The STHH Improv Comedy Show

Every month, Stranger Things Have Happened perform their improv comedy show at the Machinefabriek (Bloemstraat 38, Groningen). The theatre, famous for being the stomping grounds of such groups as NNT and Club Guy & Roni, is now also the regular home of Stranger Things’s monthly comedy shows.

We debut our latest games game here and play many that you won’t see anywhere else. If you want to see the Strangers doing what they do best, from classics to musical games to new and experimental ideas, this is the show for you! Book tickets online here.

Improv Comedy Jams

Every Monday at 21:00 at Brouwerij Martinus (Kostersgang 32-34, Groningen), Stranger Things hosts an open improv comedy jam. For every game we play, we make room for a volunteer to join us on stage. We keep the games accessible to inexperienced improvisers, so they’re the perfect opportunity to try out your first moments on stage! These shows are free to watch and participate in, and you don’t need to sign up to volunteer beforehand.

The combination of a free show and plenty of drinks frequently proves irresistible to audiences, so be sure to arrive early if you want a seat. All improv comedy jam dates can be found on our show list.

Friends of Mine

Friends of Mine is the student team that closely works with Stranger Things Have Happened. They perform several shows each year – to catch them, make sure the check out the show list.

Moreover, their shows have unique structures for each performance, guaranteeing that a Friends of Mine show will always be a fresh experience from some of the hottest up-and-coming improvisers around.

Grown Men

Several times a year, Jelle Bonnema, Chandler Bullock and Thomas Mook gather to perform their Grown Men shows, with performances that are characterised by only two aspects: firstly, that all men tend to play a variety of oddball characters (sometimes one, sometimes five, sometimes each other’s) with an overarching storyline. Secondly, that there is absolutely no structure at all. What could easily be total chaos instead becomes a free-for-all improv comedy play that’s always unexpected.

Because of a limited number of shows, Grown Men is often busy or sold out. To make sure you get your tickets, you can buy them via our show list.


Stranger Things is frequently hired for shows that range from small corporate gatherings to massive events. Our clients include large organisations such as the University of Groningen and the Erasmus Student Network as well as smaller businesses that benefit from the scalability that an improv show provides, from shows as small as fifty audience members to as large as a few thousand. In addition to this, every show can be tailored to the event in question.

We are available for both national and international bookings. If you are interested in finding out more, feel free to contact us for additional information.
