The comedians on stage

Jacob Adriani

Jacob has been MC’ing since his schoolboy days and found his true stand-up comedic form in 2016. Ever since he’s been routinely classified as an originally absurd banter-salesman, among other semi-compliments. He’ll shape an energetic show around the finest stand-up comedians.

Johan van Hespen
Born in Dublin, Ireland. Moved to Holland as an eight year old, and after surviving Zoetermeer and Hoofddorp, now settled in Amsterdam!.

Gillian Graven
Energetic, fast-paced and bubbly are all words that cannot be used to describe Gillian. Since she first took the stage in 2016 she has been performing stand-up all over the Netherlands, defying the stereotype of the bitter and humourless feminist one joke at a time.

Tim Alpherts
Tim Alpherts (1994) can't help but contemplate his existence on and off stage.
Awkwardly balancing the rope between his Dutch and British identity, he writes what he likes, what he hates, and more of those kind of cliches. His comedy is observational, sometimes absurdist, but always authentic. In 2017 Tim won the Persoonlijkheidsprijs at the Groninger Studenten Cabaret Festival.

Tim van het Hul
Like Socrates, Tim van ‘t Hul raises many questions. Questions like: “Why does he talk like that?”, “What happened to his mustache?” and “Did he really just compare himself to Socra-tes?”
Despite the beard and the weird last name, Tim is not in fact Klingon but Dutch. He’s also a massive nerd (which is why he insisted on mentioning Klingons in his bio) and as such loves movies, science, grammar and referring to himself in the third person (he really does). He does not approve of people calling him a hipster, meaning he probably is one, and sees the world as a meaningless and absurd yet endlessly fascinating place. Tim is cheap, clean and sustainable and is therefore considered by many to be a viable alternative to fossil fuels.

Online tickets: € 10 p.p. Remaining tickets (if available) can be bought at the door for € 15 per ticket. Make sure you don't miss it and buy your tickets online NOW.
