Zonder Pardon is a shameless and hilarious rant about our present time. With his jet-black humor and self-mockery, Theo Maassen paces around the stage and loudly thinks about his life, the Netherlands, the world and mankind in general.
Coarse, hard, sad, weird, intelligent, disruptive, essential and confrontational in an indictment against stupidity. Theo Maassen talks about the herd behavior of people and the unfair distribution of wealth and prosperity in the world.
Hans Teeuwen plays piano, sings, acts, talks and makes dance steps. The pace is fast, the presentation is vital. The topics addressed are so diverse that there is apparently no correlation between. But looks can be deceiving.
Teeuwens fifth stand-up show is about love. Small, large, hidden, the physical, the famous and the improper love. Hans Teeuwen unravels that love into forms that you do not recognize, but can very surely sense.
Maassen is 45, he concludes that the direction of his life is firmly put: career wise, wife, home. Also, at 45 it slowly trickles into consciousness that your best time is behind you. To this he makes a comparison with the Netherlands, where he finds that same conclusion. Is the best period of the Netherlands not behind us? We were always such a nice, cozy country.
