In the beginning, our improv characters are syrupy sweet and nice to each other all the time. This helps us learn and practice how to yes-and so we get onboard quickly and build our scenes together ''But…but…people aren’t nice to each other all the time. How do I play unsavory characters?

Our Story

Improvised comedy, every Friday night in English at CREA cafe.

easylaughs began in 2005, making stuff up on the spot, inspired by suggestions from the audience. We started as a group called Problem Solved, performing the first Friday of each month in a small theatre, De Cameleon, on the edge of town. We wanted to move to a weekly show so we booked a series of Friday nights as a trial at the Crea Cafe. And we've been with Crea ever since. When they moved to their cool new space in the East we moved with them, performing every Friday night from September till June each year.

We're proud of how far we've come. It feels like we're all grown-up now.

We love our friends at easylaughs Tag Out Theatre and Boom Chicago Academy. Here are all of our matinee shows listed. ⤴️ . Definitely come and see live theatre in the daytime, while the Dutch evening lockdown lasts. Culture, art, community, and a laugh are good for you. 💪 . Not gonna lie: pivoting our courses, shows, plans, hopes, and dreams has been a challenge. But at least, we’re not alone in this. Stay strong, Amsterdam improv companies. 😘
This is tonight!!! Come and watch if you dare!!
September is for going back to school! I have updated this article about creative courses in Amsterdam. Unfortunately, some of the schools had to close their doors permanently, after the pandemic closed them temporarily :( But there are many who are still standing, some offering now only online classes, others in their studio.

"I guess we're gonna compete now" Under this smiling poke is hiding a whole perception of the world, and the very human fear that there is not enough for everyone. Gael wrote an article on the topic, based on his personal history, his hopes and fears, and an impressive infographic. With easylaughs, TVA IMPRO, Boom Chicago, Lo**ta Théâtre d'Improvisation Strasbourg, Cie La Carpe Haute and more in it.

Papote interview vidéo pour vous faire découvrir les artistes de La compagnie qui pétille. For this number 6, @Peggy Pexy Green, Artistic Director of la compagnie, is happy to welcome Joe Bill, currently at home in Chicago, our lovely international superstar, who is her duo partner in 'The impossible to live with'! During this talk, we get to know that Joe: O started improv in Indianapolis, at school, when he was 15-years old (and that was before Peggy was born OMG) O studied sound engineer and psychology before doing stand-up comedy (to avoid going to a therapist) O co-founded the Annoyance Theater in Chicago O loves playing duos because when you are 2, there is no place to hide... A very quick cat-interruption from 'Bomba' passing by the chair.
