What do we do?

Stand-Up Europe aims to professionalise the blossoming international comedy circuit around Europe and to establish a cross-border community of performers and organisers. We act as a connecting hub by coordinating tourdates around Europe and by promoting the English-speaking comedy circuit.



Among other initiatives, we have set up European showcase shows at the Utrecht International Comedy Festival (NL), accompanied by video portraits of some of the acts involved.


We also produced a series of comedy talk shows around European culture from a venue across from the European Commission.


Stand-Up Europe is coordinated by Edo Berger. Edo is an alumnus of European Studies at the University of Amsterdam. While studying, he started performing and has been a professional stand-up comedian for years now. He performs both in Dutch and English and has been on stage in Oslo, Berlin, Moscow, Muscat and Tokyo, among others.

Edo worked in radio and TV as editor and co-host and in theatre education for
Amsterdam-based theatre companies Rast and Theater DeGasten. He also shot and co-directed the stand-up documentary ‘Dictator of Comedy’.
