multinational group Comedians Without Borders
Marcello Fidelis along with a Portuguese man named Pedro Guerra Ribeiro formed Comedians Without Borders. They had the goal of creating an environment for international performers and residents, to perform and experience their own native style of comedy.
