Comedytrain International Summer Festival 2014Festivals / Amsterdam
02 July - 02 August, Various times
Stand-up talent from around the (English-speaking) world will be coming to Amsterdam from July 2 to August 2 for the 21st edition of the Comedytrain International Summer Festival!
Comedytrain International Summer Festival
Every year since 1993, the Comedytrain group has sought to offer Dutch residents and internationals living in the Netherlands a taste of the stand-up scene from over the Channel, across the pond and overseas during the summer.
With acts frequently coming from the US, Canada, Australia, Great Britain and Ireland, the art of stand-up and making the crowd laugh takes centre stage.
The festival always takes place in Theater Toomler. Toomler is a Yiddish word meaning "creator of comic tumult" and was used to refer to young comedians in the 1930s.
A name well suited for the venue, Theater Toomler is operated by Comedytrain, the brand for a revolving collective of Dutch stand-up comedians for over 20 years.
