Gerthein Boersma

Overview
THE NETHERLANDS - DUTCH - 7 OCTOBER

Gerthein Boersma (bald, beard) made his comedy debut in 2011 and in the same year, managed to reach the final of the renowned and prestigious Culture Comedy Award. He has since grown to be a well-respected member of the comedy community as well as an aspiring member of Comedytrain, performing in comedyclub Toomler several times a week. Gerthein is known for his sharp, smart and surprising jokes, sometimes brutal honesty and, especially, his canny observations. (For example, have you ever noticed how all these comedian bio's are basically the same? How all of the festivals they've participated in are always 'prestigious' and 'renowned', how their jokes are often called 'sharp', 'smart' or 'surprising', and how they are 'especially' known for their 'canny observations'? Well, Gerthein Boersma has. And he's got the brutal honesty to point it out!)

Is het je ooit opgevallen dat deze mini-biografietjes van comedians altijd op elkaar lijken? Hun observaties zijn altijd ‘vlijmscherp’,  hun gewonnen prijzen zijn altijd ’prestigieus’ en ze zijn allemaal ‘goudeerlijk’ en ‘brutaal’. Nou, Gerthein Boersma, finalist van de prestigieuze Culture Comedy Award, heeft het vlijmscherpe observatievermogen om dat soort dingen direct te zien… en de brutale eerlijkheid om je erop te wijzen!
