After a sold out run of the "How To Cheat on Your Husband" Comedy Show in the Netherlands (11 cities, 18 shows, and almost 2000 people talking about cheating), Luana is trying to tell another funny story. How she met her therapist, and how she changed her life. Be ready to laugh, be open-minded, and sometimes be talked or be asked weird question you don't even need to answer!

About the show: What It’s Like to Be a Comedian Doing Therapy With a Therapist in Ukraine?The show follows Luana, with her family, relations and somehow "petty" problems, and her therapist in Ukraine dealing with real issues. They both start to break the rules, make each other laugh in the hardest times, tell each other exactly what they think and making huge, tumultuous changes to each other's lives.

This is the somehow real story of Luana's and her therapist's personal story. The show is interactive, heart-warming, based on humour driven from honesty. Even if you are uncomfortable being completely honest because a topic is very deep or too dark in your mind, going there and experimenting with it will pay off in the long run. This is a comedy show, not a political event

Who is Luana?
Luana Matei (RO), originally from Romania, she lived in Tokyo for 12 years before getting trapped in Amsterdam during the lockdown. Her jokes range from family & therapy, love & sex, marriage, divorce, cheating and loss; in no particular order. In 2022/23 she began extensively touring Europe with over 200 packed shows (120+ sold out) entertaining more than 16,000 people. Her comedy is dark, insightful, and deftly encapsulating her experiences living and traveling around the world! She takes vulnerability to another level, pushing the boundaries of "How soon is too soon?"

----Audience reviews:
Amy Fowler (UK): "I’ve seen many comics hold back with how they really feel trying to tiptoe around difficult subjects so they don’t offend anyone, but in the end it comes off as inauthentic. Luana does not offend, and she definitely is authentic, and endearing."

O. Samsonova (Ukraine): I came with my husband and sister. We moved in Europe in April 2022 and we needed some laughs in our lives. The outside world cannot be controlled, but the inner one, we can make it better. Luana, is not only a very funny story-teller, but her self-awareness, the way she asks around the room about mental health problems, who is from Ukraine and how is the family at home, her lack of fear in the face of 100 people in the room, made me feel a bit braver and at home. And her talks with the people in the crowd are so funny I spilled my drink 2 times. You will not forget her.
