Greg Shapiro (USA) - Greg Shapiro came to the Netherlands in 1994 and based in Amsterdam, Shapiro now tours as a stand-up comedian. His current solo show is ‘SUPERBURGER: the Man with Split Nationalities,’ sharing the embarrassing truth of being a loud American in a Dutch country. His previous solo show is ‘HOW TO BE ORANGE: Making the Dutch Take Their Own Assimilation Exam.’ Both shows are for anyone with what Shapiro calls ‘MND: Multiple Nationality Disorder.’ Comedian / columnist Shapiro has been host of 'COMEDY CENTRAL NEWS,’ as well as his own weekly vlogs in Benelux and the UK. He is a regular on VARA HUMORTV with his nature series ‘Planet Nederland.’ And Shapiro writes and presents the weekly series ‘Behind European Headlines’
Soula Notos (GRE) - Born and raised in Holland in a Greek family. Crisis indeed! She knows it by heart. Growing up with shouting and gesturing relatives (small bodies, lots of movement), the only relief was comedy. And now, close to her well deserved pension, she loves to tell stories filled with self-mockery to as many people as possible. She has performed at the Free Fringe in Edinburgh, in Manchester, at the International Women’s Festival in Greece and many clubs and venues across Europe. "Great Energy. Completely original." - Funny's Funny Comedian of the Year 2011 Highly Commended Act.
Louis Zezeran (AUS) - runs clubs in Finland and organized the very first Stand Up Comedy shows in Estonia, using the cleverly named title “Comedy Estonia”. Louis has a like-able connection with the audience when he performs. He often talks to the audience, making jokes with the crowd and letting them become part of the action. Louis likes to make fun of cultural differences, and have a poke at everyone.
Stewart Johnson (USA) - has a knack for picking out the obvious yet hidden quirks in society and turning them into laughs you will never forget. He is an American who is based in Estonia, and has a more mainstream, non-offensive style, frequently drawing upon his experiences as a father. Stewart is a founding member of Comedy Estonia, the nationally recognized stand-up comedy troupe. He and his comedy partner have a weekly radio show that is quickly becoming one of the most popular radio shows in the country.
