Podcast artZINnig #1: comedian Thjum Arts on humour, social work and the meaning of life.

'The contact you make with your audience as a comedian is the highest thing for me.' When comedian Thjum Arts (1993) started breaking through as a comedian around 2018, he wondered if this was what he really wanted. As a human being, should he really want to talk about himself so much? After all, studying social work would also allow him to engage with others. Yet cabaret kept beckoning, precisely because of the deeper contact it can create with the audience.

Connection

Cabaret gaat voor hem niet alleen om de lach, maar ook over wat je wilt vertellen en welke connectie je wilt maken. Al van jongs af aan heeft Arts de neiging om zijn filosofische observaties te delen, maar werd dat lang niet altijd juichend ontvangen. Het podium werd in zijn leven dé plek waarin hij zichzelf en zijn gedachtes kwijt kon.
