The EU Comedy Thing comes to Brussels on 9 September

08:46 29/08/2022

English Comedy Brussels kicks off the autumn season with a new show featuring guest comedians from EU countries at the Bouche à Oreille on Friday 9 September.

The EU Comedy Thing with Anglo-Belgian comic superstar Nigel Williams as MC/host presents a top-notch line-up with comedians who are all masters of the international circuit.

Christian Schulte-Loh is "German, but funny" says Der Spiegel, and "one of the most subversive acts ever", according to The Spectator. The seasoned performer is a regular at major comedy venues and TV shows in the UK and Germany.

Crowd pleaser Italian Luca Cupani was a major revelation in 2021 in Brussels. With his dry humour, he’s been dubbed the most British of the new generation of Italian comedians. The dual national has appeared at the Edinburgh Fringe and comedy clubs in the UK and Italy.

London-based Portuguese comedian André de Freitas one of Europe’s comedy rising stars. The 27-year-old has performed in over 20 countries, including warm-ups for Grammy award- winning comic Jim Gaffigan.

Stepping up to present this motley cast is none other than Belgium’s favourite British stand-up, Nigel Williams, a comedian who’s not exactly known for his political correctness. A successful performer in Dutch as well as English, he’s several sold-out tours and DVDs under his belt.

The EU comic evening heralds English Comedy Brussels’ new season with a series of upcoming shows at the Etterbeek venue.

Also on the agenda are The Noise Next Door on 11 October, with the anarchic quartet following up on their Edinburgh fringe success.

Comedy superstar SImon Brodkin (aka Lee Nelson) returns to the Belgian capital on 15 November. The master of high-profile stunts enjoys a reputations as “the world’s most famous blagger”, according to The Telegraph. You’ve been warned!
