Hermes (1987) Hermes decided to nosedive into comedy a bit over four years ago and immediately entered the finals of small festivals in the Netherlands!
He quickly toured around the Netherlands and picked up shows in neighbouring Belgium and Germany as well. From clubs, to pubs to theaters, if there's a stage, a stool and a mic (and a bar), Hermes will be there!
Meanwhile, he developed his own brand of comedy, combining personal stories with absurd thoughts and sometimes wholesome, sometimes scalding observations about our best and worst habits. His material varies from cheese to driving, from climate change to the end of the world!
In 2022, he started touring with his very first solo show named "You might be here", about his life in Afghanistan in war and peace, his journey to the Netherlands and the weird Western European culture he grew up in.
Hermes also organises events and workshops throughout the country, for different venues and companies.
