Unique experiment by a seasoned comedy-pro
The Utrecht International Comedy Festival is not just about showing how great comedy is, it’s also about taking the quality of comedy in The Netherlands up to the next level. Which is why the UICF together with Dutch comedian Wouter Monden came up with the show Zomaar, which will have it’s premiere at the festival. What makes this show special, however, is that in the months leading up to the festival Wouter will publish a video diary in which he explains the trials and tribulations of writing a new show. So in a way, this show has started even before the festival has!
With this project the UICF and Wouter Monden want to give beginning comedians in The Netherlands a blueprint for writing their own hour-long show. How do you write a joke? And how do you make sure it works every night? And how do you fit that joke into a bigger narrative? During this unique experiment Wouter allowed the audience to see the highs (and lows) of the comedy-craft. Thus giving beginning comedians an insight into what it takes to write a show. Pretty cool, eh?
Check the Zomaar-videos underneath (mainly Dutch), and then come see Wouter Monden blow the roof off TivoliVredenburg with the final result at the UICF on Friday 6 and Saturday 7 April 2018! Or check out the try-outs of this show on Saturday 27th of January (Facebook-event) or Saturday 17th of March (Facebook-event).
