Our Livestream archive

Due to the closures and restrictions to prevent the spread of Covid-19, we had to move our comedy show into the virtual world. Even though we are once more able to be together in the cozy atmosphere at the AHA, we are still streaming our shows for everyone who can't attend in person. You also have a chance to watch all our past shows any time on Youtube.

On your Youtube channel most of our livestreams are archived for later viewing. Please note that some of our livestreams may only be available for a short time or only while they are live on air.
