    If you’re someone who thinks we should question everything about life, love, religion and politics then you’re going to love Victor Patrascan!
    Victor’s curiosity surpasses his fear. He likes to poke the truth with a stick and see if there’s any life left in it. He’s bringing his honest, thought provoking and unapologetic stand up comedy show to Cluj.
    We’re supposed to be different but we’re all the same. It’s weird, right?
    We’re all just like Victor and he’s just like us and we’re all frustratingly just like each other. Victor began writing jokes about this phenomenon when he moved to London 9 years ago and discovered that people there were just like the people he left back in Romania. Since then, he steadily grew more and more disappointed by how similar we all are.
    We guarantee multiple moments of “Hey, that’s so true!” popping into your head as you watch a subversive, heartfelt and dirty stand up comedy show from traveling Romanian comedian Victor Patrascan.

    In 2019 and 2020, he toured Europe with his solo stand-up comedy show called ‘The Trouble with Being Born Romanian’ in over 30 cities. During the same years, he was at no. 1 in the rankings of ”Roast Battle London”.
