Spitfree Comedy live by Comedy Club Haug

The Rotterdam-based comedy club Club Haug live streams ‘Spitfree Comedy’ three times a week on Wednesday, Friday and Saturday at 21:00. A talkshow without an audience, but with the club’s own comedians, a special guest and a moderator who varies every show. It is in Dutch and you can support the comedy club by ‘buying a ticket’ (donation are voluntarily). All shows are recorded and available online for a week on the club’s YouTube channel.

A Closer Look by Seth Meyers

The corona virus hits hard in the USA and there’s a lot to say about the sitting government and how it handles the outbreak. Feel like some Trump-bashing? Comedian Seth Meyers takes a closer look at President Trump essentially abdicating his responsibility to handle the coronavirus pandemic in A Closer Look, an item in his talkshow in which he reflects on the daily news. Meyers has set up a stage in his own home, where he started in the hallway and gradually moved to the attic.
