The brand-name ‘Caustic Comedy’ is actually based on a particular form of humour; comedy that is acerbic, corrosive and cutting-edge, could be a tad dark, or: biting as the word Caustic itself suggests. Caustic Comedy Events is an independent organization specialized in live international stand-up comedy show-productions.

Caustic Comedy Events 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) and associates. Costs incurred will be reimbursed.
Artists and partners receive payments on the basis of bargaining or on the basis of receipts or partage(s) and/or out of direct ticket sales. In advance this is determined 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 prior and has been standardized from its first season onwards.
Our shows are a jocular 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.
Established in May of 2011, Caustic Comedy Events has produced thirty one international stand-up comedy shows and works with both individual comedians and colleague agency’s who represent first class artists in the field featuring top names from the international comedy circuits.
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 stagecraft to provoke laughter and make us see the funny side of life. Often there is thought-provoking or a socially critical undertone. Stand-up Comedy 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 storylines, mimicry, satire, sarcasm, observational comedy, anecdotes or a series of ‘oneliner’jokes.
Our aim is to bring international Caustic Stand-up Comedy to a broader audience, in cooperation with many different organisations, promoters and venues that contribute to this cause.
Our superb live shows are approximately 90 minutes in duration. (Actual stage time). 2 halves of 45 minutes each and with an optional 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 of amusement.
We supply stand-up comedy productions for festivals, theatres, clubs, grand cafes, cruise-liners and many other locations. Tell us what you need and we will offer a custom made comedy show which will suit your venue or event ideally.
