Earlier this week on "The Home Stretch", Melissa Dalton spoke live on air to to Romanian-born comedian Victor Pãtrãşcan about his two upcoming shows in Luxembourg, his background and his thoughts on controversial comedy.

Victor Pãtrãşcan joined Today Radio's Melissa Dalton for an on-air phone chat ahead of his two upcoming gigs in Luxembourg: 'Cancel Culture Comedy' at Centre Culturel Altrimenti on 2 September and 'Failing in Love' at Carlitos Comedy Club on 4 September.

The humorously self-proclaimed 'pretentious' and 'outrageous' stand-up comedian has been performing for over a decade and taking his shows around the world for the last three years. Originally from Romania, Victor says he loves touring around Europe and seeing audiences from all different nationalities united by comedy.

Melissa and Victor discuss his type of humour, including how he feels that some audiences have a hunger for controversial humour. He says it's a "very sensitive time" we are living in and "that's exactly the reason why we should do these jokes". If controversial humour is not for you, 'Failing in Love' is a tamer show about love and relationships.

Listen in to discover how leaving Romania turned him from just a guy to a Romanian and more laughs.
