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.
Greg just wrote his third book, THE AMERICAN NETHERLANDER: 25 Years of Expat Tales. An official guide to Dutch culture? No. One man’s completely subjective and utterly quirky impression of Dutch culture? YES.
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.
Anthony Ramos is a blunt, honest and unique Stand-Up Comic, with an original twist on observational comedy. A veteran of the Los Angeles Stand-Up circuit since 1997, this southern California boy has told his jokey jokes across the US, Europe, in fact, he’s made people laugh on 3 Continents and a few shitty little islands in the Pacific. He thinks he’s funny. Come prove him wrong! (Just kidding).
Detroit Comedian, Mikaela Burch has risen on the Amsterdam comedy scene. After growing up in a city with a death toll, she is adjusting to life in Holland where police spend their days hunting down culprits riding bikes without proper lights. However, with finding her sweet spot dead center in the middle of a warm stroop-waffle, she now feels it is not all that bad. So why not take on the challenge of spreading laughter to the Dutch society? After all, everyone needs a bit of humor in their life.
Meet Maeva. A French & Dutch yet English speaking comedian. Her comedy has been described as “foul mouthed” to “really nice”. Now that’s range. When not on stage, you can find her consuming copious amounts of cheese and engaging in self-debate on which cheese is the snobbiest.
Maeva has been performing comedy throughout the Netherlands as well as in London and Paris.
