About

“Belgium Vs England” - what a game you wanna say ? That’s right ! When the crazy, imaginative and absurd British meet the surrealistic and creative Belgians, it leads undoubtedly to fireworks. To represent England, let’s meet the Racing Minds, a long-form improv quintet, formed in 2010 and has met success 2 years in a row at world famous Edinburgh Comedy festival. For Belgium, we will have spectacular members of the professional Belgian improv League. Two teams, one stage and themes given by the public, that’s going to be some serious crazy stuff. Be sure to be there to cheer for your favourite team.

Welcome to my world

Stephen K. Amos
UK

“Warmest comic around, able to riff off a crowd and make them feel good about themselves” Sunday Times
“It was all fabulous. But it was when riffing with the audience that Amos truly excelled. With a packed venue ready on his side, Amos drew people into his routines; his finely honed sensibility turned innocent remarks into comedy gold” Herald Sun

Gili the Mentalist

Belgium

Develop your five senses to the point that it gives you the impression of having a sixth, that’s the prupose of Gili’s show. More than a magician, Gili is a mentalist. Could this mean that he can read your mind? This is precisely what he does not want you to believe. Without telepathy or clairvoyance, Gili will even show you his tricks.

With a lot of humor, Gili will take you in the misty world of psychics and hypnotists.

The Blue Stocking Society whishes you a mischievous Christmas

Tricity Vogue, Josephine Shaker and Ginger Blush
UK

The Blue Stocking Society is a modern-day women’s institute for showgirls who like their satire with lashings of sauce and their striptease spiced with razor-sharp wit. Inspired by the 18th century literary society of the same name, the 21st Century bluestockings have been hosting their boisterous evenings of cabaret and burlesque for the last two years in London, to great acclaim.
Last year, they set fire to the stage of the Théâtre de la Toison d’Or, so we asked them to come back in order to celebrate Christmas with great amusement.

How to become a parisian in one hour ?

By Olivier Giraud
France

This one-hour comedy show pokes fun at Parisians. Surprisingly, the author is indeed French. That enables him to have a dig at his fellow citizens with a touch of tenderness and a good dose of self criticism.

About



Once a month, on Tuesday, a new and exciting type of evenings will take place at the Theatre de la Toison d’Or.

The FFAct evenings are made of Fun, Food and ACTing.

They will be a unique and interactive kind of entertainment, each time different and surprising. The purpose is to address the growing and bubbling Brussels’ expat community by having the shows in English and to present artists and cultural references that they will be familiar with. From cooking to music, from magic to plays, a very diversified program in order to surprise you with humour and interactivity as common points.

Here is the program : at 6.30pm you stop working and come have a nice drink at the TTO theatre. At 7pm, you attend a crazy funny show and have a blast. Then, you enjoy a nice meal around a big table, meet new people and share your experience.
