Improv Comedy Jams
Every Monday at 21:00 at Brouwerij Martinus in Groningen, Stranger Things hosts an open improv comedy jam. These shows are free to watch and participate in, so they’re the perfect opportunity to try out your first moments on stage with experienced improvisers.
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.
Every month, a crowd gathers in the Machinefabriek at Bloemstraat 38. The theatre itself, 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.
For audiences who only know the Strangers from the jams, our monthly comedy show is bound to surprise them: aside from musical accompaniment, we debut our latest games game here that you won’t see anywhere else. We recommend buying at ticket online via our show list, as seats are limited and the shows are busy.
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.
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 ESN 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 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.
