Pride Comedy Night with Soula Notos and Purdy Holsom
Date: Mon 29.07 Time: 20:30 - 22:00
A night full of stand-up comedy and musical comedy!
A Dutch-Greek comedian with a bite.
Soula Notos is of Greek descent, but was born and raised in Holland, which means she is always hungry. Her comedy is expressive, energetic and full of self-mockery. She loves performing abroad, with one of her favorite gigs being in Riga, Latvia. She made her Dutch national television début in 2011 with her comedy minute on the Dutch talk show The Half Moon.
She is a member of the Comedyhuis (a collective of comedians from Utrecht) (www.comedyhuis.nl) and organiser of the yearly Summer Gay Comedy Nights.
Besides being a comedian, she works as an actress and a host. She also performs her theatrical solo “Who are you when nobody is looking?” at European festivals. More info about Soula: www.soula.nl

Singer-schlongbiter, rapper wrong-righter.
Purdy Holsom is a musical comic from North Carolina (US). She’s classically trained in not giving a fuck. Her performances blend comedy rap hilarity with bluegrass shenanigans. Holsom is a five-time finalist in the International Songwriting Competition and performs internationally. She has shared the stage with major artists such as Big Freedia, Delta Rae, Mandolin Orange, and the Cliks. One fan described her as “Peaches and John Waters having a sleepover.” She currently resides in Berlin and makes sketch comedy as Susan from Canton.
Holsom has released two albums, Purdy Holsom (2014) and Vageezus: Voice of a Generation (2016), several singles, and nine music videos (depending on what you count).

-Deb Aronin (Comedy Durham)
“You know the kind of things you’re not supposed to talk about? She writes songs about them.”
