We realy liked the location and the service was nice but when the first comedian started doing almost just sexual jokes it was too much. I think that they can better and we have seen that they can. But everyone can make a perverse joke...More

Great show if you want to go out, and have an evening full of laughter and social contact. Better than watching a movie or stay at home! Would definately recommend it.

The show is in English and we really laughed a lot as it was stand up Comedy. The comedians included all the audience in their program which was really hilarious. We can definitely recommend the show.

Had so much fun at the Sunday night show. Awesome venue and the drinks aren’t overpriced like they are at most comedy venues. Definitely recommend to anyone who enjoys a good laugh - the comedians are top notch! 👍🏼

Attended an English speaking comedy night on Wednesday. Great host, and some very funny acts. The headline act was hilarious. You could tell some of the line up were still fairly new, but despite a mixed audience, (many of whom were doing dry Jan) everyone...More

Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of
tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists
and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the
best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe.
Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones
Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods
such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring

Hi, maybe not. Depends on how progressive and open the education around him has been. Remember this is the most liberal and tolerant city in the world :) . Try it!
