Our spiritual home theatre. We have been privileged to play at Theater Pepijn since our first appearance in 2010
Life is a song - sing it. Life is a game - play it. Life is a challenge - meet it. Life is a dream - realize it. Life is a sacrifice - offer it. Life is love - enjoy it.
How far you go in life depends on your being tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving and tolerant of the weak and strong. Because someday in your life you will have been all of these.
Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player, that struts and frets his hour upon the stage, and then is heard no more; it is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.
We need to give each other the space to grow, to be ourselves, to exercise our diversity. We need to give each other space so that we may both give and receive such beautiful things as ideas, openness, dignity, joy, healing, and inclusion.
I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived.
Our cast speak English as their first language, wherever they come from! You can be assured that our international approach gives the best exposure to your students.
No matter how great the challenge, we will meet it! We will travel anywhere, anytime, to give you training, workshops, host your event for provide a full evening of comedy entertainment for your event!

“To succeed, planning alone is insufficient. One must improvise as well.” - Isaac Asimov
The love we have, the love we've known, they comfort us whenever we're alone.
"On behalf of KSG Apeldoorn I'd like to thank you all for your outstanding performances! Definitely the icing on the cake of our Graduation day, thanks again!!!"
"Luke was a wonderful teacher to have as an improv beginner. Besides being very funny and fun himself, he was always enthusiastic and supportive and kind in the way that he gave us feedback."
"Before having started improv, I would have thought I was completely incapable of doing what we are doing… Improv has helped me gain confidence. That is precious"
"And all I ask is a merry yarn from a laughing fellow-rover, And quiet sleep and a sweet dream when the long trick’s over."
We’d love to hear from you. For enquiries about shows, training and workshops, or to hang out over coffee, drop us a line.
