Tim Hartog (NL) was born and raised in Charlois in southern Rotterdam. He is an undoubted Rotterdam original and we are therefore thrilled to have him to perform at the International Comedy Festival Rotterdam 2014! Tim attended the Wilhelminaschool and it was fairly quickly evident that Tim was fond of talking... A lot! At the age of 18, he auditioned in Amsterdam, but he was rejected and had sworn that he would never do an audition again. With a gap year in Utrecht, Tim auditioned for the 'Koningstheaterakademie' and his career began with his graduation performance 'Hokjesgeest'. Apart from shows at the International Comedy Festival Rotterdam, Tim will accompany the comedian-in-residence during his stay in southern Rotterdam.
