Greg Shapiro

Gregory Shapiro: Comedian. American. Dutchman. The voice of Trump in the ‘Netherlands Second’ video with over 50 million views. Celebrating 25 years in comedy.

Shapiro is known from Boom Chicago, ‘Comedy Central News,’ and for his own YouTube show ‘United States of Europe.’ His books How to Be Orange and How to Be Dutch: the Quiz are available internationally. He performs ‘Trump Up the Volume’ regularly at Boom Chicago. And his solo show The Madness of King Donald was a great success. He also played in various commercials and films such as Down and GTST and was guest in news and Eva Jinek.


Ken Parsons

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.


This Egyptian born stand-up comedian can usually be found looking for a decent happy hour and reading the latest infectious diseases update – only in the hopes it would make her material go viral. After an entirely non lucrative career trying to save the world, she’s now going for public self-flagellation through comedy. Which is in itself a kind of humanitarian relief. Her credits include opening and closing shows for guys who have opened shows for other guys who once started out opening and closing shows for some more guys. When she’s not shamelessly mocking herself through stand-up, storytelling or improv; she’s enjoying solo daytime karaoke in Tokyo,where she now lives, performs and generally looks confused.

Gary White

Gary White is from South Africa. In just two years of living in Amsterdam Gary has developed a deep hatred for FEBO and Dutch Football fans. While performing at shows all across the city, Gary has amassed a die hard following of at least one woman who friended him on FB. Friends have described his performances as ‘surprisingly watchable’. Gary derives his motivation to write and perform comedy entirely from the promise of free drink coupons. Breakfast included.



The online ticket price is € 15 p.p. Tickets at the door € 20 p.p.
