Adrián Minkowicz is an artist from Argentina, residing in New York and Brussels. He is a writer and comedian as well as an actor and director. He is also a lawyer and he holds a Master’s Degree in Law & Economics. He is known as “The Argentinean”.
Adrián is an awesome, sharp, and talented comic (note: Adrian is not writing this, you have to believe me) that performs Stand-up comedy in English as well as in Spanish.
He is one of the new generation of comics that tours and performs around the globe to worldwide audiences in multiple languages. His comedy is based on his personal trials and tribulations. Adrian mainly tries to explain what the heck an Argentinean guy is doing, performing Stand-up comedy in two different languages around the world.
In the year 2007, after winning a comedy competition organised by an important theatre in Argentina, Adrián became the first comedian to have his own one-hour Stand-up comedy show for two consecutive years on the renowned Corrientes Avenue in Buenos Aires.
In 2008,” The Argentinean” was invited to perform at “La Chocita del Loro”, one of the most renowned venues for Stand-up comedy in Madrid. From that moment on he started performing all around Spain, in top venues and on national TV.
Since 2011, he is a regular at the “World Famous Comic Strip Live” in New York City after winning the “Comic Strip Live Lottery Show” having been hand-picked by “Comic Strip Live” legendary owner Richie Tienken, as well as performing at other famous comedy clubs in the city. In 2013, Adrian was granted an artist visa by the US government. He is now an “alien with extraordinary abilities in arts” (“Alien” is a general and legal term not related to Adrian’s accent at all).
In 2012, Adrian had his first Asian Tour becoming the first Argentinean (and maybe the first Latin-American? Check it out please!) to perform Stand-up comedy in English in Tokyo, Beijing and Hong Kong.
In 2013, he will be going on a European Tour that will take him to Scotland, England, France, Belgium, Norway, Germany, Finland and Estonia.
