The Beard Factor!

not beards 2013

Premiere tonight at Boom Chicago

Ha! Beards 2014. The beards have finally reached the theater. Tonight is the night for a totally new show at stand-up comedy club Boom Chicago here in Amsterdam. It is called ‘What’s up with those beards’ and it was heralded in the newspaper Next this morning.

From the Boom Chicago site: All of a sudden we’re seeing big hairy beards everywhere.  It’s not just on hipsters, Indy rockers and trendy bartenders. You see them in cafes, at school and on the tram. So is extreme facial hair merely fashionable or does it represent something deeper? Is it time for men to be men again?  Or is this just something strange young people do?

What’s Up with Those Beards?

Boom Chicago’s new comedy show holds up a mirror to our ridiculous modern life in 2014. Using improv, sketch comedy, music, video, social media and technology, we take a hysterical look at the trends and issues of our time. What’s Up with Those Beards? looks under society’s facial hair to see what we’re covering up. “

I couldn’t help but feel a bit, erm, déjavued, you know, the been-here-before kindafeeling? {I wrote about Beards 2013, you can read it here, but mind, 2013}

Well, it ís a craze, those beards, ongoing, and rightly so, beards are timeless, so here, now, to the stars and beyond! BILF is the word (Beard I Like to Fumble) and The Beard Factor shóuld be a show (many creative possibilities! ;-))


Chewbacca – Beards are The Future

” So find a date on Tinder. Grab your sneakers. Sort your Uber ride and get to Boom Chicago’s  (…) Are we serious? Is it ironic? Like 2014, it’s hard to tell. “ the site continues.

Ah all these Now! references… I would love to go see!!!

€26,50 per ticket, Boom Chicago – Rozengracht 117, 1016LV  Amsterdam
