Comedian Javier Guzman is already recording a provisional version of his New Year’s Eve conference on Friday evening. The comedian does this in connection with the threatening new corona measures that the outgoing cabinet is talking about on Friday. Comedy Central, which broadcasts the show on December 29, announced this on Thursday.

Guzman was forced to play his New Year’s Eve conference without an audience last year. “Cabaret is really an art form where interaction is important,” said a spokesperson. “In this way he wants to prevent that this year.” Guzman will play the show on Friday evening at Theater Diligentia in The Hague.

Comedians Peter Pannekoek and Najib Amhali, who provide the New Year’s Eve conferences for the NPO and SBS, say that they will wait for the press conference on Friday before they will investigate alternative scenarios for the broadcast. Comedian Guido Weijers previously announced that he was canceling his year-end show for RTL, because he had had enough of all the uncertainty surrounding the theaters.

In addition to catering and non-essential shops, the Outbreak Management Team (OMT) advises the cabinet to close cultural institutions such as theatres, cinemas and concert halls from 5 p.m. to 5 a.m. The press conference of outgoing Prime Minister Mark Rutte and corona minister Hugo de Jonge will show on Friday whether that advice will be adopted.

In 2020, BNNVARA broadcast a three-week old recording of Youp van ‘t Hek’s New Year’s Eve conference, because all theaters were forced to close on New Year’s Eve. Guido Weijers did play the performance live, for his own employees.
