There’s more to comedy than just having a laugh.

Comedy helps us bridge divides, face our fears, and figure out the meaning of it all. Yeah, we went hashtagdeep.

Our cast is made up of budding international stand-up comedians in Groningen, who work tirelessly to hone their skills and bring you fresh material each month. No topic is off limits, no awkward anecdote a secret, and no one is excluded from our events.

Get together with friends, order a round of cocktails (sharing is caring), and come be a part of a community that’s learning to laugh at the absurdity of love, life, and the human experience.

This is No Restrictions.

Stand-up is all about having a laugh, and sometimes we’re tired of laughing at ourselves. We welcome new volunteers! Want to try your set at a No Restrictions event? We feature an open mic slot every night (max 5 minutes), where we randomly draw names from a hat.

Already an experienced stand-up comedian, and want to share your set at a No Restrictions event? Drop us a line at!

Interested but a little unsure if you’re ready to try your set? Working on your tight 5 but still need a bit of encouragement or feedback? Have a chat with our performers, or contact our organisers Alfid Hadiat or Marina Vergopoulou at to talk about the possibilities.
