Dutch comedians have a tradition of impersonating existing well-known individuals.
Hans Teeuwen rather shows the existential (psychological) barriers between incompatible characters.
When these personalities try to interact it inevitably gets twisted and results in a mindf[_]ck.
Most surprising are the extreme transitions Teeuwen makes.
He can be a tortured poetic soul seeking truth, turn into a sadistic drunk hooligan, morph into a mental retard and change back to the initial poet within one act leaving his audience flabbergasted.
In 2005 Hans Teeuwen retired from the cabaret to focus on other media and forms of art, especially movies.
