Welcome! Caustic Comedy enthusiast!
Caustic Comedy Events is an independent organization specialized in producing international stand-up comedy shows. This International Stand-up Comedy Project was initiated in 2011 by J. Wildenberg(39) and is a Pro Bono Publico (for the public cause-)project by this same J.W. (Live)Comedy Events Initiator ; Producer, Booker, Promoter, Location Scout, Talent Manager & Mediator.
The name itself ‘Caustic Comedy’ is based on a particular form of humour: comedy that is acerbic, cutting-edged, even cruel or insulting but always amusing, indeed, corrosive and burning as the word ‘caustic’ itself suggests. Google one of the great names in comedy and the word ‘caustic’ is likely to be mentioned somewhere in their description.
Our remuneration policy
Caustic is run by volunteers, only. They receive no reward for this purpose. The organisation itself does not receive a or any reward privately nor professionally for their duties as a crew nor its future (board)member(s). Costs incurred will be reimbursed.
Artists and partners receive payments on the basis of bargaining or on the basis of receipts, partage(s) and/or out of direct ticket sales. This is determined in advance and also determines who is at risk of insufficient public interests, and thus this project does not aim for any profits and is on a basic expense basis. Everything is reinvested or has already been spent previously; and has been standardized and from its first season onwards.
Our shows are a unique experience featuring a different line-up each time and we are busy setting up a lively fanbase and loyal crowd. Caustic Comedy Events are also a great opportunity for making new friends as well as enjoying first class stand-up comedy. We fly in top acts for all of our professional shows. We also have a new concept in the open-mic section of our shows for our loyal crowd to enjoy. Established in early May 2011, Caustic Comedy Events has produced international stand-up comedy shows and has worked with both individual comedians and agents who represent first class artists in the field. So far we have run 28 editions featuring top names from the international comedy circuit.
We supply stand-up comedy productions for grand cafes, clubs, theatres, festivals, cruise-liners and many other locations. Tell us what you need and we can offer a custom made comedy show which will suit your venue or event perfectly.
Production and Mediation
Caustic Comedy events facilitates interaction between representatives, artists and venues in order to guarantee the production of first rate stand-up comedy shows. Each production can feature up to 9 performers.
We offer a wide PR package via press,(internet-)radio, TV and social media. We also have a team of graphic designers for poster and online designs. We always ensure that each event has an appropriate press release and also audio and video clips for further exposure. We also work closely with a textile printing company, cameraman/editor, a sound engineer and light technician as part of a fixed support team. In 2017 we will be setting up a comedy course for both new and established comedians with a professional comedy coach from London, Logan Murray.

Definition of Stand-Up Comedy
Stand-up comedy is a performance art in which the artist uses little more than spoken word, a microphone and stage craft to provoke laughter and make us see the funny side of life. Often there is thought-provoking or a socially critical undertone. It first came to the Netherlands via the UK in the mid 80’s and later from the US. Stand-up comedy plays an ever growing part in the global entertainments industry. Live stand-up comedy is characterized by both humourous story-lines, mimicry, satire, sarcasm, observational comedy, anecdotes or a series of ‘oneliner’jokes.
Our superb live shows are approximately 90 minutes in duration. (Actual stage time). 2 halves of 45 minutes each and an intermission. Each PRO show features up until 3 comedians plus a top-flight headliner. The evenings are hosted by one of our many excellent MC’s who will guide the audiences though a great evening or matinee of entertainment.
Caustic Comedy Open Mic Nights
On our open mic nights our audiences can meet the comedians of tomorrow as well as established english speaking comedians testing the effectiveness of their verbal weaponry. Shows start at 7:30 and end about 10:30. We hope to introduce this event somewhere in the course of 2017.
Our aim is to bring international Caustic Stand-up Comedy to a broader audience, in cooperation with many different organisations, promoters and venues.
