The best part of your city trip
What is a Comedy Walk?
A Comedy Walk is a stand-up comedy show with the city as a stage, or, if you like, a city walk with a professional stand-up comedian as a guide.
Are you fed up with the traditional fact-packed, often dull and seemingly never-ending city walks? Let’s be honest, it was never the highlight of your city trip, right? But it doesn’t have to be like that, because now there is Comedy Walks!
A Comedy Walk is designed to make you laugh and have fun while exploring a city. This 1,5 hours walk, will take you past several famous historical places and let you discover the city’s hidden beauties while a local comedian makes fun of the country (its inhabitants), the city and above all of himself.
I bet you always wanted to get the most out of your city trip, but you never knew how. This is your chance! Comedy Walks offers you the most fun and original way to experience a city: city walks have never been so much fun and comedy shows never so engaging.

Little history of Comedy Walks
It is summer 2017. We (Comedy Walks founders Laura and Erik) are renting a tiny room at a beautiful 17th century canal house in the center of Amsterdam. Every day, there is a crowd of young tourists gathered around a tour guide in front of our apartment. Each and every time, we notice that the tour guide is unable to keep the attention of his audience as people look either bored or at their mobile phone.
Laura sighed to Erik: “Why can’t it be funny, why not use a comedian as a city guide?” Erik, an experienced improvisation comedian himself, immediately realized the potential of this idea, namely a stand-up comedy show with the city as a stage. That is the moment the Comedy Walks seed popped. Literally born out of our frustration with conventional rather boring city walks.
Barely six months later, the very first try-out of Comedy Walks took place with stand-up comedian Tim van ’t Hul. It was the beginning of January 2018. It was cold and dark and the audience only consisted of critical comedians. Nevertheless, Tim passed the test with flying colors. Nowadays we run Comedy Walks in Amsterdam, Washington DC and very soon in Berlin.
We are on a mission
We believe that the mission of any enterprise, whether non-profit or commercial, should be geared towards making the world a little better. We have seen that profit maximization doesn’t get the best out of people and often results in a few winners and many losers. We wanted to do it differently. We are confident that if we maximize the fun for our customers, the comedians we work with and our own fun, the revenues will follow. Happiness and fun maximization are key!
So, how does that make the world a little better? Well, we make people laugh and have fun together. Did you know that laughing relieves physical tension, decreases stress hormones and boosts your immune system cells (T-cells)? Try a deep belly laugh and you are even working your abs! Laughing instantly improves your well-being at multiple levels. At the same time we allow comedians to make money with their creativity and passion and as a result improve their well-being. People who laugh and people who follow their passion are happy people. Happy people create a happy world, a better world.
