Born into a Reagan-era hunter-gatherer society in Alaska, Kendra started playing saxophone at age 8 inspired by the musical stylings of Lisa Simpson. In 1999 she packed up her Subaru (Betsy) and made the treacherous journey down the infamous Alaskan-Canadian hi-way to study Music at the University of Oregon (GO DUCKS). Ever a wondering soul she bought a one-way ticket to Amsterdam in 2004 to expand her musical education and start her first production company. An avid student of history (and in need to pay the rent) she also started a tour business in 2010 and currently spends her days guiding people around Amsterdam and entertaining people at night for a living
What if ‘out of touch’ and ‘out of luck’ had a baby? You’d probably end up with someone like Niels. Roger Alan Wade once sang “If You’re Gonna Be Dumb, You Gotta Be Tough”
And that sums up Niels pretty good. (Except the tough bit though.)
I like to spend half of my time telling people to pronounce my name correctly and, other half in convincing myself I should change my name to Alexa. Which also happens to be a home assistance device and I am afraid my sarcastic conversations might make people say “Alexa, go fuck yourself”. I like to sing when I have a problem, then I realise my voice is much worse than my problem .
Guy Galloway, from the UK, mixes serious topics with a bit of absurdity.
While Rogier is Dutch, he’s worked hard to make sure you could never tell. Having spent his formative years the US for nearly a decade, he feels like a foreigner in his own country. Rogier’s comedy mostly draws on his personal life and experiences, which fits his storytelling-style of comedy. He claims to not have an ego, allowing him to be the primary subject of many of his own jokes.
Time Out dubbed him the Maestro of the Underground as he has been performing at and setting up events for comedy, music, spoken word and poetry for decades.
Top gigs include Glastonbury Festival, Cologne Comedy Festival, special guest headliner at Musical Comedy Awards in London and a comedy sketch on the mainstage to a packed Paradiso and recently as ‘newsreader’ in a stellar line up at the Roast of Britain, also at the Paradiso.
Online tickets: € 10 p.p. Remaining tickets can be bought at the door for € 15,00 per ticket (cash).
