 Edo’s full English show ‘Everybody Has One’:

So you’re convinced of your opinion. Namelijk that people shouldn’t be so convinced of their opinions. And you think the modern world has a problem. Namely all those people who say the modern world has a problem. Isn’t then keeping your mouth the best form of protest?

As Dirty Harry said: ‘Opinions are like assholes, everybody has one’.

In Everybody Has One Edo Berger comes to the starting line armed with stone cold facts, he experiments with the audience and feeds you an endless gulp of jokes to wash away the bitter truth.

 

‘Everybody Has One’  is a co-production with Theater RAST.
