Welcome to “Republic of Comedy”, the new international comedy club in Lisbon’s growing comedy scene! Bringing shows with the best local and international comedians at Xafarix, a historic venue tucked away in the heart of the city. This week we are proud to feature ANDRÉ DE FREITAS!

In this special show, André will present both some of his latest new work and comedians he’s performed and toured with over the years — in this edition, Philipp Kostelecky and Francesco Kirchhoff!

About André de Freitas

The most international comedian to ever come from Portugal, he has an impressive resumée having supported Jim Gaffigan, Jim Jefferies, Alan Carr, Russell Peters, TJ Miller and Iliza Shlesinger on tour around the World.

A critically acclaimed and award winning comedian who considers himself a world citizen. With a unique blend of hilarious comedy storytelling and an appeal to an international, multilingual audience he has toured all over the globe, including multiple countries around Europe, USA, Dubai and Australia where he performed at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival and picked up the “Best International New Act” Award.

The first ever Portuguese comedian to perform a comedy solo at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival - his debut show - ‘What If’ was critically acclaimed, having received a number of 5 star reviews and also made the list of the funniest jokes of the festival by The Telegraph.

André also has amassed millions of clip views across Instagram, TikTok and YouTube.

About Philipp Kostelecky

Philipp Kostelecky’s originality, international appeal, and first-class physicality have shot him up the comedy ladder.
Raised by an American-Slovenian mother and absentee Austrian father, Philipp uses his unorthodox cultural background and family structure to pose as an external observer and cultivate an offbeat socio-political perspective.

“Outright hilarious… something very special indeed” - The Quintessential Review
“I cried with laughter. Some of Kostelecky's impressions and accents were pitch-perfect, like those performed by a young Jim Carrey” - The Founder

About Francesco Kirchhoff

Rome-born Francesco started his comedy career in Berlin and is now one of the hardest-gigging comedians of the local scene in Lisbon. A constant fixture of most shows here, his comedy explores extremes and self-serving absurdities with rapid-fire punchlines, balancing dark humour and the plain silly.

“Smart, risky… an impressive set” — The Scotsman
