STAND-UP COMEDY FOR THE FIRST TIME IN MACEDONIA
Stand-up comedy will be performed for the first time in Macedonia every Wednesday at 22:00 CET at Jukebox cabaret.
Actors Sasko Kocev and Gorast Cvetkovski will be the first ones with their own stand-up performances. In an hour, they will entertain the audience with jokes involving everyday events and social topics.
Stand-up comedy is a style of comedy where a comedian performs for a live audience, usually speaking directly to them. Stand-up performances are usually short, where the comedian recites a fast-paced succession of humorous stories, short jokes (called "bits"), and one-liners, which comprise what is typically called a monologue, routine or act.
The idea is to give a chance to young anonymous talents and to established authors to go on stage, hoping that a new Robin Williams, Eddie Izzard, George Carlin, etc will be born. This kind of acting requires great skill. Stand-up performances are held regularly on the Balkans. In an effort to enrich Skopje's night life, an initiative was launched for this kind of entertainment, Jovica Mihajlovski - the co-owner of Jukebox - told a press conference.
