Let’s be honest, when you think of Eastern Europe you hardly think of comedy. Then again, when you think of the Middle East you hardly think comedy, when you think of China or Uruguay you hardly think comedy. Did the British people invent comedy? Are Americans the funniest people in the world?

In this talk, professional comedians from Eastern Europe will discuss how ‘funny’ works in their countries. From the censorship during dictatorships to the censorship of modern sensitivities, come listen to our stories and find out where we are in the comedy universe.

Eastern European Comedy Festivali dahilinde Backyard Comedy Club’da gerçekleşecek olan Türkçe Stand-up gecesine herkesi bekleriz! Gecede sahne alacak komedyenler: Aslı Akbay, Şaban Kazım, Ruşen Tuzcu ve Hassan Dervish.

Aslı İstanbul’da yaşayan Londralı bir komedyen ve Türkiye’de Türkçe ve İngilizce şovlar yapıyor. Londra’da sahne aldığı yerler: The Comedy Store, Downstairs At The Kings Head, Laughing Horse ve Amused Moose Comedy Club. Aslı, pek çok farklı komedi şovda yer alırken aynı zamanda Türkiye’de kadınlardan oluşan ‘Çok Da Fıfı’ komedi ekibiyle de sahne alıyor. Çoğunlukla İstanbul’da çıkan grup, Türkiye’nin farklı yerlerinde de gösteri yapıyor. Aslı’nın stand up stili şöyle tarif edilebilir tatlı, kaçık ve sıradışı.

Şaban Kazım, Güney Londra’dan yarı İngiliz ve yarı Kıbrıslı bir Türk. 2010’dan beri stand-up yapan Şaban Kazım Londra’da bir çok mekanda sahne almıştır: The Comedy Store, The Comedy Cafe, Top Secret Comedy, Downstairs At The Kings Head ve The Backyard Comedy Club. Comedy café New Act Night’ı tam beş kere kazanmıştır. Ayrıca Comedy Store Gong Show’da da birincilik almıştır. BBC New Comedy Award yarışmasında son elemeye kalmış ve Stand-up gösterisi bu yarışmadan ötürü BBC Radio 2 ve 4’te yayınlanmıştır.

Kıbrıslı Türk olan Hassan Dervish müzikal stand-up komedyenidir. Bunun anlamı çok komik şarkıları olmasıdır! Hassan Amused Moose yarışmasında yarı finale kadar gelmiştir. Comedy Virgins Max Turner Prize’ ve ‘Leicester Square Theatre’s New Comedian of the Year’ yarışmalarında da çeyrek finale yükselmiştir.

Ruşen Tuzcu Ankaralı bir komedyen. 2004’te Türkiye’nin en büyük mizah dergisi Leman dergisinin stand up yarışmasına girerek adım attığı stand-up dünyasına eğitim için gittiği Londra’da açık mikrofonlarda sahne alarak devam etti. Türkiye’ye döndükten sonra stand-up gösterilere devam eden Ruşen, İstanbul’a taşındıktan sonra da Komikrofon adlı açık mikrofon stand-up komedi gecesini Aslı Akbay ile başlattı ve sunuculuğunu yaptı. Bu aralar İngiltere de yaşıyor ve komediye bıraktığı yerden devam edeceği için çok heyecanlı!

Bu şov Londra’da gerçekleşecek olan ilk karma Türkçe stand-up komedi şovu olacaktır!

Hepinizi orada görmekten çok mutluluk duyacağız.

Bu şovun tamamı Türkçe olacaktır!


AT 18:00 ON THE 25TH OF FEBRUARY 2018
AT Backyard COMEDY CLUB
231 Cambridge Heath Rd, London E2 0EL

This show will be performed in ENGLISH by Vlad and Steve – Island’s Finest Procrastinators.


Two guys talk about what it is like growing up on the most catholic island on the planet…where you can only shag in cars and priests have a show called the Crucif..x factor.

About The Performers: Adored as a god by a tribe in Papua New Guinea (because of rumours that sacred milk seeps from his nipples every third Thursday of the month), many scientists now believe that it is in fact Steve’s enormous manhood, not his breasts that are of more significance to the world.

Born in a 1979 black Cadillac with baby shark skin, it seemed as though Vlad’s destiny would have been that of a two-bit Slavic gangster. However, growing up, Vlad realized that doing comedy is much more important than that. He travelled the world until he landed on Malta, a tiny rock off the coast of Sicily, hanging in there like a tiny annoying tumor. Vlad’s heavily personal sets remind us that there is still something wrong with this world – him.

Good luck to anyone watching their show.


at 21:00 ON THE 24TH OF FEBRUARY 2018
AT THE BETSY TROTWOOD
56 FARRINGDON RD, CLERKENWELL, LONDON EC1R 3BL

The show will be performed in ENGLISH and hosted by Radu Isac with Dimitri Bakanov, Ari Matti Mustonen, Tin Vodopivec, Orosz Ambrus, Tomas Hudak, Asli Akbay and Nikola Silic.


Global Pillage is a comedy panel show podcast all about idiom, culture, customs and norms.

• What do the Japanese mean when they accuse someone of ‘having a cat on their head’?
• What do your friends make you do if you’re unmarried by 30 in Germany?
• What did the acronym NORWICH mean (the equivalent of sexting jargon) if sent between World War Two sweethearts?

All the oddness of humanity is explored in this hilarious new show where TWO TEAMS OF COMEDIANS take on the HIVE MIND OF THE AUDIENCE. This show is about the diversity of human experience. Come with us as we pillage the globe for the strange but true ways of the human race.

This extra special edition will be guest-hosted by Radu Isac – a regular guest on the program and a full time Romanian.

AT THE MUSEUM OF COMEDY
The Undercroft, St George’s Church, Bloomsbury Way, London WC1A 2SR

The show will be performed in SERBIAN by Tim Vodopivec and Nikola Silic.


Tin je iz Slovenije, Nikola je iz Srbije, dolaze u London na poziv Rumuna…ako ovo nije dovoljan razlog za Brexit ne znamo šta jeste.

Tin Vodopivec se bavi standup komedijom preko 10 godina i više od 1500 nastupa u 17 država. Televizijski voditelj, producent, i suosnivač festivala Panč, najvećeg festivala Stand up komedije u ex-yu regionu. Skoro je završio “The Triple Seven Comedy Challenge” gde je nastupao u 7 zemalja na 7 jezika za 7 dana.

Nikola Silić je komičar iz prve postave organizacije Standup.rs i već 7 godina se bavi stand up komedijom. Saradnik je emisije “Veče sa Ivanom Ivanovićem” i kreator animirane serije “Elita”. Skoro se vratio iz Johanezburga gde je predstavljao Srbiju u standup komediji na Delfskim igrama.

Njih dvojca dolaze u London sa svojim stand up comedy nastupom “News From Home”…i ajvarom, ako im dozvoli carina da ga unesu, ako ne, znaju recept.
