Stranger Things have Happened (ENG) - improv comedy

At a Stranger Things show, you never know what to expect. Neither do we. Improv comedy involves scenes that are made up on the spot by the actors, usually inspired by suggestions taken from the audience. The result is a unique and fresh show that remains unpredictable for both the audience and the performers. For years, Stranger Things has been one of the leading improv groups in the country, playing hundreds of comedy shows ranging from small clubs to big theatres.

22.15 hrs

Singer-songwriter Bas Schröder (buitenpodium)

Bas Schröder is drop-out student of Dutch, barkeeper, former postman, seller of drug tests and singer/gitarist of Swinder, a band from Groningen. He favours good pop songs and presents his audiences with great concerts!
