Amsterdam's highest-rated
stand-up comedy show
on TripAdvisor!

 
 

The Comedy Embassy welcomes foreign dignitaries from the international stand-up community and offers an excellent euro-to-laughter exchange rate. With up to 20 shows every month, The Comedy Embassy has become the home of English stand-up comedy in the Netherlands.

 
 
New York-quality comedy show. … Really affordable and had lot of laughs.
— dssimon2018, New York City
 
 

Having started out in the Red Light District under the name Off the Wall(en), The Comedy Embassy is now housed at the Comedy Cafe. Comedy Cafe has been a dedicated comedy club for nearly 25 years and is located just a ten minute walk from Central Station and a stone's throw away from the Palace of Justice (though the Palace has politely requested we stop throwing stones at them).

So bring a friend, get a drink and enjoy the show. No passport required!

Tim van ‘t Hul

Like Socrates, Tim van ‘t Hul raises many questions. Questions like: “Why does he talk like that?”, “What happened to his mustache?” and “Did he really just compare himself to Socrates?” 

Despite the beard and the weird last name, Tim is not in fact Klingon but Dutch. He’s also a massive nerd (which is why he insisted on mentioning Klingons in his bio) and as such loves movies, science, grammar and referring to himself in the third person (he really does). He does not approve of people calling him a hipster, meaning he probably is one, and sees the world as a meaningless and absurd yet endlessly fascinating place. Tim is cheap, clean and sustainable and is therefore considered by many to be a viable alternative to fossil fuels.

Kor Hoebe

He is half-Polish and half-Dutch. On average, that makes him a German. Kor is a born and raised Amsterdammer. Despite having grown up in relative proximity to the UK, he speaks American English with a Dutch accent. He tries to be vulnerable on stage not because he wants to but because he needs to. He looks like the love child of Richard Branson and Boris Becker. That's why he needs to.

Pauly Russell

Whilst Pauly Russell views himself a complex, philosophical and well-considered man, those who know him describe him as a belligerent drunk Scottish cunt. This conflict of self-identity, mixed with his harsh reality, at least enables him to muse in a relatively entertaining fashion on the various happenings and mishappenings of his life.
