(completed) The Trouble with Being Born Romanian – Eastern European Comedy Festival

(completed) The Trouble with Being Born Romanian

Eastern European Comedy Festival / Eastern Europe  / (completed) The Trouble with Being Born Romanian

(completed) The Trouble with Being Born Romanian

The show will be performed in ENGLISH by Victor Pãtrãşcan.


Is this offbeat Romanian guy supposed to be the future of stand-up comedy? With his introspective and sometimes dark approach to comedy, keep an eye on this young whippersnapper baring his comedic soul. Bold, brash and a total smartass, Victor Pãtrãşcan wings it in this stand up comedy one-man show and tries to get away with it. Basically, it’s a spur of the moment contemplation on the inane, frivolous and vapid lives we all live, and cake.


at 20:00  on the 24th of February 2018
at The Betsy Trotwood
56 Farringdon Rd, Clerkenwell, London EC1R 3BL
