Edo Berger

Edo Berger won several Dutch comedy festivals before expanding to performing in English. He has performed as far away as Tokyo, Moscow and Oman. His radio column on Q-music was nominated for the Silver Reiss-microphone for best radio item. You can check out his documentary about the comedian痴 love for anecdotes about horrible comedy gigs, called Dictator of Comedy, on Youtube..

Neil Robinson

Neil originally hails from Vancouver. Using sharp wit, clever observations, and that ‘nice Canadian guy’ attitude, Neil’s always a crowd-favourite. A regular at Amsterdam’s Comedy Café and a finalist in multiple Sonnema Comedy Competitions, Neil has performed for audiences throughout the Europe and Canada.  

Nira Tal

Nira Tal, born and raised in Israel. Living in The Netherlands long enough to know better. She has the tendency to say the unspeakable (no topic is off limit) whenever she gets a microphone in front of her. Well actually, in general whenever someone is listening: ‘If it’s funny it’s worth saying!’

Sally Porter

Former Dominatrix gives hilarious accounts of her time working in the ‘industry’. From Members of Parliment to bricklayers from mishaps to mayhem she tells the tales of the antics she and her clients were up to in the realms of bdsm.

Vasu Arora

Vasu is relatively new to comedy, but he has had prior experience with seeking attention. He used to think he had a radiating personality. Because people often told him that he reminds them of the Northern Lights.

It took a couple of clarifications for him to realize that it’s just because his last name is Arora. Other than comedy, he also writes code, which generates more laughs per minute from his colleagues at work than his jokes ever have. Come to see the juxtaposition of an innocent face with a not so innocent mind.

The Comedy’s venue is the monumental building Badhuis/Bathhouse.

The Badhuis was built in 1903 to a design by the architect S. Roog. This second public bath in Haarlem served as a bathhouse for the citizens of the Leidsebuurt, a working-class neighborhood that developed from 1876 on the western edge of Haarlem. It served until 1979. The Badhuis will now be turned over in a cozy comedy spot.
