6 comedians, 15 minutes each, presented by your host Benjamin Delahaye.

An unmissable night of English stand-up from Switzerland's most exciting new expat comedy talent.

 

Here's the line-up:

Benjamin Delahaye - Benjamin was born in France. While not cutting heads off royalties or inventing a vaccine against rabies, he performs comedy around the world and publishes children's books on Kindle.

What Andreas Krauer lacks in a sense of purpose, he makes up for with his sense of humor. Dry, witty and a few parts macabre, he draws inspiration from his lackluster social life, and the stream of awkward situations it has become. Self-effacing observational humor and existential autobiographical nonsense are where Andreas’s reality, comically collides.

Nadim - Since early childhood, he has felt at home on stage. His passion: to make people laugh by re-examining society's shortcomings! The public discovered Nadim in 2013 on the Open Stage of the Swiss Comedy Club, he never left the stage since.

Sue Nicol - Sue is an American Ex-Pat (her name was Patrick before the surgery), living in Switzerland since 1998! She thought she was only staying for a year, but then she discovered Raclette.

Jack Roberts - Jack came to Zurich to be a hausmann supporting his wife whilst she went to work, making him a progressive, energetic super-dad and hero of a man. He turned out to be none of those things, and to numb the pain Jack turned to stand-up comedy, choosing to subject himself to the ridicule of strangers just to get out of putting the kids to bed.

From Texas by way of New York City, Clinton Stargill, is a Geneva-based stand up comedian. He is the founder the Geneva Stand Up Comedy Club and runs weekly meetups for comedians and a monthly open mic night.

Ri Versteegh - There is no guarantee that you will see Ri do the same thing twice, even on the same night if you sit through a second show, but at the end of the evening you’ll be glad you were born with a different mind and that this woman is not in your bedroom at night.
