We are a group of passionate comedians who have been doing stand up comedy in Poland since 2010.

We are based in Warsaw and organize regular open mics for the local community and showcases including award-winning international comedians like Daniel Sloss, Al Lubel, Will Mars and many, many more.

Apart from organizing shows in Warsaw and other cities we are also open to private and corporate events for an English-speaking crowd. We can tailor-make our material for your needs and preferences.

Andrew Sosnowski

Born in the 80’s in Kielce straight after Chernobyl exploded Andy Sosnowski followed the fallout and spent half of his life in England, where he had quite a lot of time and opportunities to commit a rather decent amount of mistakes. So many, in fact that he had to return to his homeland of Poland, where he continues his steady decline into madness and despair. A frequent visitor to some of the most renowned hospitals in Europe, he's funny enough to make you laugh rather than feel sorry for him. He also has a moustache under his impressive nose, which he parades confidently around the stage... or the audience if he so pleases... and tells stories of his life, as he just can't help but to get himself in hilarious situations in which he makes ludicrous choices. Thankfully, Andy's more than happy to tell us about them. Expect possibly tall tales of travel, adventure and wind instruments!

Filip Van Der Brym

Polish - born Filip spent the first decade of his life experiencing the dusk of communism and the dawn of democracy in Poland, but grew up and studied in the USA, from where he fled fearing an unwanted reputation for being a sausage-eating thief. In the Netherlands, he got a law degree (for some reason), but he also found ways to get in touch with his inner conscience. Then, fearing a future of long hours, sleeping pills, and divorces - he has come back to Poland to, simply, tell you all jokes… seriously. His relaxed stage persona mixed with well thought-out material will satisfy even the biggest comedy snobs. Intelligent, silly and fun loving, and, of course - woke AF; he will take you with him on a journey of using comedy to deal with life's frustrations and downfalls, as well as its beauty. Filip finds zen in laughter and laughter is within him, let’s zen out together.

Ravi Kumar

Ravi is from India but as he always says, he had a Slavic destiny to fulfill. And so he moved to Poland in 2012. While studying in SGH he co-founded Improv.pl, the longest running English improv group in Poland. Since 2016 he has been performing stand-up with English Stand-up Poland. He's an avid writer and very often found in open mics in Warsaw testing out new materials that he has been writing. He's toured to do headline/showcase spots in Berlin, Krakow, Amsterdam and New Delhi. Currently he's the host of Stories & Stand Up, a monthly show in one of the best artistic bars in Warsaw. His comedy comes from his observations of a fast changing millennial expat culture in Warsaw. He's a self proclaimed meme lord and very concerned about what he calls as adulting.
