LEAVING TRUMPLAND 2.0. Netherlands Tour Autumn 2024


The voice of the ‘Netherlands Second’ viral video is back! Greg Shapiro (Boom Chicago, Comedy Central, BNR, ZDF) presents a personal take on US election 2024. If Trump loses, then we will all be leaving ‘Trumpland.’ But if he wins, will Shapiro ever feel comfortable returning to the country of his birth? Shapiro keeps hearing the question: “don’t you want Trump to be president again?” His answer is the same thing Mark Rutte said in the White House: “Haha! No.”


Leaving Trumpland 2.0

is a mix of standup and storytelling, with a bit of Trump-inspired improvisation at the end. Shapiro wrote Leaving Trumpland 1.0 in 2020 – during COVID. He argues that a Trump comeback would be about as welcome as COVID 2.0.
In 2024, Shapiro gets personal. It was in 2020 that COVID killed his step-father, due to Trump’s virus-denying followers. Four years later, Shapiro is accused of lying about his step-father just to make Trump look bad (like Trump needs help). Shapiro is happy to peel back all the layers and share the unvarnished truth. Leaving Trumpland 2.0 is Shapiro’s most brutally honest show yet.


Leaving Trumpland 2.0 is in English, with some Dutch.

Written and Performed by: Greg Shapiro
