De Kleine Komedie

De Kleine Komedie

De Kleine Komedie is a theatre located on the Amstel in the centre of Amsterdam.

De Kleine Komedie (lit. "the Little Comedy") is one of the oldest surviving theatres in Amsterdam. The theatre has become one of the most relevant stages for both beginning and established Dutch cabaret performers and comedians.

De Kleine Komedie building was originally built in the 1780's and first opened as a theatre named "Theatre Français sur l'Erwtemarkt", specialising in the French theatre performances that were popular in those days.

During its long history the location has frequently changed function and name. During the last two centuries it has been a French theatre, a German theatre, a Scottish Missionary Church, a lecture room for the Amsterdam Protestant University (VU), and even a bicycle shed during Word War II. 

Shortly after the second world war it was reopened as a theatre with its current name De Kleine Komedie, which quickly grew into a hot spot for local cabaret artists.
