Originally hailing from Amsterdam and having trained in Canada gives Micky uncompromising Dutch courage combined with a Canadian sensibility and charm. She is one of most promising and exciting acts to hit the circuit in years. A bedrock of surgically sharp writing combined with a cool and confident delivery make her an exceptional comedian. Her material moves quickly from devastating honesty, to brutal whimsy, to on-point social observations. She already has the aura of a successful comic well beyond her years.
Micky is currently in the finals for 3 national competitions, all making it look easy in her second language. Without a doubt, one of the brightest lights for the future of stand up.
