He is Dutch, and has worked incredibly hard to make sure you could never tell. Having spent his formative years the US, he feels like a foreigner in his own country. His comedy is inspired by his life and personal experiences, fitting his animated storytelling style. He can be seen on a regular basis performing throughout the Netherlands, and has performed in Brussels, Melbourne, and most recently New York. 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. Zoe Brownstone Zoe Brownstone just moved to Haarlem from Toronto where she has been comedian and writer performing regularly in her hometown as well as touring in Vancouver, Boston and Montreal. Zoe has produced her own show in Toronto for over 2 years, a quarterly spectacle called Laugh Your Butt Off (IG @yourbuttoff)). Rami Nima Mixing the dark with the weird. Rami Nima doesn't slam you with rich knowledge, he tries to convince you of nothing. His methode is subtle and tries to disorient Olivia Flood-Wylie Olivia Flood-Wylie is a comedian from the small town of Los Angeles, California, who left home to pursue her lifelong dream of not being in Los Angeles anymore. When she’s not doing comedy full time, she can be found pursuing her real dream of being a waitress. 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.

I will not be there this time but Ary will be there to host. 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.
