In our regions iriony or stand-up comedy is very common, but that is not the case everywhere in the world. What is humor? And what is funny? And why does one person think something is funny and the other not?
There is nothing so serious as humor. That is why we devote an entire show to it. To let non-Dutch –speakeakers with a different cultural background get to know what is funny in Flanders and to get Flemish people meet humor of other parts of the world.
The audience gets, between laughters, a summary of all kinds of humor, and is put to think about what actually makes us laugh.Suited for native and non-native speakers!
