We’ve all seen in American movies, “One man, with one microphone, makes some people laugh in a bar.” This is a stand-up comedy: a stage art in which a man tells jokes on stage, inspired by his personal experience.
In Bulgaria stand-up comedy began in 2012 when the comedian Ivan Kirkov returned from Austria to create Comedy.BG. The only goal of Kirkov and his company is to promote stand-up comedy in Bulgaria. At that time in our country only the form of a solo show was known, and the stand-up was called “StandAp” after the Russian shows on YouTube.
In 2015, Kirkov created the first and so far the only Comedy Club in the country – The Comedy Club Sofia.
Open Mic is one of the most important traditions in stand-up comedy and one of our favorite shows. It is the place from where all the professional stand-up comedians started their careers.
