MAMA’s Trainees: The Comedy Edition
MAMA proudly presents The Comedy Edition, a brand new talent development programme focusing on comedy, humour, and contemporary art. Professionals and coaches from worlds of comedy and art will train the Trainees – a group of twelve young people aged 14 to 18 from Rotterdam – to become the new generation of comedians and makers.
The programme immerses young people in the worlds of comedy and art – from memes and gifs to stand-up comedy and critical cartoons – and works towards a final presentation in July 2018.

The Castings, which take place in March 2018 at various Rotterdam locations, are inspiring evenings of workshops, presentations, and, of course, humour. We shall then choose twelve youngsters are for The Comedy Edition. The programme runs every Tuesday evening and Saturday from late March until early July.
