Koen West – Dutch Comedian

Stand-Up Comedy

Ever since I was a little kid, I’ve been an entertainer. By early 2017 I finally made it from my parents bedroom onto the main stage.

Wanna see me perform?

My thoughts…

  • From Rags to Rad: My Backstory
    I didn’t become me out of nothing, I became me out of earlier, shittier versions of me.
  • Why am I a stand-up comedian?
    Nobody in their right mind chooses to become a comic. It’s scary, it’s weird and you probably won’t make a lot of money. So why on earth do I call myself a comedian?

This is precisely the time when artists go to work. There is no time for despair, no place for self-pity, no need for silence, no room for fear. We speak, we write, we do language. That is how civilizations heal.
