Here's a more 'European' lineup for this show, combining the deadpan delivery of Italian Luca Cupani and the exhuberancy and wit of Finn Harri Soinila, or is it the other way around? Luca Cupani is considered the most British of the new generation of Italian comedians, not just because of his double citizenship (he has become British in 2020), but also because of his style and dry humour.
In 2014 he moved from Italy to London, where he discovered the world of stand-up comedy and fell in love with it. His first ever gig was in February 2014 at the Gong Show of the London Comedy Store (known as “London’s most brutal open-mic night”) and he won it. In 2015 he also won the competition So You Think You’re Funny? at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Luca appeared at the Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal and has taken part in the Seattle and San Francisco International Comedy Competitions.He regularly performs at the Edinburgh Fringe and in comedy clubs in the UK and in Italy. Luca has also gigged in Dubai and across Europe (Netherlands, Latvia, Estonia, Finland and Switzerland) and of course in Italy, where he has appeared on Zelig, the most successful Italian TV comedy show (a sort of Italian version of Live at the Apollo, recorded live at the Arcimboldi Theatre in front of an audience of 2300 people). His solo show in Italian has been broadcasted on the TV channel Rai 5 and it is available on streaming on RaiPlay and Amazon Prime Italia (Italian Stand Up, episode 3). Harri Soinila is one of Finland's most international comedians. He's performed at and headlined various international comedy festivals in exotic places like London, Liverpool, Ljubljana, Barcelona and more. Over all he's performed in 20 countries on three continents.
His observational, one-liner-ish, dark but goofy comedy style is hard to pin down but it's been described as dark humor with a good heart and sometimes the other way around. Also, there's a really funny bit about dogs."His wit and observations are in a different class." - City.fi"You deserved ten points." - Michael Addis, Comedy Central"I'm Batman." - Batman
