The Amsterdam comedy scene is well appreciated throughout Europe. The International Comedy Festival Amsterdam will host to 6 amazing international acts this year!
The city often plays host to many international comedians from the UK, Australia, Canada and the US. There are a number of venues dedicated entirely to comedy, while many of the larger venues hosts stand up shows.
With a vibrant local comedy scene, Amsterdam comedians appear regularly with their own local type of humour, as do many expat comedians living in the Netherlands. For local comedy shows, it is worth noting that routines are often performed in Dutch, and so it pays to check before buying a ticket which language the comedian will be speaking. International acts, however, are always in their own language, with the vast majority speaking English.
