Tens of theater plays, dozens of international artists, over 30 stand-up comedy performances, concerts, pantomime and dancing shows marked "Bucharest Comedy Week" that ended on Sunday.
The first international comedy festival ever organized in the Capital City of Romania took place indoor, in some of the city's renowned halls and known clubs, and outdoor, in Enescu Square, Herastrau and Cismigiu Parks and the Historical Center, from Sept. 22-28.
At "The Black Light Theater," an unprecedented project present in Romania, spectators said they were impressed with the dark drapes, the lights and the costumes that created the most impressive images.
In "Tandarica" Theater, children were invited to watch the show "the frog and the princess". Among them, three-year-old Mihai clapped his hands every time another adventure of the characters took the stage. For grownups, "Nottara" Theater offered the story of "Confounded Husband," a famous play by Moliere.
The parks included in "Bucharest Comedy Week" were prepared especially for the children, who can learn tricks, tell funny stories in front of the audience, or play games along with their parents. Visitors also enjoyed Bruce Airhead, his balloon and all his other tricks, from juggling to interactive jokes and magic. "I laughed very much at the theater last night and now I came here with my son, to see Bruce," said Victor.
Music was a big part of the events, with "Quattrocelli" quartet and Romanian bands "Fara Zahar," "Tapinarii" and "Timpuri Noi" taking the stage in Enescu Square.
At the "Palace Hall," the famous comedian Carlos Mencia held his first show in Romania and presented the series of jokes with "Greetings for Dracula."
