Greg Shapiro

This episode was recorded at the American hotel in Amsterdam.

Greg Shapiro is one of the nicest people you will ever meet in show business. He is originally from Chicago where he got his earliest improv training and he moved to Amsterdam in 1994 where he became one of the founding members of Boom Chicago, the Mecca of improv comedy in Amsterdam that has launched former members to Saturday Night Live and beyond.

Greg just published a book called 'How to be orange' which is all about the ins and outs of Dutch culture from its most lovable traits to the most odd and hilarious. He knows so much about Dutch culture he is actually referred to as the American Nederlander. He should be an expert on Dutch culture because he has lived in Amsterdam for 20 years, married a supremely wonderful and beautiful Dutch woman who he is raising two children with.

Greg produced my recent theater tour of Holland and this was recorded on the last day of that tour. In this conversation we both share knowledge gained from our lives in Amsterdam. From how Amsterdam has changed since the Pulp Fiction view of it in 1994 to the new life of today and how foreigners might have to pretend to be Dutch to buy weed soon.

He was a joy to tour Holland with and I honestly believe that if his car would have broken down that he would have given me a piggy back ride to make sure that I got to the show. It's my pleasure to present to you the one and only, Mr. Greg Shapiro.
