Ram Adithya Arangi

Fresh off a successful run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Ram Adithya Arangi is a rising international talent in the European comedy circuit. His independently produced 1-hour comedy show, “The Local Tourist” has sold out across Amsterdam, London, Paris, and Berlin. Ram’s comedy covers tales of growing up as a young immigrant across 5 countries and his observations about life as a “neighbourhood tourist” in 3 continents. Racism, religion, politics, cricket – his sharp wit and humour derives inspiration from a broad range of topics.

Here’s what audience at Edinburgh Fringe say about Ram’s comedy on the official website:“Incredibly polished, immediately likeable! Ram dives straight into his storytelling and never lets up. Laughed all the way through”“His set has a wonderful charm and he has a delightful sense of humour.”

Dru Cripss

Dru is a London based award-winning clown/comedian. He’s currently developing exciting improvised musical comedy which gained him attention from the BBC, during his quickly sold out run of the Edinburgh Fringe Festival “Sensational” TimeOut (four stars) “Hilarious” Broadwayworld (four stars)

Nadine Frough

Half Iranian, half American, raised in the UK but now mostly Dutch, her comedy takes serious/sexy topics and makes them silly. Nadine is based in Amsterdam and aside from telling jokes, makes a really good shallot pasta and can deadlift over 100kg on a good day.

Sarath Gopinath

Sarath is the best Indian comedian from Rotterdam. He’s also the only Indian come-dian from Rotterdam. He has small hands but God compensated for it with a 7-inch nose. So he’s the complete package, if you’re into weird packages.

He suffers from an incurable malady called making things more awkward than they should be and is trying to brew some jokes out of his everyday awkward encounters”.

Alexander Nasse

36-year-old Alexander is an Amsterdam based comedian trying very hard not to make sense of the world.

Diego Loiacono

A newcomer from de “Bella Italia”, here to wish you the best Bella serata. Buon divertimento!
