Badaboom was founded by comedians Menno Stam and Wilko Terwijn as a brand for quality comedy in the Netherlands. Nowadays, Badaboom.tv is the premier stand-up comedy website of the Netherlands (with successful Dutch and international YouTube channels featuring original content). In addition, Badaboom hosts regular comedy nights in Amsterdam, Aalsmeer and Almere, as well as different touring spots all across the country featuring both Dutch and international acts.
For the Badaboom showcase at ICFR, Menno and Wilko have hand-picked a number of up and coming talents not seen anywhere else at the festival. These include Eric van der Woude (winner of the Culture Comedy Award 2013) and Tobi Kooiman (winner of the Amsterdam Student Cabaret Festival jury prize). Your headliner will be Ruud Smulders, who has won the Groningen Cabaret Festival audience award with his comedy quintet 'DEBJET' and will soon star in the new improv tv show The Alpacas on BNN. Don't miss this exciting line-up!
