Comical actions and object that do not need to be imagined, but are present in-real-life

The Concrete Comedy Club serves you: jokes in real life! During a classic stand-up comedy night the comedian (hopefully) talks about comical scenarios which need to be imagined by the audience. The artists and comedians that are invited for The Concrete Comedy Club work with comical actions and objects that do not need to be imagined, but are present in-real-life. The result is an experience which blurs the boundary between the scripted joke and the strangeness of daily life.

Since the beginning of the last century the audience has been made an active part of comical situations which take place in real life. Think about Karl Valentin, who – after many stage performances – designed a theater in 1934 which was specifically reserved for comical remixes of daily objects. An other prominent name in the scene is Andy Kaufman, whos performances merged with his everyday life so often that his worldwide followers thought his death in 1984 was a part of his act.

The location for this event is Club Haug (Boompjeskade 11, Rotterdam)

About IRL

Our lives are dominated by the self-produced realities that we encounter on the internet and social media. This tension between fact and fiction touches upon the core of our leitmotiv IN REAL LIFE. The only way to escape the post-truth is to meet each other in real life. We facilitate these meetings in the form of readings, lectures, masterclasses, workshops, excursions and parties that tangibly express the ideas behind HOME | IN REAL LIFE | NETWORKS.
