Upcoming events (3)

Dutch Language Café

Uiltje Bar

What to expect: an evening of drinking something together and having some Dutch conversation. No formal lessons and no expectations to be perfect just a chance to practice speaking and learn from your mistakes. All levels welcome although knowing just a bit of Dutch to begin with helps. We are all here to help each other, no pressure! It's best to know a little bit of Dutch so you are not too lost, knowing a lot of Dutch is not required, and hey, the beer helps! Often some Dutchies join as well. Come and practice speaking Dutch in a relaxed environment. We will announce the location very soon

City Beach the Oerkap

The Haarlem Comedy Factory & City Beach Bar Oerkap present the HAARLEM SUMMER COMEDY!

Get your tickets here: http://bit.ly/HaarlemSummerComedy PROGRAM - 7:30- 8:00 PM: Doors open & Drinks. - 8:00-9:30 PM: Haarlem Comedy Factory. Entrance with tickets. Online tickets with discount: € 12 p.p. instead of € 15 p.p. at the door. - 9:30-10:00 PM: Drinks for who wants to discuss the comedy or just have a chat and a drink. COMEDIANS Michael Jäger Michael comes from the Father-ship of Comedy and he is Germany's export to invade international territory. His Comedy-Camps are notorious. A deadly mix of surprise, authenticity and killerlaughinstinct. 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. Ronan Brosnan Considered tall in his native land of Ireland, Ronan has taken to stand up since moving to Amsterdam to cope with his newfound vertical mediocrity. Stephen Bell Stephen is a confused Irish-born Dutch comedian who is trying to make sense of life by making less sense of it. His ranting and ecstatic behaviour are not for the faint hearted. Despite being from Ireland for some odd reason he still doesn't like horses at all. Find out why... Sarah Warren Sarah is a new comedian to the Amsterdam scene, moving from Canada after an inevitable emotional breakdown flew her across the ocean and into the warm, welcome, and open arms of the Dutch. She has spent the last 6 years of her life traveling and exposing herself to new situations, usually steeped with regret and self humiliation. The by-product of that, is a sense of humour that is honest, dark and begs you to ask yourself what really should and should not be said. Sarah works as the floor manager of, and trains in improv classes at Boom Chicago comedy theatre. Mottos 'Nehme jede Arbeit. Will take any show. No gig too humiliating' TICKETS Online tickets: € 12 p.p. Remaining tickets can be bought at the door for € 15,00 per ticket (cash).
