About this Event

London-based Romanian comedian Victor Patrascan is coming to Amsterdam with his irreverent and outrageous stand up comedy show.

The show will be performed entirely in English.

Do you like dark comedy? 👹 Do you want to be shocked and intellectually challenged at the same time? 🤡 Have you ever seen a Romanian comedian speak broken English? 🧛‍♂️

Victor is bewildered by our society and questions whether it is better to be Romanian or Bulgarian, right or left or just a human person.

Come watch a subversive, heartfelt and dark comedy show. If you are someone who questions everything about life, religion, politics, death and love, this is the show for you.
