Dutch comedian Kristel Zweers Kick-started her comedy-career by winning the second prize in the Dutch Lucky Strike Comedy Talent Tour in 2001. Ever since she has been performing at about every comedystage there is in Holland. As one of the few female comedians she managed to survive the harsh comedy scene, became a regular head-liner and toured Holland and Belgium with 3 of her own 90 minute solo-shows. In 2004 she was part of “De Lama’s” the Dutch version of ‘Who’s line is it anyways’. In 2009 a part of her first solo ” Onschuldig” was broadcasted on tv. She has performed for the Dutch in Curaçao, Bonaire, Singapore, KL, Brunei, Dubai,Portland USA, Jakarta, Beijing and Guangzhou. Since she moved to Singapore in June 2013 she has been performing in English and also this time she didn’t stay unnoticed. She toured with various comedyshows to Sri Lanka, India, Malaysia, China and Borneo.
Kristen Zweers is currently based in Singapore, where she is the founder of the Comedy Cafe, Singapore. She is performing in January and February in Perth, Australia. She let us know via the Dutch Australian Facebook page:
