THE MADNESS OF KING DONALD – A Trump Tutorial
An Evening with the Voice of ‘Netherlands Second’
directed by Michael Diederich
The voice behind the famous ‘Netherlands Second’ video (Zondag Met Lubach, VPRO) speaks out! Greg Shapiro (Boom Chicago, Comedy Central, BNR, ZDF) salutes the 45th – and possibly final – President of the United States, Donald J. Trump. No, America didn’t get its first-ever female president, but we did get the first-ever president who’s clearly mentally ill.
‘The Madness of King Donald’ is an evening of standup comedy, with improvisation as well. Shout out your questions for the President, and Shapiro will answer as ‘The Original Fake Trump.’

“There is no shortage of Trump imitators, but Shapiro goes far beyond imitating a voice or physical gestures – he even creeps into Trump’s head. Shapiro can, on the basis of a word or question from the audience, expand into a completely realistic tirade. It no longer has any meaning, but it works enormously well for generating laughs.” – Het Parool
