First Date: A Hilarious First Encounter

Embark on a risk-taking journey with the dynamic duo, Andries Tunru and Stacey Smith, as they join forces for the very first time in the improvised comedy show, “First Date”!

Witness the magic unfold as Andries and Stacey navigate uncharted comedic territory together. Every scene, joke, and punchline is born in the moment based on audience suggestions. The chemistry between these two comedic maestros is unknown, so you’ll have to come and see for yourself!

Andries Tunru is a Dutch comedian and improv-actor. He won awards at three different comedy festivals and is three time winner of the Dutch National Improv Championships. He’s currently touring the country with his third comedy special “Marmer” and his improv duo “Beperkt Houdbaar”, but might be known best for his second place on the Dutch TV show “De Slimste Mens”.

Stacey Smith is an American comedian based in The Netherlands. Stacey is the Artistic Director and Mainstage cast member at Boom Chicago. She has made close to 70 appearances at 25 international comedy festivals, many of them as a headliner with her solo improvised musical, Stacejam. Stacey is also the AD the Boom Chicago Comedy Festival.

*both actors are in committed relationships, so don’t get any ideas.
