Who the hell is GS?
Gregory Shapiro: Comedian. American. Dutchman. You may know him the voice of Trump in the ‘Netherlands Second’ video with over 50 million views. And Greg is celebrating 25 years in comedy – in the Netherlands with Boom Chicago.
Greg came to the Netherlands in 1994 to help establish comedy theater Boom Chicago. Along the way he’s worked in Dutch TV & film, and he had his own TV show ‘Comedy Central News.’ He is now a proud Dutch citizen, which he writes about in his first book How to Be Orange: Making the Dutch Take Their Own Assimilation Exam. He has done a number of solo shows in the Netherlands, and he uses his own cultural clashes as inspiration.
Shapiro is producer and host of the YouTube show ‘United States of Europe,’ giving EU leaders the respect they deserve – by ridiculing them on a regular basis. On his YouTube channel, he offers his video ‘How to Do a Trump Imitation, Even When You Have Large Hands.’ As comedian with comedy theater Boom Chicago, Shapiro covers the latest news from the US – and he continues to perform there with the current events show Trump Up the Volume.
Shapiro is working on his 5th solo show The Madness of King Donald.
