Comedy Estonia Turns Streetcar Into Moving Stand-Up Show
Commuters riding Tallinn's number-three tram on Wednesday were met with an energetic, microphone-wielding Australian.
On a day that was a clear contender for the nastiest weather of the current winter, comedian Louis Zezeran turned one of Tallinn's creaky, smelly streetcars into a moving stage for live stand-up.
Zezeran, who told his audience that they don't have to laugh, has been one of the leaders in a small, recently established group of comedians, who are trying to plant seeds for a stand-up scene in Estonia and Finland. The movement is known collectively as Comedy Estonia, which holds English-language performances in pubs around Estonia.
