‘l've reached my borders here.‘ he says. ‘atter working for twenty years in a very small country.‘

He became widely known to Dutch audiences through The Revelation, the tirst of tour New Yeartelevision specials he has presented.

in which his briel isto comment on the events 01 the past year. Now hlslame is such that he is lreguently asked to make personal appearances as a celebrity. When we spoke. he had just relumed lrom opening a new telephone network.

lie is vlsiting Scotland for the tirst time on a late . addition to the Maytest programme. though he once periormed in a two-man show at the Royal Court in London. It came at the tail end at a long partnership

and was. he says. ‘aterrible experience’. The tollowing year he went solo. Perlorming in English does bring its problems. though. He has been compared to Billy Connolly. but says - not surprisingly- that he only understands ‘about twenty per cent' oi Connolly's material. ‘You won't understand my puns, ot course.‘ he adds, ‘butl

hope you will like my stories and my point 01 view.‘

His stories concern themselves mainly with lailure. ‘Comedy.’ he suggests. ‘is man in trouble.‘ So he talks about loneliness. raclsm. Central America, short-range missiles. As lor his point oi view. ‘I'd rather be a slave than a tourist in New Orleans.’ he says. ‘That's my credo'. His comedy does not dwell exclusively on areas at political commitment but. he says. ‘you can always leel it.’

Having never beiore heard ot Maylest. he's openly worried about what to expect at Glasgow audiences. But what would he ask 0! them? ‘Not much.‘ he concludes. ‘only that they are open.’
